Don't Flush That!

Most of Guatemala has poor plumbing. Our house has good plumbing, thank God, but we are the exception. In most bathrooms here, you cannot put your toilet paper in the toilet. You have to put it in the trash can. Jamie the very worst missionary talks more about this subject on her blog too.
So recently I was somewhere where I could not flush the toilet paper.  I don't know exactly how to say this, but on the way to the trash can some "stuff" got on my pants. I literally thought, this cannot be happening to me....
I tried to wipe it off, but it was not working...
after using paper towels and soap, I got my pants cleaned off.
Now, I am sure you are wondering, "Why is she telling us this horrid story?

1. So you can laugh at me.

2. So you can thank an american plumber.

3. So you can see that sometimes when we go where God wants us to go and do what God wants us to do, it gets messy. But God didn't promise that it wouldn't be messy, He just promised to be with us.

To be honest, often my Spanish is messier, but I'm working on it. 

1 Corinthians 1:28-31 
"He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him. It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. Therefore, as it is written: "Let him who boasts boast in the Lord."
