We have arrived in Ouagaoudou, Burkina Faso with Missionary Keith Shumaker. We arrived at about 2:30 AM and have been in bed until about 9 am Africa time. That was after getting into bed at about 4:00 am. This is a miracle as those who know John will figure out. I supposed that he would get up at 4:30 as usual but he wimped out and slept almost like a normal human–that is between 5 and 5.5 hours.
The man at the immigrations desk really liked me. He made me fill out the paper work like 3 times. He asked me if I knew how to read. I have filled out papers all over the world. John’s papers were like my original papers and his were fine but I think the man must have thought I was cute–he made me stand there for maybe 10 minutes. When I got finally through John had all of our bags and was waiting.
I think this is going to be one of those exciting trips. This morning started off with a nice cold shower! Nothing like that to get you going in the morning. God wants me to appreciate all the small things He does for me.
We are excited about being here with the Shumaker family. We had a great time with our missionary friends in Morocco! There will be some posts from the Our Generation Radio as soon as I am able to get them up so please stay tuned.
Pray for us that God will use us and work in our lives here. Please pray for all the activities and ministries of Vision this week and be in your place doing your part for the great kingdom of our God.
