How Do You Kill a Spider?

Two more weeks of electricity! I am still on schedule to leave on July 27th to head back to Zimbabwe.

Last week I attended the CornerStone Summit, which is held every 5 years in Kentucky. Missionaries from all over the world including Honduras, Ecuador, Myanmar, Costa Rica, Sudan, and Israel came together for fellowship and fun. It was great to hear how God has been at work in so many different parts of the world.

I next traveled to the FOSA (Fairfield Outreach and Sponsor Association) board meeting. Everyone on the current FOSA board has visited Fairfield Children’s Home before, so it was wonderful to remember funny stories about the children we all know and love.

A lot of our conversations in both groups revolved around favorite methods of killing giant spiders and who had gone the most consecutive days without electricity! (I personally find smacking spiders from afar with a long-handled broom most effective, and I am one of the finalists as far as the “no electricity” competition…I am expecting my certificate in the mail soon:)

I have had a great few months with family and friends, as well as being able to speak with many different churches and groups. Now it is time to delve back in to the lives of my children in Zimbabwe. With your continued support and prayers, as well as faithful love and care from those in Zimbabwe, the children’s lives are being forever changed. I can’t wait to find out what God has in store for them in the future!

  1. Spider killing: I don't know if walnut trees are widely available in Zimbabwe...but spiders are naturally averse to (here "averse to" means deathly reaction) walnut oils. Spread some every couple of weeks around spider entry zones, and viola. 1)They will stay away (they know the smell...) and 2) if they enter, they will take five spider steps and wish they hadn't.
