I was watching the news tonight while working out – yes you read right – exercising. Ugh!! Anyway…while watching the news the temperature showed up at 100 + degrees at 5:30 pm. Incredible. It is the 24th day in a row of triple digit heat. Unbelievable. The heat just drains the energy out of me and I don’t want to be outside or do anything.

And then I started to smile…because honestly I would trade in this HEAT to be in the HEAT in Pucallpa, Peru building houses. The heat, the sweat, the work, the bugs – all of it just to be in the midst of where I am called to be. Somehow – that heat is bearable.
