A repairman came out and informed us that it was not the igniter. The most probable cause a circuit board issue which he didn't think was repairable. After a few baking excursions to a friend's house in order to use an oven, I realized I would really like to have one in my home that works. :-)
However, this recent life without an oven reminded me of my time in Ghana. In the pictures below I am making some food for Overcomer. I'm cooking over a fire on the back porch of the home where he lives. The dish called 'fufu' reminds me of wet play-dough, but Overcomer loves it! I'm sure I'll be making more here when he comes home.
Reid started the task of price-comparison for a new gas oven/stove. When we realized most were priced over $1000+, we were in sticker-shock. With our looming travel costs ahead, we were concerned about this additional unexpected expenditure. Parting with the cash would hurt, but somehow we prayed God would replace it. Reid found one for $800, so we took a deep breath and placed the order.
And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19
Why do I not believe this verse?
And the congregation of those who believed were of one heart and soul; and not one of them claimed that anything belonging to him was his own, but all things were common property to them.
And with great power the apostles were giving testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and abundant grace was upon them all.
For there was not a needy person among them, for all who were owners of land or houses would sell them and bring the proceeds of the sales
and lay them at the apostles' feet, and they would be distributed to each as any had need.
