Charles and I recently had the chance to spend a little time with family in his home village. It was nice to see everyone again, now as a married couple. I had the opportunity to cook a chicken dinner with my sisters-in-law. Did I mention that I have 5 sisters now! Chickens go from the yard to the dinner table in an hour or so and we cleaned them together. Normally, the kids catch the chicken first. Second, thankfully, a man in the family cuts the throat. Third, you dip it in boiling water before plucking out the feathers. Then, well you can imagine the rest. I am beginning to prefer fresh chicken to the packaged hormone-injected version in the states. We also had a great time with our church family, the people who taught Charles during his early Christian life. We participated in a training session with them where we discussed how to teach Bible lessons. It is beautiful here. This time of year it is always entertaining to sit outside and watch all the animals running about. They let them graze freely until time to plant the rice again, in July. I never knew pigs liked to run so much! And the cows thought that the roads were put there for them! They have no fear of cars. We also had some serious discussions about God since many in our family are not believers. Please pray that the Holy Spirit will help them understand the truth of the Gospel and that we will be faithful witnesses for our Lord. We love them very much and long to share our lives together as believers.
