Life in the FLL: What do we do??

Well, this might be a loaded question…everyday is different…in good and bad ways.  We are in such a unique place in our journey here b/c we are together almost 24 hrs a day AND learning language.  We have a limit of one of us being gone max 7 days in a month.  Here’s a “normal” day for us:

  • We usually get up, get ready and take Maddie to school…IMG_3826
  • Then, come back and have an hour each of language class.  We have language helpers that will help us along in our studies and will go out with us if we need to practice in the community.  At this time, Will and I usually switch off watching Bug for the time being…
  • We go and get Maddie, come back, eat lunch (remember, here is what we eat everyday), and the girls take naps (and I do too!)…Will usually tries to get some work done during nap time and rests a little too…
  • After naps, we usually play for a bit, let the girls watch a short movie, have Art time and cook/eat dinner.
  • Then, we give baths, have Bible story time and put the girls down…
  • There’s not much time for just Will and I these days after the girls go to sleep…our days are so different, the girls’ bedtime has become 8:30 or 9 p.m.  This is one adjustment I wasn’t ready for, but we’re doing our best and trying to have date nights when we can.

When either Will or I go on trips, here’s kind of what a day would look like:

  • Leave out for the destination either by car, train, or plane (sometimes)…
  • Eat on the road…
  • Arrive at training site and chat for a bit…
  • Start a training (on time or not…) with believers on why we share, where do we share, who do we share with, what do we share, how do we disciple, and *hopefully* how to start fellowships among their people or people who have never heard before…
  • Tea Break…
  • Start training again…
  • Eat lunch and chat with folks in Hindi…(can you spot the white girl in the picture below? ha!)
  • Start training again (and do some fun things to keep these folks awake!)…
  • Tea Break…
  • Finish up that day’s training and allow these people to put into practice what they’ve learned.  This is so important to allow them to obey what the Lord has426512_10151761575675130_1358223377_n called them to do as believers!  They usually come back that evening and give a report to how their practice went – this is a fun time of encouragement and tangible way to pray.
  • Chat and rest with everybody…
  • Eat dinner around 8 or 9 (or later!)…and then go to bed and get ready to do it again for 1-2 more days.  Whew!

So, what do you think?  hahaha…interesting, huh?
