Thanks to our SITAG family, we are ready to leave for the village. Sweet Betsy gave us some distraction from packing yesterday when she and the girls danced to songs from Conference 2016.
We're so thankful for this prayer warrior and her sweet servant heart. She is WAY more than just somebody who cleans houses at SITAG.
After lunch yesterday, we had lots of helping hands around to measure and freeze tomato paste
and to sort through a 20 kilo bag of onions.
Today, we had lots of those same hands show up to help load the truck.
Even small hands helped.
We couldn't do this whole moving thing without help. Transition is hard, but our SITAG family is a tiny body of Christ. They know how to encourage and help because they've all been in our shoes.
Now, we're getting ready to turn off the light and head to bed. Our tummies are full because some of our precious friends hosted us for supper. Our minds and bodies are tired, but refreshed from the sweet fellowship. In the morning, the truck will pull out at first light to take us down to the wharf. Please pray for calm seas as we travel all day back to Marulaon Village. We don't know what we will find with the water situation when we return, so please continue to pray for rain. And as always, we depend on the slow radio/e-mail connection (no internet) which usually doesn't work well. Thanks for upholding the translation project in prayer, too! We're excited at the translation process that is being done and look forward to watching God work.
