Today we told my site mate’s counterpart and girls that he was moving districts. They were certainly all sad and I don’t know the girls’ reactions to me helping, but the counterpart is willing to help me. I already knew she would be, though! She is very active in her community and will be helpful as I take over projects that my site mate and I had planned to do together. I will just need to continue to take a day at a time.
I messaged a Christian friend of mine about some things I had been wondering about. Her response was so encouraging! She also told me I needed to read 1 Peter. I began to read the first chapter in the NLT version and was blown away. It says “This letter is from Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ. I am writing to God's chosen people who are living as foreigners…” This phrase certainly resonated with me! I haven’t completed reading it yet, but so far it seems to answer everything I have been wondering about. My thoughts and revelations will come in another post.
I am going back to site tomorrow as camp finished today. PC has said we can be sprung to leave site past our capitals soon, which is good since being at camp I was unable to do a few things only available here that I wanted to do before I left. The camp went well and I am excited to see what my “new” girls end up doing at their schools with what they learned. My plan is to have them come up and do similar things in my own VDC as well.
Transitioning back into site hopefully won’t be a problem. When I came to the city, I was in a daze for the first couple days. It’s a whole different world here than in village. I was able to see more people than I thought I would while here. All in all, it’s been good. Now that I think about things a little bit, with how disjointed my blog posts have been…maybe I am STILL in a daze! What I need is to be still and step back. I just have not been able to take the time as of yet. When I get back to site since I already have to rest my ankle - I”ll take that time and write some more blogs!
