Jour Huit

hello all!!!
This morning was a very restful morning! We had a huge storm last night and most of our rooms got decently flooded throughout the night. Dr. Norman gave us his air conditioned room for the night and he slept in another room. We got a lot colder than we thought we would just because we were so used to the heat that our bodies got colder faster than if we were at home. This morning we were supposed to go out and visit more people, but because it was off of a side road we couldn't go because of the amount of rain we received over the night. So we got to sleep in a bit this morning and had a great discussion for devotions. Around lunch time we went to the tailors to see if he was done with our clothing, and we went to visit Levi to have him fix some of the items we needed for our presentation in Bamako. Steve and Chip, from Joni and Friends, joined us just in time for lunch!! It was great to talk to them and inform them of what we have been doing and what some of our future plans are. In about an hour they will go with Dr. Norman, Hannah, Jo and Emily to visit the people that Liz and I (Sarah) visited yesterday. We have a busy next couple of days, preparing for the workshop but it will be great to be able to introduce Steve and Chip to some of the wonderful people we know and love here!!
