Another sickness...

Homesickness... Just wanted to let you know to continue to pray for us as we go through cycles of Homesickness... Okay really me. Bob loves it here, He is so cute that he doesn't really recognize that the food taste different. How does he not notice?
I am the one who vents it mostly. Oh Mylanta... I miss my friends, my family, and my familiar surroundings. Like my front porch. I try not and focus on it most days but the days that I have been sick it comes like a huge wave and pounds me. We are here in Africa and I have to say it out loud. Every day is an adjustment. I know my blogs make it sound that we have settled in and adjusted but it is of course it is not that easy. The food, the driving, the bugs, the different culture and did I mention the bugs. The days without electricity or water that is when it is really prevalent that we are not in America. Days are blurring together but after living here for 63 days. Yes today I am counting that do I miss home...
But those days that I do miss home I look at where God has called us and say to myself. Hush it sister and step up to plate and continue to serve right where He has us. And I go out and keep on keeping on.

So just wanted to give you a realistic picture of me.
P.S. I am making Bob Blog starting next week. I need time to emotional prepare him to blog. I am the natural blogger and he is not! He is a natural adapter to third world countries and I am not. :)

Miss you too. Been thinking about you a lot and praying that this month and the next you will be encouraged. God has brought you through a lot already and He will carry you through this too. Not just carry you, but help you thrive and enjoy life there. Give your girls a kiss for me. Miss seeing those little blond heads.
