Has been a nice and restful day. It is a real bummer when you can sleep in but you wake up early. I could have, theoretically, slept until noon but I was up at 8. Did a few things and got on the computer. Called Jean Claude and asked how his pain was doing. He said it was a ‘bit better’ which tells me he is still in a lot of pain. He is going to the hospital on Monday to get an X-ray. I hopped a machine and went to a store to buy a few things. Got myself smiling again! As I have said in the past; why would anyone intentionally take a taxi when a machine is available? Coming back the driver needed to get some petrol. It amazes me as to the fact that they generally buy a small amount. When he tried to ‘kick-start’ the bike, it didn’t want to oblige. He worked and worked and worked but finally it started and we made it with no problems. This morning I finished my PPT that I will share with the brethren in Copperas Cove, TX on Nov 13. They have been a faithful supporter for at least 15 years. I then climbed another bike to go to my favorite restaurant. Once I was there I called Jean Claude and he gave them my order. I brought it back to the hotel and watched an episode on The Rockford Files. I then worked on three preacher reports. Then I wrote an article that is supposed to appear next month in a French Mission Newsletter. Doyle Kee has been a missionary in Geneva for many decades and a great crusader for the French world. He asked if I could write something about the work in Cameroon and I was happy to do so. I then worked on a sermon I will preach next month. I was able to Skype with Linda. This afternoon two little boys that she used to babysit will come over along with our grandson Cy. They will go someplace to eat and play. I have been preparing for my departure on Tuesday. That may seem like a long way away but it never fails; on the day of my departure I am still hustling to get everything done.
Let me explain the two pictures below:
The one on the left is in the Logpom Church Hall. They have 3 fans like the one you see here. Fortunately, they only have 1 clock. Personally, I believe that when you enter a church building your phone and watch should be confiscated and there should be no clocks on the walls. The one on the right is to give me some sympathy. As you can see; this mission work is hard stuff! The items are sitting on my nice fridge.
Tomorrow I will worship with Jean Claude’s congregation and I am excited about that. Thanks for your continued prayers.
