Did you think I abandoned the blog? It has been crazy busy here lately and just haven't had the time to catch up.

First we took a trip to our assignment location, PKU, in Macchiato. (I need to come up with a clever name for the city just haven't done it yet!) We had a great time staying at the home of our team members and stayed busy looking at the work at our training center, our farm, our orphanage and hearing about the new "business starts". We also priced furniture and appliances...YIKES...."mahal sekali!!" (very expensive) Anyway I don't have a ton of great pictures but it gives you an idea of where we will be and some other tidbits I added just for fun! After the trip we are even more excited to finish language school and get started on the next step! And by the way, if I haven't told you, it's on the equator and it is stinking hot there, all year round, sweat will be my closest companion, like it our not!

I would also like to ask you to lift up a little boy by the name "Dito". He is a precious little boy who was adopted by the family of the national worker who runs the orphanage. He has been sick for several months and has not been able to eat and drinks very little, he was extremely thin. Since we returned from PKU we found out that he has been diagnosed with TB. Please lift up that he is able to keep his medicine down and that the CEO would comfort the family during this time. Happy Valentine's Day!!
