Talked with Brian last night and things aren’t going as well as they’d like. First off, a couple have been pretty sick. Brian’s not feeling so hot himself, but he’s hoping if he drinks more water today, he’ll start feeling better. It was hotter yesterday, too, than it had been, so I think the heat took them off-guard.
The main problem, though, is with all the wood. They ordered 100 pieces of wood at 120cm. They got 120 pieces of wood at 100cm! Then, they got wood that was 4m instead of 5m. Then, the posts that were laid for the second building before they got there are 2 feet out of square. So, they have a lot of work to do to try to fix things. A lot of dealing with local vendors and readjusting plans. Please pray for them; it was a little discouraging yesterday. They’re also really tired, so that doesn’t help.
Today begins the missions conference (I thought it began tomorrow, but it doesn’t). So, they’re actually leaving the property at 4 to make the 2-hr trip back to the house, then they’ll be at the house long enough to shower and leave for the missions conference. They won’t be eating dinner til they get home from the conference, which could be pushing 11pm. So, pray for endurance!! And Brian wondered why I sent medicine and crackers with him! 😉
