Here are some lessons I'm already learning as a missionary:
1. Pride = out the window. Or at least it will be. Already I've had to just deal with the fact that I was re-wearing dirty, sweaty clothes... to CHURCH. Oh well.
2. Lice treatments will most likely be a weekly thing. Twice I've been warned of children who have it, after I hugged on them all day. The hugs aren't going to be stopping, so it looks like the lice treatments are my answer to that predicament.
3. I'm going to have to make a plan, daily. Oh, and it will need to be realllly flexible. My small moleskin notebook is my new best friend.
4. God is the ultimate provider. He provided us a PO Box when the postal worker was telling us all of the reasons we wouldn't be able to get one, and he has given us a home to stay in both in the US and in Mexico for the next few months as we settle in, and we trust that He will provide the next place for us too. Oh, and did I mention it was free? God is so good. Plus, He used others to introduce Wade to a man who owes several pharmacies and just so happens to be looking for a pharmacist with an active Alabama pharmacy license. I mean, come on, God. That's just showing off ;)
