If we had a theme it'd probably be "In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps." Proverbs 16:9. No matter how much we can plan, the Lord is always in control and things definitely don't always go according to our plan! Wednesday morning was to be spent in the village of Kilimary. Steve was going to share the story of Stephen and plans for next week (now this week) were going to be discussed. However, upon arriving in Kilimary, we were greeted by several children but only these two men.
It seems that everyone else had gone to pay their respects to a family who had lost a son. The man was part of the military and had been killed by the local cattle thieves. We had just seen many of the leaders of this village the day before at the market to set up coming - but apparently at that time they had not heard about the situation.
We hadn't taken a family pic, so after snapping one in Kilimary, we loaded up and headed back to Tulear! Thanks so much for all of your prayers - we had a great trip and are looking forward to many more. Also - we'd love for you to be lifting up the guys as they are already back in the bush again!
