SLEEP! Please, somebody get us some sleep!

After realizing that we had to overnight in Dallas, John and I ended up getting to a hotel room by 1030 pm and eating by 11:30pm (we had not eaten since lunch). Then we had to catch a shuttle this morning by 4:30 am. So we are running on 3 hours of sleep. I’m here…

A praying village

Men are almost non-existent in the family unit. They come around when they want. There is little to no marriage…
