O-Be-Dum is our handyman at Bangla Hope he can fix everything. He is a Catholic man who worked at the Catholic hospital before coming to work for Bangla Hope. He fled from there to escape an arranged marriage so he could marry this girl. :) I am so happy that he actually got to marry the girl that he wanted. I have started thinking....I think that when I get married I want to have two weddings: a traditional one in the states and one with my Bengali family in Bangladesh!

I woke up at 6am. This is unusual. This is only unusual because I want to bed at 12:00am last night.
My evenings have been filled with Badminton, 5 crowns, lots of laughing, hugging kids and last night we watched the Olympic opening games!
Bangladesh I will be leaving you soon, and even as I type that I get a sickening feeling in my stomach. I will miss you more than I have ever missed anything in my life. You have become my life, you have shown me a new way of thinking, you have helped direct me to know a bigger greater, grander God then I could have ever imagined. It seems surreal that soon I will not be waking up to roosters crowing in my back yard, greeted by a 104 kids every morning: I will miss every part of you.
Here I have found true Joy: I have LIVED NOW with TRUST and Joy and I am so thankful for all that you have blessed me with. Bangladesh I have a little more time with you and I am going to savor every minute of it.
