One of those LONG nights!

Hi... this is Sara in Cameroon again!

We have a lot of cats. They are great! They have provided hours of entertainment when nothing else was available, loved us unconditionally (most of the time), kept our houses rat, lizard and roach free, but.... there are times....

We had one of those times about 2 nights ago. We found a way for our cats to venture in and out of the house themselves so that we don't have to let them in and out all the time. Most of the time this is great, but....they are real hunters and love to "show off" their latest catches with us.We have gotten used to the mornings when we wake up to find pieces of mice, birds and even bats everywhere. I woke up around 2:00 am hearing one of the cats "I have something to show you" meows. I turned on the light because I didn't want to find out what it was when the cat brought it up on the bed to show me (rare, but it has happened). What I saw sent me running to put on my calf high army boots and make a dash down the hall for the machete. It was a 2 foot black snake (Thank the Lord that it was a mostly dead version). Here I don't take chances as there are many varieties of very poisonous snakes. I was able to make "quick work" of the snake. I have to admit that it did take several hours for the adrenaline to dissipate enough to get some sleep. Suz and I locked the cats out of my room for the rest of the night as we didn't want anymore surprises.

When we inquired about the snake we found out that, indeed, the snake was one of the deadlier varities here. One of the cats must have taken a really small bite on her face as you could see the fang marks and half of her face was really swollen. She is fine now.

All of the time we find things to be grateful to the Lord for! This is the fourth time a snake has been in our house with no real harm to us or the pets!!! Keep praying for us.... we definitely need the prayer coverage. Also... a reminder... please let us know what your prayer needs are. We would love to be able to pray specifically for people.

Remembering the goodness of God!

It's so easy to get caught up in the day-to-day battles that life brings our way that we lose sight of all that the Lord is doing in our lives and through us. I know that I am particularily blessed to
