The Days Happenings
Well...today has been somewhat uneventful!! There is the usual watching of Karlee and cooking and picking things up. I have also been reading a book. It is a series by Janette Oke. They are really good books. There is a total of 6 and I am on the 4th one. It is about a girl in her late teens going to teach at a backwoods school house. While there she marries and her husband is in law enforcement, which takes him from place to place every 3 to 4 years. She finds it very hard to live the way the people around her do. She and her husband are among Indians at all times. It takes her quite a while to learn the Indian dialect in which they use. In the mean time she finds many hardships and longs for a child and her family back east. She has to keep her faith in God and remember that He is always there for her when she needs Him the most. She and her husband are more like missionaries in the areas in which they serve. I have found this book to help me understand just a bit of what a missionary goes through and makes we want to pray for them even the more. If anyone is interrested in these books you can go to www.janetteoke.com and look for the books in " The Canadian West Series"
