Personally, I don't find much flavor to the yam. A lot of people will make a stew to go alongside of it. But, overall, not a bad vegetable to eat.
Just a little prayer request: if you could still pray for our neighborhood to have some water, more and more families are searching for water. A lot of wells are running dry here. As a family, we are reading right now about Aaron, Moses' brother. We are in the part of the story where the people are constantly complaining about not having water while they were wandering in the desert. John and I just chuckled because we are trying really hard to know and trust that obviously God can provide water from rock if He wanted, and if He doesn't want to then He has other plans. So, in the meanwhile we are praising Him for his food provisions for us, our amazing home that is sturdy and does not let the water in (mostly anway), our landlord, our staff team and the friends we have made here who help guide us and lead us with cultural differences, etc... As we have tried praising Him for what He has done, we have come to realize that He has done so much! More than we have time for and once again, we find ourselves grateful.
