Greetings to everyone -- we were busy this week, but we didn't have many photo ops. We have been staying around the apartment more trying to wrap up projects and to get the apartment ready for the Allen's when they come in three weeks. Last week when we looked out our window, we saw this beautiful eagle soaring on the wind stream:
While we were driving to town one day, this motorcycle guy cut in front of us. Motorcycles are always cutting in front and literally drive anywhere they want. But we were intrigued by the basket load of rolls he was carrying on the back of his motorcycle. They looked so good! I wanted to follow him to see where he was going to take them, but Ben wouldn't do it.
Right now in Sabah there is a very critical shortage of diesel fuel. You read all kinds of explanations of why this is happening in the paper. Apparently, the government contracts with the diesel fuel manufacturers to provide so much diesel fuel for sale each month. The last few months, the government has guessed wrong on how much diesel will be needed and the diesel gets to be in very very low supply during the last few days of the month. This month, the shortage started sooner than usual. As a result
We took a drive to the town of Tuaran where we have a project in the works. This project seems to be having more problems than Carter has pills. It was supposed to be done and over with by May 31. I may have mentioned it before, it is a project with the Blind Society. We were invited to their fund raising dinner a couple of weeks ago. We are still struggling trying to get this project moving forward. The only thing they have accomplished so far is to have new shelves built for the baskets they make there:
We have an appointment to meet with the Blind Society -- again -- and see what is going on. They are also having trouble getting the braillers and embosser we were going to buy for them.
We will be wrapping up a project with the Deaf Society on Saturday. The members are going to help paint the children's playground equipment, swings, see-saw, slide, etc. I hope we get a good turnout. Will report on the next blog.
Stay well and happy. The gospel is true and can bring you much joy. Please drop us a line if you can. We really miss everyone so much. Love to All E/S Read
