A Day in LaGlah
Today is February 12 and we are going to LaGlah. It always seems too long since we have been to any village. I just want to stay in every one all the time in order to be more help to them!
We start out on the shortcut path uphill to the pagoda. The bulldozer has just come down this way and made a fine road out of it! This is incredible because in the 5 plus years I have been here, this has never happened! Now we step onto freshly plowed soil! What a road! This means 2.5 hours to drive to Meta now instead of 5, but we cannot come this way yet because of the concrete on the other side of the pagoda.
The people in the surrounding villages don’t like it because they think the roads are being improved so that the soldiers can come in and stamp out opium! Personally that sounds great to me! The only bad thing is that sometimes they have orders to shoot on the spot. Two men have already died that way.
Won’t you please pray for them?
