I am not complaining here just wanted to give you an idea of what the rain brings. Our neighbors lives at the boarder in Tijana. The only times they are are here is during carnival and maybe two different weeks of the year. So when their mangoes fall they stay there. This produces a mass amount of fruit flies. Our kitchen becomes a battle ground between fruit flies and regular flies and bug spray and fly swatters for a good three months. We just had an exterminator come yesterday. This morning when we got up, no flies what so ever. It is nice feeling to be fly free for at least a moment.
Just last week we had two different days of rain with more than 5 inches of rain. That is a lot of rain. It makes everything grow.
Speaking of growing, when we got home we enjoyed having our three bible school students home for vacation. They jumped right in to ministry while we were away. They were leading the bible study, youth group and even started sharing at church on Sunday mornings. What I sensed when I first went to the youth group was a desire to learn how to do practical evangelism. So we decided to go through the Way of the Master video course. We are only 4 videos into it but already, I have seen some starting putting it in to practice. It is something that you can teach but until that person decides to share their faith with others, there is nothing you can do. We are encouraged to be seeing the growth of our young people.
