These Days at Our House
What happens when you bring a family of 6 over 2,000 miles to a different country, their own mind you but different than what they are used to and put them around lots of people in closed up spaces (school and lots of different churches)? You get bombarded by lots of new germs!! These past 10 days have been a rough time here at the Stilwells, okay, not still well, still sick :) Three children have had strep throat (a first for the kids), the fourth has a cough (very usual for him), mom has a sinus infection along with an ear infection and some stomach issues. We are so thankful for a healthy daddy who has taken care of all of us. We are all on the mend and each day finds us with more energy, less fever and discomfort and thankful for a good medical system. It also reminds us that we are so ready to return to Peru! Of course, then we get to start all over, it will be winter down there and new germs again, ugh! Oh well, that is the life of a missionary, we wouldn't trade it for anything.
