It has been one of those weeks when.... well, it goes like this.
*Water pump starts leaking water...back yard is is a muddy mess. In turn, the pump won't shut off like it should, so we have to go without water until Daniel is able to make a new seal to fix it.
*Few days later....I wake up, walk down the hall into a puddle of water. The children's bathroom is completely flooded. Something broke and oh what a mess.
*Next day...Rebekah flushes the potty and water comes up into the shower drain. Sewage is all blocked up. Turns out a chunk of cement from the sewage box in the street broke off, fell in, and blocked the pipe. My poor, sweet hubby...I was already feeling so bad for all the extra fix it work he was having to do, but this....100 + degrees, humid, a very stinky, messy, long couple days of digging to repair. He still has a ways to go...the older boys got the joy of helping in this project too! :)
*Internet keeps going down and then we have no phone either...I want to ask people to pray!
*Yesterday....We load up the van with hymnals, Bibles, a few chairs and guitar. We are heading out the the village of Jesus Maria where Daniel is going to preach the gospel. We make it about half way there and the van overheats... it is leaking water everywhere...something broke...Daniel just looks and me and smiles.
We find one house, but they have no water to spare. We make it back to the main road and Daniel and Bro. Macario hitchhike back to town (about 20 miles away). It was hot, we had no water (we used our drinking water to get the van back to the main road), but we did have chairs, a guitar, and even a tree for shade...well, it's a tree in these parts at least. So we sat down, sang, and waited.
Daniel picked us up and then went back to figure out how to get the van home...he finally found someone to tow him home and walked in about 11 pm. Needless to say, we didn't get to go out to the village.
We know that Satan does not want the gospel preached.
We know that everything that happens to us is allowed by the hand of our Heavenly Father.
2Ch 20:12 "... for we have no might against this great company that cometh against us; neither know we what to do: but our eyes are upon thee."
May we continue to be made into His image and may the gospel reach the hearts of the many, many here who have no hope.
Thank you for interceding for us and the poeple here.

Waiting in the van for Daddy to come back
It got too hot, so outside to wait.
