This is trip is definitely full of firsts.
I ate termites for the first time. And probably the last. They weren’t too bad, but I wouldn’t say that I liked them. We dipped them in some Nutella and that made them taste much better.
I plucked a chicken for the first time. The chicken was a gift from a family that we went to visit. JD killed it by cutting the jugular and bleeding it to death. Then we put it in boiling water which makes the feathers very easy to take off. I kinda freaked out a bit before I started to pluck it, but once I got into it, it wasn’t too bad.
Me, Sarah, and Stacey were the “honored guests” at the inauguration of a café at one of our neighbors’ house. He made us the honored guests because we gave him money so he could give out free food on his first open night. We gave him $30 which bought enough food for about 100 people.
It’s weird to be stared at so much. There are only about 12 white people in Timbi Madina and all but one are CMA missionaries. So we are quite a sight. We have each gotten a few marriage proposals too. It’s very funny. We just tell them that they have to go to America and ask our father for permission.
Tomorrow, we are going to a neighboring village for the weekend. We will do an English camp and really just live like the people do. I’m very excited.
Please continue to pray for me.
I love you all!!
