Uh-oh, rain is coming. Just got dark.
Been a beautiful day so far.
Had internet almost the whole time.
Worked on the solar power system out in Savanette. After a
complicated jumpstart (literally, jumper cables to my car), the
system is back up and running, or at least charging.
Tomorrow morning I’ll try the inverter again, but if the batteries
are charged we shouldn’t have a problem.
Funny how I gave up on looking for a new guitar, than I found one on
craigslist today while I was bored. This one fell into the price
range of useful for a needed purpose though. It was going to cost my
at least $75-100 to fix my Alvarez Acoustic/Electric to bring down
here, and now I found one for $150 that doesn’t need fixed on the
same day that my parents sold my skis for me back home.
So, now it looks like I’ll try to have Josh bring me a guitar that I
can use to lead worship through a sound system.
Also, got some more updates today on Kwegslist. It’s moving forward
quite well. Joshua is very excited about it, and I look forward to
seeing progress and helping to get it developed.
Dr. Jay should have been here by now, so I’m bored. I talked to him,
and I knew he was running late, so I’m not worried, just ready for
the team to be here. Originally, they were due to get in around 3pm,
but delays in Port Au Prince pushed that back to more like 6 or
Also, in the world of Craigslist, I am realizing that if shipping
was figured out, I could probably get more useful stuff for down
Many churches are looking for instruments, and they aren’t picky.
I’ve seen trumpets, accordians, saxophones, guitars, keyboards, and
basses all pretty common. And for the guitarists out there, the best
guitar I’ve seen in country is a ESP LTD M-50, which is the lowest
end guitar ESP makes. If anyone has instruments laying around and
not being used, but still playable, I’ve got lots of homes for them.
Also, tools are still a common need, though I’m getting more
specific now. Eventually, I could use a framing nailer, but only if
someone is getting rid of it cheap.
For others, especially once Kwegslist is up, there will be other
things, like MIG welders, that would be very useful. Unfortunately,
that’s one person’s luggage (and probably an overweight baggage fee)
to get it here.
I’m thinking mostly in equipping organizations, mainly because
person to person gifts must be much more relational. I cannot give
tools to every person that asks, so I have to let the individual
organizations make the choices of who gets what, since they are much
more invested in the lives of the individuals.
I might have more thoughts, but I’m gonna post this before rain
ruins my internet signal. 🙂
