Lovely evening to kick off the trip, with the Gomez family, they are such a delightful family…now for the much-needed sleep, I’ve pretty much managed to stay awake until ‘normal’ bedtime in the U.K. (midnight here, 6 am now back home), so I’m praying that sleep comes easily, and works wonders on these battered legs!!
I have to confess to breaking one of my cardinal sins, and one of my ‘strong advice words’ to people coming with me…. I repent!!! I always – for myself, and advise others- avoid sleeping during the day after a 20+ hour journey, even for an hour, as it can so easily knock the jet-lag into action, and we do have a 6 hour time change here…. that really can muck up the night’s sleep. I slept on an off for about an hour this afternoon (Saturday), and it’s now 0530 a.m. and I haven’t slept a wink yet… up in 2 hours for a church meeting, where I’m going to be as fresh as a daisy to preach!
It’s been wonderful to have had 3 months or so (March to June) relatively pain-free: then before the full breakthrough to the healing of the osteoarthritis came, the enemy has tried to bring breakdown. I’m not having that, that’s why I’m here now, and maybe it’s not a coincidence that in the morning, Thanney and I are at the lovely Mision El Abrigo Internacional church, where the 3 months of breakthrough began in March.
Time for breakthrough again tomorrow, not just for me, but for others in that lovely congregation.
