The dust begins to settle

As the dust settles in the house, we are thinking and praying forward.

Sunday we slept for the first time in the new place and love it. It will be an excellent venue for our work as well as hosting friends who come to assist with community development, etc. God's timing is perfect: the family arriving for language school visited last week; they will maintain the old house for us to helps us look after it until the lease expires in August. They're equally handy and careful so we have no worries. We are leaving our old internet hookup for them so I'm back, overlooking the yard. Their laundry hangs on the clothesline we repaired and painted. Excellent all around.

Jambu fruit

We had our first guest Sunday as well. She arrived with fresh pastries baked by her mom. Now that's a good friend, to brave traffic from the other side of town on her motorcycle! We visited and prayed a blessing on her and her family. She took home avocados and jambu, a crisp watery red fruit from our own trees. We still have to explore the other food growing in the back.

Snakes, a resident mongoose, monkeys, and other critters live in the adjoining jungle. God watches over us all. We appreciate your prayers and partnership.
