We have our luggage!!! It came Sunday afternoon, and I'm so glad!
Things are going very well here. We had a good day of hard work. Rich (the missionary) had hoped we would finish painting the 1st floor by the end of the week - and we're already started on the 2nd floor! I'm thinking we can finish painting the entire 3 floors before Saturday - and with the electrical being finished this week as well, the Bolivian Hope Center (orphanage for children currently living in a local prison with their moms) should be ready for furniture!
On a personal note, when I first visited in January 08, I met a girl by the name of Anai. She became my friend for the day. The next day when I went to the prison, she was gone! I had heard that sometimes children are forced to leave the prison for various reasons. I was worried she was lost. Then, when I came back in May, I had hoped to see her - but did not. She is one child I had been praying for specifically since I first met her. Well, SHE WAS THERE TODAY! I was so happy to see her. She was surprised that I remembered her name. I had the missionary tell her that I had been praying for her and that I had a picture of her that I had kept. I told her I would continue to pray for her - but - just seeing her today has made my entire week!

Hey, here's Episode 2 of the Rob & Tim Show. The audio went out on 2 occasions for unknown reasons (maybe cuz I'm technically challenged!), but - I don't think there was any way we could re-create what we did, so, I'm posting it as is (don't worry - the audio you're missing doesn't leave out any pertinent information other than our 'good-bye's at the end).
in between bites & sips ...
thanks for stopping by! here's where i put various thought, quotes or stories. most will be brief, some may be extended - but all will be somehow connected to my world. enjoy your stay!
