bon voyage

Posted by on July 30, 2008

Brookley is gone.  We are sad.  She left today with the team, and her departure was just as dramatic as our arrival.  Last night the team went to the airport only to find out that the air traffic controllers across West Africa are on strike and their plane would not be leaving.  Such is life here (although this is actually a very rare thing).  Today Brent, Dave and Saber are driving the team to Ouagadogo where Air France have negotiated a flight out.

We are definitley sad to see the team go, but it will be nice to have a few low key days.  Krystal, who will be living with us, is staying at the Teagues this week to help Shelley and Beki prepare for youth camp.  So, the boys and I will be at home alone much of this week.  This is a very good thing because Sam is now sick with the fever that I had two weeks ago and we all have upper respritory infections.  Life on the go has taken its toll.  He’s on medicine now and much more himself than he was yesterday.  When the fever started we took him stright to the dr for medicine.

Dave and Brent are spending the night in Ouaga tonight and will return tomorrow, but then they’re going to Maduwa to prepare for the construction team that arrives in two weeks.  On Monday youth camp starts and will last one week.  Then the following Monday a contruction team arrives and will be here for two weeks.  They will be spending probably half their trip building a church at Maduwa which is in the eastern part of the country.

So, that’s our life in a nutshell.  There’s not a whole lot to report on the boys because we’ve been spending so much time away from the home.  Nathaniel, my little star, rolled over for the first time last week.  I have some pictures of them that Ashley of Sam took while the team was here.  I will try to add them to this post tonight, but right now we’re going to the pool.  🙂
