Well, it’s been a while so here is an update of what is happening.
Firstly, the biggest news of the moment is that Ava is in Tainan for a while. She went back the weekend before last on the 26th of November. She hadn’t felt very well and needed a break from just everything. When she goes home she can pretty much just take it easy. She is feeling better now and is going to be coming back this Saturday morning. It’s been quite something with her being away for such a long time, which is something that hasn’t happened since we got married. She has stopped working altogether and will continue to go to her University to study and see how that goes.
The doctors told Ava that she really needs some rest. When she went to Tainan they did some checks and found a build-up of Calcium or something of that nature on the umbilical cord. They were concerned about the child’s well-being. Anyways, prayer does the trick as God knows far more than any doctor ever could, being the designer of us in the first place. So we’re looking forward faithfully to a healthy little baby girl around about May next year.
Secondly, the 40 days of purpose website is now dormant. It was a real blessing being able to do that website and hopefully a blessing for those who joined up for the daily updates from the site. You can still check it out now at http://pdl.peterandava.com
Thirdly, last month was a great month for http://computer-reviews.net It managed to make a lot more money than it did the month before. Things are building with that and I have actually now got a few writers on the line from http://elance.com to do some articles. It’s not the cheapest thing to have done, but if I can sink a little money into that, keeping the site growing, and then focus my attention on promotion, things should build to a point where I can start branching out and looking at other stuff online to do. It still doesn’t make enough money for me to live off, but it is a positive step, as it reinforces my confidence that it will work. The eventual aim is to develop streams of income so in essence the websites can be run with only a little intervention from me and eventually none at all.
School remains busy and things just go by day to day as usual. Christmas is coming up so everyone is getting lost in the talk of Santa Claus and putting gifts under trees and stuff. The one thing that hit me is that even though Christ in Christmas is almost lost here, still things like the star on the top of the tree don’t get a second look, whereas it actually has some meaning to it. Time to break out those stories of the nativity.
Also, another call for those who are interested in you own website. I have opened http://ublog2.com so you just click on the link on the main page and you can sign up for your own website. You can put pictures in your posts and there are a whole range of themes to choose from to give your site that custom look.
On another great note, which I might have mentioned before, my parents are coming to Taiwan. Of all the people who could come and visit me I honestly didn’t expect them to be the first ones. So there you are. They’ ll be coming at the beginning of February of thereabouts, just after the Chinese New Year holiday. That’s a good thing as being the only major holiday of the year, its a nightmare to go anywhere within Taiwan or anywhere in Asia for that matter.
So that’s Peter for the meantime, I hope you are all doing well, it’s good to hear from those who send emails. I try to reply as often as I can especially to individual emails. God Bless and don’t forget why this is the season to be jolly.
