Got an email from the youth leader from Panama.
I’m going to c/p it here. (protecting the names, of course)
Greetings from Panama! Our trip has been great so far and we are all looking forward to finishing out our time well and seeing our famlies. Daily each of us are being challanged and depending on the Holy Spirit! We have got a lot of projects accomplished and also had the opportunity to love on the people that we are around.
Just to highlight each member:
M is seeing patience and helped with stitches
B is seeing patience and oraganizing the clinic
R has done a great job with tutoring and crafts
H has welded and painted
S is doing mechanical work (mostly on a massive trailer)
The boy is currentely digging and grading dirt(I want to know if he is doing this manually, or has he acquired some sort of heavy machinery~~regardless, I am quite sure he is in the absolute height of fun)
D is digging and a great assistant to us adults
B worked on trailer fabrication, electical and supervising projects
Thank you so much for all of your prayers and support! We could not be doing what we are doing without you! We will be arriving home on Saturday about 3am. I would say that the best part of our trip so far is our time sitting on the pourch at night taking in the view and sharing in each others lives!!!! And as it relates to serving <I believe we would all agree that going to the school and delicing and loving on those kids was AWSOME!!!! We love you and thank you for everything!
Bad segue back to me….
I generally do about 12-14 loads of laundry a week. This just barely keeps me from being avalanched by Mt. Washmore.
Since the boy left on Thursday, and Superman early Saturday (he will be gone till the end of the month) I have one 1 load of laundry. One. And we had to scrounge for that one.
This means that the females in this house only generate 1/12th-1/14th of the laundry.
I think we need to go shopping.
