I am sitting in a cybercafe in Conakry. There is no power so the cafe is running a generator. In fact, we only have six to twelve hours of electricity a day. Our refrigerator can barely keep stuff cold. There is no washing machine, so Billie does the laundry by hand. When it’s dry, we have to let it sit for three days before we wear it so all the fly eggs hatch and die first instead of burrowing into our skin. We have no fans, even though it is quite hot and humid. We live in a house compound with an African couple, a short-term missionary from Canada, two dogs, two cats, three kittens, and a few toads and lizards. We must filter all water before we drink it. When we travel, we go by taxi. The taxis here carry six passengers at a time. All these things make life very interesting and a bit difficult at times. Still, we are enjoying ourselves because we are right where God wants us doing what he wants us to do. The next time we are in the U.S., life will seem quite boring by comparison. What a joy it is to serve the Lord!
