Day Off in Doro

Joshua in our market 
This year Eli and I committed to making sure we take a day off every week. Since our weekends are full of ministry in the camps, we chose Monday to be our day off. Some Mondays are a real challenge to actually get a break when the rest of the neighborhood is starting their new week. Last week we hosted the Commissioner on our day off! This week, our Monday Rest Day was a big success and we're feeling so refreshed by it.

Yesterday started out slowly, sleeping in and having a leisurely breakfast. Around 10 am Joshua and I went on a date to the Bunj market which is a 10 minute drive from our home. It was fun to explore around the market looking for what we needed and also finding new things that have come in from Ethiopia and Uganda.

Hole-in-the-wall shop
 I couldn't believe my eyes when I spied Coffeemate powdered creamer in this shop!

 After our afternoon rest, we walked down to the river with a few friends to cool off in the water.

The water felt so good!


Eli made the kids laugh with his magic tricks

The kids even braved a water/mudslide

Fun and pain all at the same time


We finished off the day with a big bowl of chocolate peanut butter popcorn, cold sodas, and Mythbusters. I'm so thankful we had a successful day off!
