It is barely 5 am here. My alarm clock was a screeching sound which I have still to determine it’s origination. I have one theory. Maybe it has to do with the water system that the kitchen uses. It is amazing how early they arrive. This morning it must have been between 3:30 and 4:00 am! Their entrance is very near my back window. I’ll have to become a detective to find out!
For most of the past week, our days have become rather routine. Up early, individual morning devotions, breakfast, travel to school, chapel , class, tea break, class, lunch, tea break and back in the truck to return to the AEE Guest House. Dinner is served between 7 and 7:30 at night. ( Oh, by the way, the truck that had to be grounded for a couple of days due to the fact that they had no money for fuel…is back on the road again.). We are beginning to get a program together so that Julie can experience more of Rwanda.
I am hearing news from home via FB of the terrible tornados in my homeland..South. I am eager to hear how my friends are doing. I want to get home to help them as soon as I can and at the same time I know that I need to be here to finish my task.
In class today, we will review the material of the course to help prepare. While the students have a study day tomorrow, Julie and I will go to the north to meet my Compassion International child. The travel will give Julie an opportunity to see more of the country.
I need to go for now to prepare for class. I hope to write later today of our adventure at the Post Office here!
