June! Summer. Long days. I moved into the new room on June 1st. The sleeping is preeeeetty good. Five big windows and a high ceiling are key. I'm so glad we added the extra foot or two up above my head. :) The front porch is fabulous. It's great in the mornings (I can watch the sun come up over some trees and a hill). It's great in the evenings and nights.
One thing I realized late one night: My house doesn't have a hiding place. The windows are so big and spaced out around the house that there is no place to be in the house w/o being somewhat exposed to the outside...the windows are high enough that people could only see in if they made an extra effort to do so, but still. You always try to outsmart thieves and criminals. I'm working on a plan to create a 'safety zone' inside the house.
I had a touch of malaria, I think. I had the fever and dramatic head-ache, but then it went away so quickly. The dreariness and fatique did hang around for about 4 days. Either way, I regretted missing my anti-malaria medicine the week before I got the fever. Hind sight, you know.
Only one month and a few days from Launch Day...July 17th. I'm ready for all practical purposes. Just a matter of waiting until the day arrives. We've yet to hear from the IRS as to our tax-exempt status. Hopefully that'll fall into place this month. The steel buildings are still in the US. Here's hoping they come to Haiti ASAP...H!
In Mark, Jesus talks about how the people of Nazareth (Jesus' hometown) let what little they knew about Jesus hang them up. They couldn't get around the bits of info they had about him in order to come to belief. Don't let what you know about Him (or have heard about Him) hold you back. Get to know Him personally!
