Sudan and A Chocolate Fest

No, there was not a Chocolate Fest in Sudan...but while Vernon and the guys from the Village are serving the Lord in the remotest part of the Earth, sharing the Gospel and loving on orphans and widows, my sons and I will be attending the Central Market's Festival of Chocolate. That's right folks you read it right, A Chocolate Festival. It starts today!!! I think we will try to go all three days! Basically you walk around Central Market and they serve free samples of a wide variety of bars, truffles and other chocolate treats! Can you get better than this?!? Seriously. While the Guys are worshiping by serving overseas, I will be worshiping while I delight in some of the finest the delicacies of life.Moving on, I spoke with Vernon today. He said it has been a great visit so far. They made safely but about 4 hours late...we like to call this Sudanese Standard Time (SST). Then off they went to the Lura Orphanage. They got held up on the road because some Land Minds were found in a field near by and they were de-mining them. When Vernon told me the plane was late and then they got held up by land minds, my reply was..."Well, they are getting a good feel for what real Sudan life is like!" He laughed and agreed. They had a great time in Lura. Yesterday they spent the day in Morobo at the other orphanage. Now they are back on the compound in Yei. Where they will stay for the next couple days doing all sorts of great things. Thanks for all the prayers!

Oh, and come join me at Central Market...you know you want too!
