Yesterday was the last day of cooking before we move, so we really made it count. Sarah was the primary chef, and she churned out tons of cookies to share around the community as thank you gifts. Aaron took some to the doctor who helps us get the meds we need to take to the village, some to the Kosco office, some to the church office, and some to the SITAG office. And we still have some more to deliver today! Sarah also made several loaves of banana bread to share and to take with us to Marulaon to make the transition a little bit easier.
After all these years, Aaron is still my knight in shining armor. Right now, he is sitting in the ERC, fighting the UUPlus village radio/e-mail dragon while he instant messages with a guy in America who knows more about the system. Still no village e-mail, but Aaron is working hard to get it fixed as soon as possible.
And our friend, Edi, will be on her way to the Solomons next week. We really appreciate your prayers for her as she makes the long trek to come live in the village for a month.
She'll leave on a Tuesday and arrive in Marulaon on Friday, if the weather is good. Not only will she have to adjust to the Solomon Islands' culture, but she will also have to adjust to our family's culture in the small apace of about 900 square feet and zero privacy. We are excited about what God is going to do in all of our lives while she is with us - will you please pray for us all?
