Sunday, Monday, Tuesday....

Again, sorry it has been a few days. Not a whole lot to write about. I have been busy working on Orphan Update Reports and training EOH Volunteers, so life has been busy but somewhat uneventful, haha.

Sunday we rested, which was lovely. Mary Leslie and I spent some time at a little café which was so beautiful and we also did a bit of shopping at a market. Chelsea and Jessica K were also with us while shopping.

Monday we stayed in the office and worked. Some of the team went out and did visitations, but a few of us were not feeling well, so we took the afternoon off. I slept basically the entire day, laying down at 1:00 and sleeping until 4:45 and then going back to bed around 9:00 and sleeping until 7:00 in the morning. I have felt much better today.

Today we went out to Chongwe and visited two of the My Father’s House homes that I actually helped build last year. It is incredible to see children in them now…they look SOOOO wonderful. A little girl today just stayed by me all day today- her name is Espina and she is five. Absolutely precious.

Anyways, we helped today training EOH Volunteers who will be the teachers/translators at Camp Hope. Camp Hope is coming up in two weeks, so we are getting ready for that.

Besides our list of things we have been doing, I am spiritually growing a lot and the Lord is speaking very clearly to me. It is incredible what I have been missing in the last few months, even just not allowing my ears to be open to truly hearing Christ’s voice. It is incredible.

I love it here so much. Today we had a binge eating day, where we devoured lots of cookies and chips, and my stomach is telling me I probably shouldn’t have done that, haha.

Well anyways, if you run into my mom or dad make sure to say happy anniversary!!!! It is their 25th and that sure is a milestone. Just ask them and I’m sure they’ll tell you how incredible that is, having made it almost 20 years with me as a daughter--- hah!

Well, sorry I don’t have any incredible stories or anything super great! Know that I am thankful for your continued support and am looking forward to writing again soon!

Love and in Christ,
Soph
