Yesterday I heard two of our sons having a conversation about being famous. One said to the other, "Do you think that the paparazzi would follow us?" and the other one said, "If we are famous enough!"
The thing is, we kind of ARE watched here at times with a paparazzi type frenzy. It seems when Masatepe is too quiet, some people like to create drama. We are a favorite topic of conversation for some people. We have heard all sorts of rumors about us. Some of them are funny, and some are distressing.
How do we deal with this? We are learning to just ignore it and realize that the truth will come out eventually. Our true friends will believe the best of us and those who aren't friends won't. We pray that God will defend us and shut the mouths of the tale-tellers.
