A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words
Remember my serious lack of posting in December and January? Did you notice how I often talked about being tired? I was. For very good reason!
As a missionary, I must live in two different cultures. In my home culture, I would announce certain things right away; in my adopted culture, I cannot announce anything. In my home culture, people would offer their enthusiastic congratulations and ask all kinds of questions; in my adopted culture people will start calling me "old lady" and asking if I've been eating too much fufu. In my home culture, people might rub my belly and ask my due date; in my adopted culture people just look at my belly and smile. It will tell them all they need to know.
We are now over half way through this portion of our newest adventure. Lord willing, it will be completed sometime after our arrival in the States for furlough. You'll just have to wait and see!
