As some of you may know, Jordan had a run in with a ceiling fan this past week. She was up on the top bunk of her bunk bed and the ceiling fan whacked her in the head. The result was a little gory, so if you do not like blood you may want to skip down a few sentences J. The fans here are like weapons - 3 pieces of metal flinging themselves around in the area. When Jordan was struck it opened up a gash in her head about an inch long and pretty gaping. It was also really deep and pretty wide. We were in language class when it occurred and the girls were with the babysitter. The babysitter came and got us and we took her immediately to the medical center, where Jordan received 3 stitches in her forehead above her right eye. This is pretty much the first major accident we have had with our girls in 5 years of having kids. In looking at these fans, we are grateful to God that the result was only 3 little stitches. A little lower and Jordan could have easily lost an eye. Our God is good and is always watching over us. We are grateful for His provision and protection.
Please continue to pray for us and the people of Boubon - that God would ready their hearts for the gospel of Jesus Christ. I am including at the end of this blog some pictures of our village.
