I must just be out of the habit of blogging. My lack of posting certainly hasn’t been because there hasn’t been anything going on because there’s always something going on. But until I get back in the swing of things, I’ll try to just give you little posts more frequently.
Yesterday was an interesting day. As Russ explained, we are currently having “technical difficulties” at church. So yesterday’s worship was low-tech. We printed up song sheets and set up the chairs in the corner of our main room right beside the doors. (We thought about meeting in the lobby but it was just too hot!) We had a flashlight available for taking to the bathroom. Alicia and I kept the kids in the center of the room the whole time. I think it was too hot for them to sit and focus. So instead we colored and made fans. I asked one of the little boys to give the fan that he had made to “someone older”, thinking he would take it to at least one of our middle aged people, if not someone elderly, to help with the heat. But Jean had his own idea and he gave it to Heather, the intern! (Sorry, Heather, I forgot to tell you that yesterday!)
We hope that we will have power by next Sunday but we’re really not sure. I feel a little bad for Heather and Laura since this is their last week with us. I guess, though, that this is a pretty realistic way to end an internship. Sometimes life is like this and you have to make do in less than ideal circumstances!
