These last couple months we have been scrambling to pack up stuff to send to the field. We got word that they were sending a shipping container which is about 1/3 the cost. We have been gooing through all our kitchen and household items that we have had packed away since before training, sorting things, and then repacking them to send and stay. Whew! who knew we had so much stuff! 🙂 We have been ordering the “old fashioned” equipment we will need for the field such as a heavy duty manual egg beater (have you ever tried beating egg whites with no electricity?), stove top toaster and stove top waffle cooker (gotta have those!). Since we are shipping, we’ve gotten some of the toiletries and whatnot that are harder to get in Africa. Fred Meyer half price sock sale anyone?
