Pretty sure I got dengue fever this week; but don’t worry, the nurses told me to drink water. That’s the mission joke because that’s basically the only cure they provide.
“Nurse, I have diarrhea, a fever, and a real bad headache. Also I think this lump on my arm is cancer. What should I do?”
“Are you drinking water?”
“Well, uh, maybe not as much as I should…”
“Well there’s your problem.”
It’s kinda ridiculous, but I’m just glad they gave me those parasite pills a while ago. Phewf!
So I don’t have any crazy experiences this week (or at least not any I can remember), but I have indents on my knees. I was feeling them during language study thinking, “hmmm… that’s kinda weird.” They’re from kneeling on our tile floor to pray every time we leave and enter the house. Then I thought about the impact and “indent” I want the mission to have on my heart. But how do you maintain an indent? Keep doing it. Keep praying. I don’t want the lessons I’ve learned here and the effect of the mission to leave. I sound like I’m leaving already. Psh!
I completed 5 months yesterday.
