We were reminiscing the other day about the contrast of the places we have lived. The last seven months we have been in Wichita, KS. A half block from us there is a Lowe’s Home Improvement store and just down from there is a Target. Walmarts and grocery stores abound..
During the five years we lived among the Yanomami people everything we purchased was brought in by small plane. The closest store may have been some 300 miles over mountains, rivers and through dense jungle. As you may imagine, we didn’t run to the store when we were needing cool whip or chocolate chips.
The Lord has helped us adjust and be content in every place we have lived and we thank Him for the many opportunities to serve Him.
