Generating Good Thoughts

Yes while you were brewing your coffee, turning on every light in the house, watching the morning news, brushing your teeth with flowing water I was trying to figure out how I could power my laptop to write you a note! Let me tell you it is not a cake walk here in the south of Ethiopia. I am now 4 full days without power and water. But God has given me the grace to love camping! Even if it is in my own apartment. I am using solar panels to charge my cell phone & rechargeable batteries to power my flashlights at night.

For my dinners I use my propane tank & stove to cook it up. ┬áToday I needed desperately to use this computer so I pulled out my generator, filled it with oil & fuel & it started generating power! Needless to say it also generated good thoughts in this brain of mine. I am headed into the bush this week so please pray for safety & fruitful meetings with locals. I’m ecstatic to see all of our new brothers & sisters in Christ.

I would also like to mention that my aunt Mary made these beautiful scarves & when my neighbors saw them they fell in love! Looks like I will be parting with most of them. I caught a snapshot before they ran away with them!

These ladies have helped me to get healthy everytime I have come down with “something” – you world travellers know what I mean! They will never know how much they have helped me. They are a definite gift from God.

Goodnight All!

Chow!

    Carrie, I was so touched by your mission from God, and I thank you for your prayers over me this morning. I’m the 73 yr old that you prayed over my lungs and my Son Chris who is homeless and lost for now. I wish I was younger and able to go with you, “I will be their in spirit!” I will continue to pray for you and the people you are Blessing, I know God smiles down on you. Stay Blessed sweet Sister in CHRIST.
