The Move

My long silence from the blog is sort of over. Will I be posting? Yes. Will I post often? I don’t think so. Things of substance? Probably not, but do I have some stories to tell. Between the lost UHAUL truck, break down and abandonment, posh hotel room and breakfast, Niagara falls of coolant, heat at full blast on 90 degree day, moving in with the sweltering heat, and then the vast array of home improvement projects, I have more than enough to keep me typing.

“Benin, located in West Africa, is one of the poorest countries in the world. although it is free from war, it is largely dominated by witchcraft and voodoo… and although the land is rich in cotton, the nature of the international market has left the people of Benin with little hope of economically profiting from their cotton.” Sounds like a country that needs prayer and the Gospel.

< %image(20050619-motion.jpg|94|126|motion)%> We have been on the move lately in our area, and will literally be moving in less than a week. I’d like to just chronicle some of these roamings and ramble on some items that I have been chewing on. There has been so much motion lately that I have really needed to just sit down.
