Here is the text of LaRee's note to me:
|Laying out material to measure & cut
The heat is unbearable. The humidity unreal! I was literally dripping huge droplets of water onto the sewing machines as well as the students! The kids beamed with excitement when they actually began using the machines. I had to keep taking deep breaths in order to keep myself from bursting into tears! They are so keen to learn.
Anyways, I am exhausted, mostly from the heat. I have something wrong with my eye, and am using polysporin for it. I have feet that would match yours....very swollen from the heat. But hopefully my body will adjust in a day or so.
Our sleeping arrangements are much better than we expected. I'll send photos later this evening.
I have so much to write about, but can't possibly get it all down. The food is delicious. The cook is adorable. I would like to bring her home with me (as well as all of these children)
The noise at night is CRAZY! The crickets, frogs BIG FROGS, goats, tons of ROOSTERS! I hate roosters! Dogs, horses. Mosquitoes, noseeums.
The morning worship time was heartbreaking, heart warming, and I
just know that Jesus was in that room.
Mark, it is so overwhelming. If I stop to think about the things I have seen, I would break down completely, so you just keep going, and move on.
It's getting close to supper. I will try to write more tonight.
I love you with all of my heart. LaRee"
