What a fast-pace never-stop few days we've had. From home on Saturday at 11:45, landing in Johannesburg on Sunday at 5:45, then leaving J today qat 9:00 a.m, arriving here in Shayandima at 6:00 tonight....We've had dinner, our mission team meeting, and now off to shower and get ready for bed.
Brad and Hazel Palmer are so hospitable and working hard to make us feel at home, half-way across the world from home. I'm looking forward to one more good night of sleep before the real work begins tomorrow.
We're going to be working the school, painting at Aunty Lydia's orphans' home, taking the children who live with Aunty Lydia shopping for clothes will all of the money that was donated, and helping feed over 100 orphans on Friday.
The internet connection in the computer room is not currently working, some trouble with the phone lines, so, for now, I'm not sure when we'll be able to post again. I have lots of pictures to share, just don't know if I will be able to do so from here.
Caleb, Brandon, Whitney, and Ellie, please kiss each other and tell one another it's from Mama. All of you kiss your daddy for me, and go kiss Grandma and Grandpa.
Josie-Tatum says, "Hello. We're having loads of fun, but keep praying. It's much colder than we thought, but we're told a cold front has come through." Hazel says it's unusually cold.
We've seen our first ostrich in the wild, banana farms, macadamia nut farms, and been totally confused by the traffic all on the wrong side of the road. I look forward to the sunshine in the morning. I admit I feel a little homesick every time it gets dark.
Thank you for all of your prayers. Please keep them coming.!
