this was an email that i decided was worth posting as a blog:
got woken up this morning on his only off day around 7:30 am
with a text message from the military guys saying
"are we going to have a cook today? we took care of breakfast,
but what about lunch and dinner?"
turns out, valentino, the chef, didn't show up to work today.
turns out he left on sunday (his day off) and went to the village.
(he does this frequently)
turns out, he didn't even MENTION it to brian
though they see each other every day and work together in the kitchen
and he lives in the same building as us!
turns out, valentino DID call surj's brother to let them know
he wouldn't be back today and maybe not even tomorrow,
but no one bothered to tell brian or make sure today's work was covered.
turns out, brian has now worked and cooked lunch and dinner
ALL DAY LONG on his ONE off day and now he's in there doing dishes!
all after a full week of working til 8:30pm most nights!
he's handled it quite well actually. he's worn out... completely.
but i'm really impressed with his attitude.
God, give my man strength for this week!
no one can tell me my man doesn't work hard.
he's one of the hardest working men i know.
the other good news is, i cleaned our whole house today! :)
.....just a little taste of a day in the life in africa!
