Prayer Request

I have no idea who is still reading this blog. It is always so weird to post from email out here in the jungle and have no idea if it even makes it or not. I also get really embarrassed when I come back to town and see that for some reason all the punctuation turns into weird diamond boxes with question marks in them. So...sorry about that.

Anyway, I am starting to stress a little about getting my girls school books by our next chopper flight at the end of June. We were recently told that there is some issue with the mail in Wewak, and I have no idea when it will be fixed. Our next chopper flight is tentatively scheduled for October,and although my kids would be thrilled, but we would be really behind if we had to wait until then.

We are actually still doing school now due to house building and coming out of tribe in the Spring. There is only so much weight we can carry on our flights in and out of the tribe, so it is usually a choice between the books and Mia, and well, our offspring always wins out.

I am also wondering how well school will go this year since I will be teaching two kids instead of one...yet another reason why I don't want to start off behind. Who knows how long it will take to get two kids educated all the while trying to learn a tribal language, and wrangle a toddler at the same time. Are you praying for me right now? I hope so. Are you also praying that my kids won't be illiterate? Me too.

So there is it. I would truly appreciate those prayers from whoever is still reading this! Thanks for hanging in there with me!
