From the Country!

Good morning everyone. I am suppose to be at our church right now relaxed and worshiping God but I'm NOT! It is funny how the weather is in this country. It will not rain a DROP from the end of September to the beginning of May. But the other months between these...it doesn't stop raining! And at the beginning the rain that comes is very strong and since the ground is hard as a rock and very dry it doesn't absorb it very well and it floods bad...like the week ago with the people here in Chiquimula. So when you don't have a dryer to dry your clothes and you rely on the sun to do the job it makes it very difficult to have dry clothes when it is the rainy season. We have not been able to do any clothes for the past three days b/c of the rain. And now, pretty funny, we are hanging our clothes inside our house and putting our fans on them hoping they will dry before one of the kids pulls them down or the day is over with. And we don't have any rope right now so we are using our extention cord! But, Lord willing, we will have dry clean clothes after today! And I think we are going to bite the bullet and go buy a dryer probably TOMORROW!! But never know how long it will be before the 2-20 plug will be able to get put in and we can actually use the dryer if we get one. I think I will learn how to wire a dryer in the next couple of days. So pray that I don't die! first of all and then that no one else dies afterwards if I get it put in. But we are still having fun and trying to laugh. And the reason I am not at church is after Brandi left with our neighbors and the kids to go on to church, I was going to go after I got the extention cord and clothes all up and good to go...But my TRUCK won't start! I don't know what it is this time but I reckon we will get it straightened out sooner or later. So now I am going to go to Killen's website and try to listen to good ol Bones preach a message. Take care and there you go.

  1. Do you have someone there that can help you wire up for a dryer? Is their electrical grid
    the same as ours in the states? Do you need a voltage tester? If you do I can send one down with Luke.

  2. Well Wayne...Those are some good questions my man...don't know what you are talking about grids and why do i need to test the voltage when I can touch it and see whether it works or not...hahaha You know, I really don't think there is a grid here for real. They have a meter that runs to switches that then runs to your plugs and so forth...there is already a 2-20 wire running outside to our a/c unit that passes where the dryer needs to be. I was going to connect or splice the wire to it and run it down to my dryer plug...what do you think?
