Long Days without Daddy

Well, we finally have our computer working again after a week and a half. I was surprised at how much I missed it once it was gone! Today is our eighth day without Chris. He is in India having an amazing time! God is moving "like a river" there right now. I can't wait to have my husband back, but I know his life is being changed forever while he is away. They finished a three day crusade on Sunday night and had 4-5,000 people there! Hundreds were healed and many were saved. Chris and Sean (another guy from our church) were almost crushed be people wanting prayer. What an awesome time!
On the home front, our furnace broke the first night Chris was gone and our house got down to 45 degrees. I put Kinley in bed with me so we would stay warm and of course neither of us slept well. We did get it fixed the next night though. I now have a window open to let in some cool air because it is so warm in here, but I'm afraid to turn it off because I don't know how to light it again! Oh well, we'll survive. I also had to pick out a new dryer by myself today! Hope it is a good pick because it is being delivered this afternoon!

It sounds like you are making some pretty hard decisions without Chris there to help. Keep up the good work, it sounds like it was a good choice for Chris to go on this trip. It is tough being at home alone for a long period of time with children to take care of. I don't know how single parents do it. Justin will be in Virginia all next week. I am not looking forward to that, but I am getting better at managing each time he goes away.

Yikes! Of course all that would happen when Chris leaves. That stinks. It sounds like you are making it though. When do they come back?
