Judy, going with our buyer to shop for fabric to cover some couch and chair cushions
She was wearing Jim’s hi-visibility helmet. Most people don’t wear helmets, but if they do its likely to be a skateboarding helmet… 
Jim’s new office door.
He finally made up some signage.
Its good to be in both French and English.  Yes, I have been told that I used the incorrect spelling for Open in French. Someday, I might even fix it.
Of course he has to say something funny, even if it is true. Not everything gets translated. American humor does not translate into African culture.
Judy and friend, Elaine, one of the three teachers at the school for missionary kids. It has grades 1 – 8, in a four room school house. About 25 kids total. If you want to teach over seas, here is a great place.
Yes, we had another dust storm. This is the window ledge just outside the window, but the windows don’t seal well. It was almost as dusty inside. It covered everything.
Playing soccer in our first rain.
We lost two very large trees and 100’s of branches broke off. It took 5 full time staff a week to clean it up. We don’t have any power saws. All of it was cut by hand saws and axes. At least the staff has a lot of fire wood for cooking and brick making. Yes, if they want to build there own house, they must make their own bricks first. Another great blog report.
This is one random blog write up. But… as I say, “Something is better than nothing”. We’ll do better next time.
