God is good

Sorry no amazing African tales to tell after a particuarly varied day for me. I woke feeling quite flat and daunted by the fact that the boys were now at school it was time for me to be useful. But how was this to be and what form would it take? After a visit to the nursing school yesterday that left me with more questions than answers I was feeling a little down...alright  alot down. After pouring my heart out in an email home I took a long walk with Rob then returned and plunged into the Psalms. I was reminded there that doing God's work will sometimes mean waiting patiently. While we wait we can love and serve others and tell others about him.

Sure enough as I waited patiently for the Lord he turned and heard my cry, He lifted me up out of the pit out of the mud and the mire, he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear and put there trust in the Lord. Psalm 40:1-3

So I returned to the nursing school with a new heart and now I have a task to focus on..I am going to be the nursing school librarian and through that I can orgainse and catalogue the small library they have, plus be available to students to drop by for assistance. I will also prepare some short inservices to present to the students on clinical placement. Polepole I will find my place just as God has willed it, patiently I will await His wisdom and guidance.

Please continue to pray for both Rob and I as we try to find our place in Murgwanza, which is being made more challenging due to the absence of long termers, pray that we will continue to lean on the Lord for guidance. Praise God that each day we meet new people who want to talk with us and practice their English and in turn help us with our Swahili.

Also no power outage tonight!! Sas
