Eulogy Postponed

And the miracle of today

Baby cow and sun dried bricks

Since Kelly (the other African Road director with Lori) has gotten here and we did a whirlwind tour of the sites yesterday. Good tidings all around. There is a brand new baby calf at Togetherness Farm. New Destiny Women’s Coop showed off their embroidery skills. Stephen’s house has been under construction and everything is looking great! (In case you’re not following the African Road Blog- they just received donations for a new house where all his 19 kids fit relatively well)! The bricks on most houses are baked meaning they must be painted regularly to keep them from washing away which had not been done for some time. All the old was chiseled away, repaired and repainted. Looks like new, but contractors here are no different than America, it seems. The cost keeps rising! Rwanda has no building codes which make for some interesting looking houses.

It looks great. How much of it would you like me to have them put on your custom order tablecloth?

And now we’re finishing packing up before flying out of Kigali into Kenya!!! Hello, elephant country! I may have to go muzungo and pay for a car to take me out and find some elephants.

In case you can't read that, it says Kigali International Airport. The reason it's hard to read, other than my unsteady hand, is the fact that the electricity went out...

We land in Nairobi this afternoon. Don’t worry, I will not do any shopping in the cheap, local markets.

Which should reassure you.

But if it doesn’t, Thank you for your prayers, intentions, good thoughts and blessings as we begin this part of the journey.
