We have been so busy that we come home every night at about 6 P.M. on a good day or later on a crazy one. We just fall into bed and drop right off to sleep at about 9P.M. We than wake up at six get ready, eat and get to the Mission at about 7 to 7:30 A.M. Becky does nurse work off and on all day and when she has spare time helps out in the office doing many things. I am over the Mission finances, Mission Car Fleet, and All Flats for the missionaries. Becky has offered to help out with the Finances because I am overwhelmed. We work well together and have grown much closer over the last two months.
We live in a tiny flat but it is clean. Fiji is a beautiful country outside the city of Suva. The city is crazy and can not be explained unless you are here for yourself. We drive on the wrong side of the road and hope we don,t kill someone or ourselves!
We both get phone calls at all hours of the day and night helping sick Elders or Sisters or resolving car crashes to Elders burning their huts to the ground. Our first week here my first phone call was at 9P.M. and missionaries on a remote Island called Taveuni
near a village called Somosomo. They were injured and rolled their 4 wheel drive truck three times and did not know where they were exactly. What a start for me. I was up all night trying to get rescue and them to a hospital if that is what you called it on an outer remote Island. Some day when we are all telling mission stories we will have some real laughs!
