Has it really been over a month since I last posted?! I kept waiting for something "BIG" to happen but then I remembered that God isn't only about the big things. We have a magnet on our refrigerator that says, "God wants to be a part of every little bitty, teeny tiny, itsy bitsy thing in your day." So this blog will be about several of those random bits of our life here - all those little things that God cares about :)
A couple of weeks ago the Sunday School program held a yard sale. People from the church donated used clothing, toys, and household items; then we sold them along with homemade cookies and empanadas. We made a little over $100 and are excited to purchase some much-needed supplies for the kids with this money!
Emily and I decided to try on some of the donated items while we were setting up the sale :)
The praise is that, however slowly, they are fitting in here. An interesting piece of the Paraguayan culture that Landon has already picked up is a love for terere. Terere is a popular herbal drink made with ice-cold water. Drinking terere is often used to share and chat with friends or to meet new people. Our 4040s use it an evangelistic tool :)
