Well, 2 days into it, and I feel pretty good. At the dinner/Africa Presentation tonight at the church (Which was absolutely amazing. I mean the pastor was telling a story about talking 15 people for dinner and it only costing 35 dollars for everyone which was crazy, but he did that as like a treat thing, but the rest of it was like wow, kind of an eye opener) the pastor had said about we could be eating as much rice and beans as we could eat for the fast and my mom and I have been rationing (so serving sizes, like a serving of beans is a quarter cup and we’ve been eating a cup of rice. We’re also eating brown rice at home so yesterday I wasn’t feeling hungry at all really.) So the beans tonight were fancy, baked beans, beans in sauce, even soya sauce, which we haven’t been using at all.
The fast is ten days, so unless I’m figuring it out wrong in my head it heads a week from tomorrow, but for me and my mom, it’ll be ending breakfast monday morning. why? we’ll my dad wanted to take us out for lunch, which he did. I had a chicken caesar wrap and soup (which had a bit of rice in it!) but that’s why we’re extending it for us till breakfast the next day.
And just with the presentation and that everything, I mean look at how much we have, and than look at what little they have compared to here, but they make the best of it.
