I haven't written since Friday. If this has caused your heart to despair, fear not! If you hadn't really noticed, hey! pay attention!
We're in St. Louis, doing prayer meetings and staying in a host home. Lemme tell you about host homes. We travel a decent amount, with the Radiants, and often, we sleep in people's houses. Sometimes we sleep in twin sized racecar beds, sometimes we sleep in guest apartments, all kinds of houses and setups and families. I think I know how to work every kind of shower fixture in the United States, even the ones that have a little hidden ring in the faucet... half the team took baths before someone figured that one out.
Anyways, usually we live in a house for one night, maybe 2. So three weeks is asking a lot. Our hosts here have been super gracious, but man! monitoring toddlers in someone else's house is a hard job.
There are 2 golden retrievers here, a big beautiful sleepy one and a backup puppy, who was extremely excited when Toby moved in and now tries to hide behind the ottoman. Toby and Brynn both love the big dog. They pet him and talk sweet to him and try to ride him, occasionally. I am not a dog person, in fact, I am somewhat opposed to animals in general, but these are good dogs. If I were forced to have a dog or deny Christ, I would get a golden retriever.
Lord, I'm tired. If we do 21 days in Sacramento, I might just ask for a padded cell for me and the wee ones...
