This past week has been busy! Our missionary friend James left us, to the sorrow of all. My little sisters even suggested that he ''give up going to Big Woods for lent." :) I can't remember if I told y'all yet, but one of the many things that happens over here is two young boys come over and we help them with school. At ages 15 and 14 they are a mixture of fun and trouble. The little kids like having two more older siblings, and Peter is enjoying more boys.
Another thing that we do here is give away food. The parish priest has been very generous and has helped us out with food. Giving us huge bags of rice, boxes of beans and such stuff. Seeing so much food, and so much need around us we came to the conclusion that God must want us to share! Right now we are preparing a couple for marriage, and the woman is about 8 1/2 months pregnant with a old year old. (Stuff like this happens a lot) She often stands all day in line at a government program to get some extra food, and often returns home empty handed. We have been overjoyed to help her out.
On Mondays, Wendsay and Fridays we go to the Parish Office to offer counseling, from 9:00 to 12:00. A lot of the times no one comes until the last hour. It is sometimes frustrating, to have people come within the last hour and not being able to spend more time with them. But God is calling us to be faithful not always successful. Something that has been on the hearts of my parents is to help start a Crisis Pregnancy Center. So many young women are left with little children with no help at all! It really is sad.
We are so blessed to have a chaple right on premise. One of the things we prayed for durring out Intake was for a chaple or church to be near by. God has blessed us SO much, and we get to have mass every morning. Life could not be better here.
