I did not think any place on earth could be so infested with mosquitos, heat and humidity. But, our team adjusted to it well. Sunday and Monday, the first days we were here I already started missing my family. I felt like everything I did was wrong and I thought I could never get it right. I was lagging behind everyone. I could not find my stuff. The think I was shocked about was even though things were not going well for me, I felt totally at peace. I stood on the verse in Psalm 46 – “The Lord Almighty is with us” and Psalm 57 – “I will take refuge in him at all times.” I’m in the swing of things now and actually enjoy it. Our team is so cool and passionate about God and missions. I never will regret coming.
