I still can't get over...

...that it hailed here today. I have to keep reminding myself that I'm not in Minnesota; I'm in Africa. And it hailed. Weird! Although it was only small, pea sized hail, it was still very odd to see!

It rained SO HARD today. I think rainy season is here. Yayyy! Here are a few photos...

[See the white specks? Pea-sized hail! It obviously melted pretty quickly.]

Praise the Lord for so much rain!

Jake and I started Swahili lessons on Monday. We have two hours of class in the morning [8:45-10:45], and two hours of class in the evening [5:00-7:00]... Monday through Friday, for 6-8 weeks. Probably 8. Haha. Our instructor's name is Jacken... he is a good teacher and a VERY patient man! It's definitely easier than it was on the first day, but it's still by no means easy. Must... study... more...

We got a package in the mail the other day from Jane and 3rd/4th grade AWANA girls from our church! My mom also added a few things that we needed, which was really appreciated. It was very sweet to read through the booklets that the girls made for us, full of stickers, Bible verses, and things about themselves. The Jolly Ranchers, brownie mix, coffee... so thoughtful! [Jane, we'll be sending a letter for you to read to the class! THANK YOU!]

There are only a few students here right now... most of them are still away for the break. I'm excited for them to come back... it's too quiet here without them!

Please be praying for us as we discern whether or not we will be returning to Africa after this year or not. We both want to be open to hearing what God is saying to us, and where He is calling us; putting aside the selfish desires of what WE want... regardless of how much we miss home.

That's all for now... :]
