Hi! Hi! I know I have been 'posting' on the blog but I wrote those posts a while ago so I wanted to write a life lately post and check in with everyone!
Last time I updated everyone on what we were up to we were in Thailand getting ready to come back to Myanmar. Well, we are back in Myanmar and have been here for over two weeks now.
I was a bit nervous about coming back but overall the transition went just fine. We got to Myanmar Sunday evening and my good friend from Kansas, Alisha, flew in on Monday morning.
We spent about two weeks showing her life in Myanmar and it was so fun! I’m so thankful that Alisha came to visit. She is one of my closest friends and being able to share life with her, visit and pray with her was a huge blessing.
Dave, Alisha and I went up to Inle Lake for a few days and saw life there. Many of the people live on houses right on top of the water. They have floating markets on the water and much more. It was beautiful and one of the most unique ways of life I have ever seen people live.
Alisha left last weekend and lets just say I was super sad. I had no idea I’d be so emotional about her leaving but I definitely was. God knows what I need because Dave was really nice and the next morning some of the ladies from church got together to have tea, visit and pray together. It was a huge encouragement.
My office! We turned a bedroom into an office and I'm loving it!
Last week we had a terrible wind storm and it blew part of the mango tree down at school. They put the green mangoes in bags to ripen and they for sure did! We peeled and sliced them and had 45 cups of mangoes! We made cakes, pies, muffins and soon we will make jam and smoothies!
School starts beginning of June so I'm starting to get my classroom ready. I'll have 18 four year olds. =)
What have you been up to lately? What has been a blessing to you these past few weeks?
Do you have an office to work from in your house?
Do you want to come and visit me so you can eat mangoes? (Please say yes!)
