On the road again….
Where a Cacophony of Beep-beeps are the sound of the day-all day!
Motor oil, concrete balustrades, chicken and lottery specialty shops line the way.
All sides of the road used, so no center stripes needed!
Divided One-way Interstates, except for motorcycles going the wrong way unheeded, are lined by dozens of roadside shacks all selling the same thing.
Taxi ride at night can be Interesting, where bumper to bumper and nose to nose has a whole new meaning!
Beautiful Trees and vines with yellow and orange ornamentation are enjoyed while Hot sun-filled work days are filled with sawdust, screws and insulation, Interrupted by brief respites gazing upon the beautiful layers upon layers of verdant mountains, clouds and shadows.
We come expecting to give a helping hand, when we realize it is us that is the beneficiary.
The reward is new friends, accomplishment and camaraderie wrapped in mutual respect and the love of working hard on something that is larger than ourselves.
Seeing THEIR vision and God working thru them, bringing others to Christ as their single ambition is a testament to their faith and focus on the great commission.
May we be as devoted as they, Living the gospel everyday. Shedding our trappings of prosperity for the wealth of joy and simplicity that they demonstrate easily.
Their infectious laughter and wide smiles will go with us as we travel back home, remembering them fondly for their epicurean delights, early morning coffee, warm hugs and generous hospitality.
