3 days before we hit the road.

Really hectic here right now. We leave in 3 days and the truck still doesnt have any beds. We are cleaning out the apartment and throwing away junk. So much to do . . . The Stromness Baptist Church threw a lunch in our honour today. They prayed for us, showed pictures of our time here, and gave us some money for “diesel to get back to us”. How nice. Thanks everyone.
