May 7. It has been a long and trying day. The Lord sent us lots of rain last night and lots of fog this morning. It was foggy everywhere, I guess, and Brent got a late start in flying. I was thankful I had made a tuna sandwich to eat, and I ate that around 11:00. About 11 people worked on the airstrip again this morning and we were very grateful for those who came and helped.
After getting all the last minute packing done, I worked on the progress report for April. Then we heard the plane coming from Aziana direction and thought he was coming for us so hurried to get the computer packed and close up the house. But it was a false alarm. He went on to Aiyura. But we already got things packed up and sent up to the airstrip in a hurry so I couldn’t go back to the progress report. Decided I would play the keyboard and write some choruses while we were waiting for the plane to come back. Hadn’t played the keyboard in a looooong time — just too busy.
We waited about an hour but never heard the plane fly back over us. Pretty soon we heard it coming again from Aziana direction. This time it did come to Owena. He had already landed before we left the house, but at least it only takes a few minutes now to get up to the landing area. Daddy went on ahead so he could talk to Brent. Matthew also came out on the flight with us.
It was somewhere around 1:00 before we got to town and 1:30 before we got to CRMF. We unpacked a few things while we were waiting for a car. I was too tired to go out shopping so Daddy went out, and I lay down for a nap. Didn’t sleep much though as there was smoke coming through the window from trash burning next door. Got up and worked on the progress report.
There was only one package for us downstairs in the office and one letter. I was really disappointed. The package was from Valley Baptist Church. Praise the Lord, Daddy was able to pick up two packages and some letters at the post office. One package was mailed January 23 to our old box number. I was SOOOOO thankful to see Olive Leaf Extract and Cranberry Extract. Those are two things I really really need. There was also some cranberry tea in the package from Valley.
