WELL, I HAVE LEARNED SOME THINGS THIS WEEK! I LEARNED THAT GOD TRULY ANSWERS PRAYERS IN MYSTERIOUS WAYS. NO MATTER HOW SMALL OF A THING IT IS HE WILL ANSWER YOUR PRAYER! THE OTHER THING I LEARNED IS THAT HE ALSO SOMETIMES ANSWERS TWO PRAYERS AT ONCE. ​

SO HERE WERE TWO THINGS I PRAYED ABOUT THIS WEEK:
1. TO HAVE SOMETHING TO EMAIL ABOUT.
2. TO GET RID OF THE NASTY FRUIT FLIES!

I KNOW WHAT YOU ARE THINKING, HOW IS IT THAT THESE TWO THINGS ARE IN ANYWAY RELATED. I THINK GOD MUST HAVE PONDERED THAT TOO. HE CAME US WITH A CREATIVE WAY THOUGH TO HELP ME OUT WITH BOTH.

IT ALL STARTED WHEN SISTER GRIFFUS SAID “HEY LETS HAVE CHIPS (FRENCH FRIES) FOR DINNER TONIGHT!”
“OK, WE NEED SOME MORE OIL, WE CAN PICK SOME UP AT THE MARKET ON THE WAY HOME!”
SO WE DID, ALONG WITH A LIME, AVOCADO, A CUCUMBER AND TOMATOES FOR A SALAD!
WHEN WE WERE READY TO GET DINNER STARTED WE… WELL STARTED MAKING DINNER! (DIDN’T SEE THAT ONE COMING DID YOU!) SO I MADE THE SALAD, AND PUT THE OIL TO HEAT UP ON THE STOVE WHILE SISTER GRIFFUS BEGAN PEALING POTATOES! I WALKED OVER TO WHERE SHE WAS (IN THE LIVING ROOM) AND SHE SAYS “HEY DON’T KEEP THE OIL ON THE STOVE JUST HEATING LIKE THAT OR IT WILL CATCH FIRE.” ALL OF A SUDDEN IT CAUGHT FIRE. YUP!

SO BOTH OF US REACT. ITS INTERESTING TO SEE HOW DIFFERENT PEOPLE REACT IN A TIME OF UNEASE AND UNCERTAINTY! FOR INSTANCE I RAN TO THE KITCHEN AND SISTER GRIFFUS RUNS TO GET A CAMERA.

NEITHER OF US KNOWS WHAT TO DO. MEAN WHILE THE FIRE IS BUILDING AND BUILDING! SISTER GRIFFUS IS RUNNING AROUND LIKE A LOST DOG WHILE I AM JUST TRYING TO REMEMBER WHAT TO DO! ALL I KNOW IS THAT I DON’T PUT WATER ON IT. WHY IS IT THAT WE DON’T GET TAUGHT WHAT TO DO WITH A GREASE FIRE BUT JUST WHAT NOT TO DO! THAT MAKES THINGS INCONVENIENT FOR THOSE WHO FIND THEMSELVES IN THESE TYPE OF SITUATIONS. THIS IS WHY MISSIONARIES SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO TAKE THEIR MOTHERS ON MISSION WITH THEM!

WELL MEANWHILE THE FLAMES ARE BUILDING AND I HAVE RAN OUT OF IDEAS, I WANT TO TAKE THE POT OFF THE STOVE BUT IT DOESN’T HAVE HANDLES! SO I RUN FOR HELP! SISTER GRIFFUS IS STILL GOT HER CAMERA AND NOW THE PHONE EVEN! WHY!? WHAT IS SHE GOING TO DO WITH THAT!? EVEN SHE DOESN’T KNOW! I RUN TO THE DOOR THEN TO MY GATE TRYING TO UNLOCK THE GATE. WHY DO WE HAVE TO BE SO PROTECTED IT IS HARD TO GET OUT OF THIS PLACE! THEN FINALLY RUN TO MY NEIGHBORS GATE! BANG BANG BANG BANG! NOTHING! THEN MY GUARD RUNS UP MY STAIRS AND I JUST SAY “HELP ME!” RUN INTO MY FLAT AND HE TAKE A SPATULA AND FLINGS THE PAN OFF OF MY STOVE… AT ME ACTUALLY! LUCK IT GETS STUCK ON THE OTHER HOT PLATE SO HE HAS TO FLING IT AGAIN AND I GOT OUT OF THE WAY! WELL HE FLINGS IT SPILLING GREASE ALL OVER AND NOW EVERYTHING IS ON FIRE…

THE FLAT BURNED DOWN BUT ITS OK BECAUSE ITS HIS FAULT SO WE DON’T HAVE TO PAY FOR ANYTHING. WE HAVE NO POSSESSIONS NOW AND ARE LIVING IN THE STREETS BUT ITS OK TOO AT LEAST WE HAVE THE PHONE AND CAMERA MY COMP GRABBED! MY COMP WAS EATEN MY A LION LAST NIGHT BUT HEY AT LEAST THE FUNERAL IS TOMORROW SO I STILL GET TO EMAIL PLUS THAT MEANS THE CAMERA AND PHONE ARE MINE NOW! I AM THINKING ABOUT ADOPTING A SMALL CHILD TO KEEP ME COMPANY!!!

OK I AM LYING THAT DIDN’T HAPPEN! I WOULD SEND IT BUT I AM SURE ABOUT 80% OF YOU WILL BELIEVE ME! 😉

…SPILLING GREASE ALL OVER AND NOW EVERYTHING IS ONE FIRE! BUT THEN IT ALL DIED DOWN AND MY FLAT WAS SPARED! MEAN WHILE MY COMP IS STILL IN THE FRONT ROOM! SHE MANAGED TO CALL SOMEONE THOUGH! GOOD JOB SISTER GRIFFUS! GOOD JOB! YOU CALLED SOMEBODY 4 HOURS AWAY! I AM SURE HE COULD’VE HELPED OUT A LOT! HAHA! I LOVE THAT GIRL!

WELL IT WAS A VERY FUN TIME! HERE IS A COOL PART IN IT ALL THOUGH! WE HAD A PICTURE OF JESUS ABOVE OUR STOVE. THE FLAMES CLEARLY REACHED IT! SHOULD’VE BURNED BUT NOPE! NOT EVEN A LITTLE! I WILL BE TAKING IT WITH ME THOUGH AND PUTTING IT ABOVE MY STOVE PROBABLY FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE! YUP NOTHING BURNED EXCEPT FOR THE FRUIT FLIES! DEAD! DIED OR RAN AWAY! WELL I GUESS THEY WOULD’VE FLOWN AWAY! BUT YEAH! IT WAS A FUN NIGHT!

I CAN ONLY IMAGINE GOD! HE WAS PROBABLY LAUGHING THE WHOLE TIME! WATCHING US HEED TO THE ANSWER OF MY PRAYERS!
