"To Do" Tuesday: WATSAN decoded (postponed)

Remember that time we were going to have "TO DO" Tuesday and then it was Monday night and Jessica realized that there was no way that Kyle was going to sit down and write on the blog? Yeah, I remember that time...

He will get to it. He always does...

"TO DO" Tuesday is meant to let you in on the details of the work that we will be doing in Liberia. It is your opportunity to see first hand how the Lord is at work in our own lives and the lives of others through the work of our hands. This week since our WATSAN tutorial has to be postponed I thought it appropriate to let everyone in on our ever growing "TO DO" list here in Asheville.

This past week was a whirlwind of speaking opportunities, work, a sleepover, meetings, celebrations, and more! This next weekend will be much needed time with family.

Then the real work begins...

June 5th we will be having a yardsale...scratch that...a life sale...

We have to sort through all of our worldly possessions and see what we might be able to glean a few dollars from. We will be up at the crack of dawn for yardsaling duties on June 5th. Let us know if you are up for helping! If you have any items you would like to donate to the yardsale shoot us an email or a phone call!

We will be moving out of our apartment at the end of June. Which means that everything has to either be sold, stored, or burned by the end of the month. Right now I am leaning towards burning because it seems simpler...Our "TO DO" list is inevitably going to get larger before it begins to shrink.

The time is drawing near for us to begin the process of packing for Liberia. It is hard to think through everything that you need to bring, send ahead (or behind), or buy over the course of a year, not to mention a year in a third world country!

Recent additions to our packing list:
Oil or gas camping stove
pressure cooker
clothes pins
good, sharp knife
linen pants

A little glimpse into the Hoover's pre-Liberia life!

  1. Hi, Jessica. I found an oven thermometer to be very helpful! It prevented a lot of frustration when trying to bake dinner and desserts. Also, I encourage you to take along a few of your favorite recipes. Comfort foods make for helpful coping mechanisms.

    Bless you!
