About three hours ago I was able to connect to the internet from my home after 61 days of waiting. Since moving to Capitan Miranda, 30 min away, from Obligado my previous place of residency, I have been making some adjustments. I won’t tell you the very long story filled with disappointments, long calls and frequent trips to the internet provider to Encarnacion, our state capital.
This time my patience was pushed to the limit, since a lot of the way I communicate is by internet. I have even considered my waiting for the internet as one of Gods test to develop more of the fruit of the spirit. During a sermon a week ago, I shared how this issue was really stretching my niceness.
I have been logging on from my phone to answer urgent emails and once a week drove to the public library and occasionally to a public café. Since I was dealing with Copaco, the government internet provider, I knew things would be slow, but not this slow.
Hopefully for the rest of this year and beyond I will never have to wait 61 days to get a decent internet connection. I know some of you missionaries who work in the deep bush don’t have access to the internet. So I truly apologize if I am complaining.
I think though that for most of the civilized world does not wait that long for these services anymore.
So guess what I will do this weekend……download all kinds of stuff and leave my computer connected just for the fun of it. I am really due, for some serious catching up online.
Just thought I will share with you. . .
