A place of peace to run to, to wrestle with stresses and losses (not belongings though that also was involved,, but relationships, security, ministry, and the like) and let them go as we find rest and energy again as precious gifts from the Lord.Excellent medical care with a price tag of less than $400 for an emergency room visit for a new cast (acrylic now after two old fashioned plaster failures in Cameroon) with follow up visits to an orthopod with 2 sets of xrays all included!! There was a chance for a need for surgery to place a plate and screws on the forearm, but thankfully the healing has gone well enough and the slight lack of range of motion shouldn’t be a problem.
Last but not least, Samfam!!!! Being with Sam, Anna, Elaina, and Sawyer is a delight for our hearts and balm for our weary souls!
Who knew we’d think we were back in California? The weather and the plants, not to mention the fact that English is the main language spoken here. That’s not to say that I always understand or am understood!
This is a 4000 piece puzzle, a first for us.
Roy is delighted, at the braii – that’s BBQ to us.
Thank you so much for your prayers for us and for those we’ve left behind in CAR for the time being. We are not sure how long we’ll need to be in South Africa – at this point it looks like at least to the end of November. We are hoping for the best and a return to be with our beloved friends and ministries, but only time will tell.
