I’ve officially been here for three weeks now. It sometimes feels like it’s been an eternity. I’ve been sick again today with a high temperature. I hate this sickness thing. It’s really hard to work and I can’t be very effective. I really want to overcome it so that I can go to work with full heart.
One good thing that did happen today was that I had my first personal OYM. I talked with a man on the jeepney coming back to our apartment. I talked with him about his job etc and then invited him to church. It felt great. I didn’t understand all of what he said but he understood me and was surprised that I’d only been here three weeks. I was really happy after that.
Tonight in our work we visited Judy and had a good talk with her. I’m really impressed at how strong she is. She fed us dinner and I ate a lot. This was a problem because when we went to visit Maple she fed us too. I was really really full. We ate piranha. It was very good tasting.
