I don't DO SICK

I've been sick since Monday....but I made it to the main appointments each day and spent the rest of the day in bed. 

Picked Mike up on Monday.

Ten international tickets were purchased  - and $9,000.00 worth of yen purchased (involving many stops).  

PWOC Bible Study was led. 

Volunteer Dinner attended and spoke at (not sure what I SAID as I couldn't read my notes because I was dizzy).

Orthodontist and clinic appointments kept.  And I SLEPT... a I'm up - but I'm going to spend the afternoon down, I think. 

Today, with nothing on the schedule but school and Japanese tonight....I am able to get up and not throw up.... We've been up, done school, taken care of a bit of business...meatballs are in the crock pot and I plan to nap until dinner time.....

Operaring at about 40% today.

We're Rich

Stacia loves to help me!  Today she excitedly showed me boxes and boxes in the dining room.

"We think these are PWOC STUFF!" 

How right she was....she loved opening the boxes....

It was fun to watch her excitement both for the books and for the opportunity to be involved in serving. 

We have started a PWOC library here in Misawa. We of the board knew it sounded like a good idea...we were thinking of the great material we'd like to get to women, but the difficulty in scheduling all the studies AND locating the material up here. Our thought was to stock some books on key topics so if some want that in a session when we AREN'T offering say a study on marriage we can direct them to some good resources. 

BUT we've discovered something more...ladies are EXCITED to have a spot to share their Christian books when they are done with them. Our base library doesn't stock many Christian books. The nearest Christian book store is thousands of miles away. This has been a great way for women to read a book and share with others....and a great way to fill the need as we were blessed with funding to buy brand new books in a variety of genres. 

We've already started the library but having this influx of books will be GREAT.  We have books on marriage, Christian living, parenting, single parenting, step families, church history, study helps, apologetics, fiction, suspense, biographies (for KIDS and moms), a few books for kids......exciting. 

As Stacia excitedly exclaimed as she unpacked box after box, " Books....PWOC BOOKS.... we're RICH WITH BOOKS!"  If you're local check out the selection under the windows in the conference room. There are instructions to borrow a book right there under the window ledge. 

If you happen to live in the states and have current Christian books you are done with, I'm willing to read your book and give it a new home.
