What an amazing blessing already!  I have been so amazed at the hospitality from these wonderful people!  They are just so happy to be able to  serve us-and we are here to serve them!!!

One thing that really touched me was early this morning I heard someone out the window murmuring.  I looked out the window to see a wonderful man of God walking around the outside of the church praying.  Not only did it touch me, because I am truly not a city girl, and despite that, I have felt no fear in this city.  I truly feel protected here at this church where they love and trust the Lord so dearly.  It also humbled me realizing that these people have been praying for us before we ever arrived to their church!  I believe we are the ones so blessed!

In Christ’s love, Kellee

Day 1

Day 1 of my captivity. My only grasp at maintaining my sanity is this blog as my being is drained out of me by about twenty teens run wild. Well, we got here safely in four vehicles and after some organizing and rearranging of rooms, we are well established. The boys room together downstairs on the ground floor and the girls have their own room upstairs. There are two showers upstairs, one for each gender and so far, everyone seems to be getting along. Well, we’ll see if that continues through the end of the week. Today, the teens had much difficulty in getting up at seven o clock, but once we were up, we went downstairs in the basement kitchen to indulge in breakfast and chat. I believe there is a service in another language at eleven and one in english at three. I suppose I will just mouth along with the songs in the other language. Today is mostly for preparing for an extensive week of VBS (Vacation Bible School), which includes setting up shops on the outside lawns and serving breakfast and lunch to neighborhood children. Well, that’s it for today. Oh, wait, their is one more thing. There are two smoke detectors located in the church and they beep about every thirty seconds, I hope that we get new batteries for them today so that falling asleep will be easier. But batteries or no batteries, I don’t believe the beeping or the voices will stop in my head. And a man who works at the church call Shean my Dad, so we’re going to have fun with that. Thanks for reading, I’ll blog again soon telling about how the Lord has blessed us and them, I know we will be blessed because the people are very hospitable here.

In His name,
