Food for thought....
Well, it is hard to believe almost another week has gone by. We are so excited because this next week my parents and my uncle and aunt are coming to see us!!! But more exciting than that, David is finally coming, too. He will get to be with us for the last weeks we are here. I was looking at Matthew this week and noticed how skinny he has become. I feel so bad, the food has been one of the most difficult areas for us. I love my kids and know that they have sacrificed a lot being here serving God. So, last night, I took my two kids down town to eat at a restaurant that serves American food. We had a wonderful time together and just enjoyed a small taste of home. As we left, we grabbed an ice cream bar across the street and started walking to catch a motokar back home. On the corner, there was a man looking at our bag of left overs, asking if we could please give him the food. Of course, we handed it over(sorry Jess) and also the little bit of ice cream we had left on the stick. He grabbed it all greedily and left to eat. Just then a little girl came over and asked for food. Unthinkingly, I told her that we had just given our food away. It wasn't until minutes later, sitting in the motokar, that I realized that I should have just taken her to a little place and bought her some food. Forgive me, Lord, for not thinking quick enough! We left down town a little more pensive and thoughtful about those who are in such need around us. Here are some more pictures of what we have been doing this week...
