How much can you get done in 4 hours before church?

A week ago Sunday I went into hyper-drive to get things done before church started at 11 a.m.  I got up at 0700 a.m. thinking I would have a leisurely cup of tea and do some internet before breakfast.  Within 2 minutes there was a call to get to the hospital for a C/Section.  I had 2 coming for breakfast at 0900! I took one, Julie, with me to help with the C/Section! I rushed home by 8:20 a.m. and got the coffee perking and started breakfast.  Got a load of wash in the washer and ran to get a shower and dressed for church.  By 9 a.m. I had breakfast on the table as my guests came strolling in! After breakfast I started peeling carrots, got the chicken ready and in the oven and started cooking the potatoes and carrots.  Since church is not usually over until 1 p.m. I need to have lunch ready to warm when we get home. I ran to get the clothes hung on the line so they could be drying during church.  Then I ran inside to get a cake in the oven since our Bible College students, teacher an…

We went into withdrawal when our Internet service went off on the 8th of May through the 18th of May!  We enjoyed having nothing to do for several days, but then knew when it came back we would be busy--catching up! Praise the Lord we got it sorted out with a new company and we are back on line! Last weekend on Friday the 13th our surgeon from Harare came with Dr. Kajese and his wife and baby and we started surgeries at 9:20 p.m. and went until 1:45 a.m. and then they came for dinner.  We went to bed at 2:30 a.m. and up by 6 a.m. Saturday to get started at 7 a.m.  They went all day until 4:00 p.m.  They did 11 cases! They left and we made up the beds in the guesthouse for the next visitors who arrived 2 hours later, Paul and Melanie Fudge from Florida and Dr. Kris Singh from Florida.  Paul and Melanie have been here several times and they are teaching for 3 months at the Bible College in Harare.  Kris is their Dentist and goes to their church.  They invited him to come and work at Ch…

Out of the country and in

On the 28th of April Major and daughter Carolyn and visitor Julie and I flew from Harare to Johannesburg, South Africa to meet up with Major's son Michael who was on a 10 day break from school after finals (which he passed--yeah!).  He met us at the airport and we all took off in a rental car--first stop Pretoria. We met up with Carolyn Hall and husband Russ McFarlane in Pretoria--our friends who visited us just before Easter with their 3 children at Chidamoyo.  Carolyn showed us around her CDC office and we enjoyed a lunch with prawns--wow, something we never get in our land locked country! We took off after lunch for a 2 hour drive to the western boarder of South Africa to Sun City--the Las Vegas of South Africa.  We stayed in a time share resort that had water slides, putt-putt (miniature golf), pool table and ping pong--something we all enjoyed and a 5 minute ride to the gates of Sun City. We went one day to Sun City to see the beautiful Wave pool, get lost in a stone maize, …
