Rich Benjamin has been staying with us for the last couple weeks and it's been awesome. We took him today to go meet up with some of his other contacts here. He will be traveling around with them for a little while but then hopefully back with us till he leaves back for New York. It has felt like he is a part of the staff. So we took him over to the Coconut Hotel to meet his friends, and so we ate lunch there. The hamburger that I had tasted veeeeery good. I would totally go back there for another one sometime, haha. After that, Bmb, Autumn, and I went over to Cite Soleil to sort through medication. It wasn't too big of a task, we just had to do some organizing. With the three of us, we knocked it out pretty quick. It felt good to be out and doing something useful again. It was the first time I had ridden in the back of a tap-tap since last Sunday, which was the night that I got sick. It was weird, because as I was hearing all the little kids shout out "hey you!" as we drove by, I realized that I actually missed that.
When we got back from Cite Soleil, I realized that we didn't bring back our jugs of the purified water for our drinking water here. It was kind of a bummer, so we had to get right back into the tap-tap and tell him we had to go right back. I felt bad. As we were heading down our rode though, several kids were walking home from school here, and had to go all the way over to Cite Soleil. So we had them jump in. It was awesome, and we both realized immediately that God planned it. We had this tap-tap full of happy little kids that had to walk about a mile, but we picked them up. It made the ride pretty enjoyable. So that was a cool thing.
We have been trying to get into the Christmas season, so Bmb and I have been doing some light decorating. Nathan had some Christmas lights sent down, and he let us have a strand of them. We put them up tonight in our room, and it just makes me feel good, haha. We also made some little ornaments made out of the shiny pipe cleaner things. They are suppose to be made into little snowflakes. We made some snowflake looking ones and then some star looking ones. We have them also hanging from our ceiling. I like it
