Today, the Bensons left for the States. They got up at 6:00 and waited for Ezekiel to pick them up so they could go to the airport. They left their car, and our dog Georgia, with us. After they left we started our school. Mom hasn’t gotten all of our books organized yet, so we didn’t do as much school as we would have wanted to, but at least we started. After school, we went to Asana. A hotel that is also a restaurant. Their food in so good, and nobody makes better tomato sauce than them. Well, when we got home we did our chores, and practiced our instruments. We had popcorn for supper, and then we did our family Devotions.
Tom and Barb Needham (Uncle Tom and Aunt Barb to us) have been a blessing to our family through the years. For two months we lived with them after first arriving to Cameroon. They helped us look for housing, appliances, vehicles, etc... We hope you enjoy getting to know Uncle Tom a bit in this brief interview.
Today was different. We were supposed to start school, but didn’t really because the Bensons, a Missionary family that helped watch our dog while we were on furlough, were coming to spend the night before returning for their furlough, and dropped of our dog, Georgia. Georgia was given to us to watch for another missionary couple while they were on their furlough. They let us keep her. :) We have had her for over six years. She has been a blessing to us. We all love her, except for Drew because she killed two of his pet chameleons!
I sleep with her in my bed every night. In the day when you say “Go get in your bed,” She will get in her doggie bed, but if you say it at night, she will get in my bed. She is getting old and might not be with us much longer, so I treasure my time with her.
There is no better dog than an already trained, inside dachshund. She is a big part of my childhood. -Emma
