All I did today was ride from Cherokee Village to Fayetteville, Arkansas, and rent a car. The process took over seven and half hours and wore me out. I was able to drive back to Martha's (where I am staying) without hitting anything or anyone, but these people drive on the wrong side of the road. I called my wife to get her driver's license number for the insurance, but she's in L.A. and was at the beach. I work and she tans. Well, she's earned it. The rent-a-car company wanted $1,000 for insurance for a month, but my good friend Bob Kelly at Shelter Insurance in Gravette was able to do it for $138. Way to go, Bob! My ankles are still swollen after seven speaking engagements and a YouTube interview in two days, but they'll recover quickly and I don't have any other engagements till I preach twice and give an after church presentation on Sunday, so that's just ten presentations and sermons in eight days. It's why I came, though, and I've loved every minute of it. Even got a standing ovation at Cherokee Village--not for my presentation, but for my passion. I do love serving God's children in Tanzania, and I guess it shows.
