Today was a very exhausting, emotional, busy and HOT day. We started off by making a trip to the street market to pick up food for the elderly we were going to be visiting, and OH MY was that ever an experience! It can't easily be described in words. It was packed full with people, animals of all sorts, piles of vegetables, fruits, rice, drinks, and everything else anyone could think of to try and sell. We followed closely and quickly behind Wilson (our translator) on a very, very tiny path. After we purchased some water, rice and beans, we headed on yet another bumpy, hilly, windy ride.

All of our 4 visits humbled us beyond words. The living conditions consisted of basically one room with a bed. Hot, stifling, and dirty. Yet, they smile. They sing praises. They are so thankful for our visit. We sing with them, pray with them, and rub lotion on their dry skin.

It was great to end the day with a shower (we are spoiled.....they get NO BREAK from the heat) and some great worship along with many laughs from FanFan. Our time here is getting shorter, and we are not ready for it to be over.
