So apparently it has been six days since I wrote a post. I’m glad that time is starting to fly by. I know that seems like an oxymoron, but I really miss my family! As of right now, I have been here for two weeks officially and I have not been kidnapped of killed. SUCCESS!!!! Today, we are having our first rainstorm since I arrived. It is so nice. I love the rain. Especially, since yesterday it was up to 82 Fahrenheit. They don’t have central air here so it got pretty toasty. Currently, I am in my office sitting under a nice ceiling fan and life is grand. I am excited about what I feel like God is doing over here. I understand now what God wants to do in me and what He wants me to leave here. It is nice to finally have some direction in my life. At least, direction for the next two months. Isaiah says that the Lord will keep those in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Him. I am glad that I can hold to the promises of God.

Toodles, Amanda

P.S. I finally got a super comfortable mattress and I am not parting with it for anything.
