Life lately has been crazy, overwhelming, spontaneous, busy and amazing.
Each day is completely different and has its own set of challenges and it’s own beautiful moments where your heart wants to explode because it can’t handle how GREAT God is. I am learning more and more and more about what it means to trust God. To truly acknowledge that His ways are higher than ours, and that His thoughts are higher than ours. Even when you are faced with bad situations where things seem to be impossible. I am learning more about love from the children this past month. These children have an amazing ability to love, and to show love after they have been mistreated and could easily become cold and angry. Yet they love because they have come to know they are home, and that they are safe. Each child inspires me, because I see their resilience, and I see how they refused to be denied a great future.
I am getting used to the power going out multiple times a day. The inconsistent wifi, hence my lack of blogging. I have killed more bugs in this week than every before. It amazes me how I am able to do this without screaming 😉 I have gotten used to all crazy things about my new life in Africa, and I have been loving it. I have given up on blow drying my hair, and wash my laundry by hand:) The frogs at night, the daily visits from our neighbours goats and chickens. The fact that the kids like to give me corn rows everyday! Teaching them how to read and watching them get excited about learning, it has been so great. Except the rooster that starts in about 2:30 am, on the dot. I mean how does he do that!
I said I would be posting about the dedication week, but I haven’t gotten time and my time I do have is never enough to fully describe what that week meant to me. So I will share with you the video that was created during this week, so you can see with your eyes what Project Nyame Nsa is all about! Here is the link, grab a cup of coffee, sit back relax and enjoy!
