Hello everyone. It's so nice to be back in contact. We have been able to upgrade our internet service here in Jamaica and at times it seems to run a "likkle" bit faster. That's patua for "little." I'll save the Jamaican phrases for another post.
We have accomplished a lot since my last entry. Fortunately for us here in MoBay, hurricane Dean did not cause much damage. The power was off for about 3 days, so when we arrived back we did have to throw away everything in the fridge. Our friends in the middle of the island suffered minor damage and friends in Kingston at the City of Refuge children's home suffered severe damage. Thankfully no one was injured. To my knowledge, none of them have had phone and internet service restored.
The most important thing we have done is get some furniture and other household items that make living a more beautiful thing. That day will be saved for another post. Nathan started school and Todd and I are doing the music at our humble church. Believe me it is better than singing to the beat on the microphone. Nathan has joined the football (soccer) team at his school but has only had one practice due to the afternoon rains...and the afternoon clouds...and the morning rains. Jamaicans do nothing if it even appears to be adverse conditions. They cancel practice because they think it might rain. At least that's what it seems like to us.
Well, let me go ahead and see if this will post and then I will attempt to do others with pictures. I have lots of pictures to show that will help me communicate much more effectively. Until then...
