|We're stilling hanging in here.|
Our two little girls are doing fine in Shea, except when it comes to sleep. On average Joy and I are waking up 4 times a night to tend to them. I pray that this doesn't continue too much longer. We need some serious sleep!
There is a terrible fuel shortage in Lethem. It's very difficult to get any sort of flying gas for a reasonable amount. Those who do have will only sell it for $8 US a gallon. We do what we have to do, but its cutting pretty deeply at this moment.
I wish the devil would lighten up and take a vacation, but no such luck. When we got out to Shea we discovered yet another set of problems. Sigh... One of our members has become involved with another mans wife, and now the whole village has become aware of it, and are asking the toshao to stop work on the church. We've had a good talk with all parties, and I think the immediate crisis is over, but the problem is still very serious. Please pray for us.
We're working on getting more livable living arrangement. We've already finished a shower house, and are working on installing a sink and some plumbing.
I need to run. Thanks for all your prayers in our behalf.
