The Car Wash

Twenty minutes into our Village Car Wash, we discovered we had NO WATER! The hookups for our hose weren't working, because the master water valve was shut off. :( So the 15 of us looked at each other, and began contemplating other options.

Massive game of hide and seek? Freeze tag in the street? Licking the cement? Every idea seemed like a lot of fun, but not necessarily helping the whole "Send Bridget to Africa" thing.

A resourceful David and Mike returned to us with the knowledge that Bella Vino had a working hose hookup!! Mike, Bridget and I trooped on over to beg for mercy. The Manager had pity on us and the Car Wash was back in business!!!

We were able to wash loads of cars- we made $450 in the end, enough to send along some supplies and help cover some of Bridget's land costs...ie, food and shelter. Bridget will be taking off this Thursday, for 18 hours of travel until touchdown in Uganda. Please keep her in your prayers especially this week, for safe travel and a blessed trip.

Fantastic Village (complete with bow-tie, lol) and I'll be sure to keep Bridget in my prayers!

Hey Beth! We finally named the squirrel's that come to our door.
Sir Francis the Nut and Weasley the Sneezely. :P I took some pictures of Sir Francis today so you can see what he does at our door. I'll eventually get them to you! :)
