Breakthrough

So I have found (after a few days of searching) some really useful contacts here in the city.

I have also found some information on the mystery woman that I have been asking about over the last couple of days (a VERY round trip: one church, one bishop, four convents – two of which were either destroyed or no longer existed – some conversations with people on the street and in the market, a private meeting with a local business owner and finally an email back to Canada). One really great things is that I’ve gotten to know some good people. It has been really usefully for me to get out and talk to people and it is a great conversation starter when you can ask for their help to find someone.

The end result of a couple of days walking around the city and asking questions is that I now know a couple of people who may be able to help out either in a moment of need or if I just have questions. I was really blessed to have a person from Guyana give me some advice before I left and she is going to try and connect me with the person that I have been looking for.

This is all good for the long term and I’m pretty happy with how things have worked out so far.

I am very thankful for all of the blessings that I have received and some great time just to walk through the city and to focus on what is most important. Today I got to spend some really great time in prayer as I watched the tide come in.

And now some big things are starting to happen. Tomorrow I meet the director of the youth organization that I will be working for and get handed over. I also get to move into the place where I will be living. The next big challenge will be to figure out what it is that I am supposed to do while I am here:)
