Mosquito Attract-o

August 19th, 2006


All of the sudden, without warning, the mosquitoes took over the camp on Tuesday.  We woke up, and there they were–you could barely eat breakfast because you had to stop and swat every few seconds.  At first we couldn’t figure out where they were coming from, and then we remembered–Monday, one of the men here finally hooked up the Mosquito Delete-o.

The Mosquito Delete-o is a contraption hooked to a propane tank which is supposed to kill mosquitoes.  It’s been sitting around camp for months, and none of us have figured out how to get the darn thing working. Until Monday, when someone did.  We didn’t think much about it–you know, how it works or anything–until the mosquitoes took over the camp.  Pam realized that the Mosquito Delete-o calls the mosquitoes to it in order to kill them.  And… it was sitting right next to the shower trailer on the campsite!

On Thursday I reached my breaking point when one bit me on the face.  I had the guy who turned it on promptly turn it off.

The mosquitoes are much better now.  😉

    That’s funny, unless you are the one getting bit. I’ve heard the same thing about beetle traps. The gardening guy on the radio said to give the trap to your neighor.

    Hey, you guys have been elevated to the status of Joshua House legends, I think. I did not hear your names mentioned for 100% certain, but, as I was out in the lobby, I heard Eric talking about a couple and their experiences down in NOLA……and, unless you have some rivals down there, it must have been you. Since this is the second time in the past month or so that you have been specifically used as a godly example in a JH sermon, I think that I can safely say that your status as “heroes of the faith” has been cemented. My only question is, what will the preacher down there say during that portion of his sermon when he is ripping off Eric’s teaching of the week? It might present somewhat of a quandry for the poor guy. :-) Any way, much love, guys – you continue to be in our prayers!

    Faithfully yours in Christ,
