Prayer Request!

I have a prayer request. Our drain field has been overworked and nothing is draining right now. We don't have the money (and don't want to spend it) to get it fixed so we are just going to let the ground dry out. Meanwhile we really can't run much water into our sewer which means no showers, no washing clothes, no dishwasher, etc. So....we will be going to the laundry mat here, back to washing dishes by hand and going to other people's houses for showers. And of course there is the toilet....but we won't go into that. :)

So....will you please pray that:
1. It won't rain so everything will dry up quickly. (Main prayer request, if it doesn't rain it might only take a week or two clear up. If not, it might not be 'till the end of April that it's all back to normal)
2. We will be content without all of these modern conveniences (good thing we all like rustic camping!)
3. That we can see the good things in all this (like that it's March and not January)
4. That we will be more thankful for what we have!

Thanks!
In Christ,
~Bethany~

I'm praying for you over here Bethany...it must be kind of hard with a big family, but let's just Thank God for good neighbors!!

Hey, I've got an idea!!! (not like it'll work, but for the fun of it:) You could all spend a month with us...I have a feeling that we wouldn't like each other much at the end. Nevermind then.

Love always,
Jenna

This comment is from Bethany's Dad:

Regarding the toilet and "we won't go into that". How right you are!

Jenna,
Thanks for praying! I wouldn't work, but it would be fun to come to your house for a while! Probably not a month since we would all get pretty tired of each other after a while. :)

Dad,
Okay, okay. Get the point. :)
