Josiah, the jungle kid

Last week Josiah and I were able to do a quick two day river trip.  We were able to briefly visit 4 villages and be at one very important elders meeting.  We had a really great father-son time on the trail and in the boat together.  This was Siah's first time spending the night in a village and he was pretty excited about it.  He was a real trooper as he insisted on carrying his own pack, drinking his own mazato and watching over the sloth that we caught. 

The believers were happy to meet our 7 year old boy and gave him a "Piwicho" (parakeet) which has since become a very dear friend for all the kids.  I think he really enjoyed himself, although he did fall asleep on the bench as I preached in the night service.... but that's quite understandable..... I gave the third of three long, boring sermons that night.  I'm sure it was tough on him :)
