We made it!

After 24 hours of traveling and a straight 14 hours in a plane, we finally arrived and so did all our luggage! Praise God!
We were all so exhausted by the time we got to our host church. I had kankles for the first time in my life, walking on my feet hurt so bad, they looked like bubbles. I guess that`s what you get for only getting up twice on a 14 hour plane ride.
After not sleeping for what felt like 3 days, we got to sleep on the floor...:) And have a COLD shower.... Doesn`t all that sound so good! Anything was good to us at that point! We are thankful and feel blessed.
Everything feels so cluttered here; everywhere you look there are houses or cars. And the inside of the houses are so low and small... Everything in the house where ever you look is small, like salt shakers, cups ect. Gary said he could have finished the whole peanut butter jar on his one piece of toast, but we get to share that with our team of 11. Gary`s head also hits the door frames when walking through. I feel claustrophobic.
We go to church in 20 min. So I should get going. After church we have lunch with church members and then orientation, finishing the day with a supper with local youth. Apparently it`s a 2 hour supper where we will eat things we have never eaten before! YAY!
It was so good to connect with Jesus this morning and just be reminded of why we are here and wait to see how he will work through us.
Until next time. 
