This morning Kyle, Kelsey, Anne, Amanda, and Robbie
helped out in the classrooms while teachers attended a funeral....quite an
Yvonne, Logan, Bill and Kathie went shopping for camping
supplies for Kibindu. One of the women at the school is at the market now
buying most of our food...and the food we will be sharing. Since it is Ramadan,
we will not be cooking for a large group, but we will give each family who comes
to the clinic some rice and potatoes to take home.
The lorry is getting two new batteries and is having some welding done on the front bumper and the bus is getting a tune up. By the time we arrive at St. Augustine's at about 7 AM tomorrow, the lorry should (maybe) be loaded and we will be all set to go. We think there will be 18 to 20 of us but we won't know until we start driving down the road!
Everyone is all set for adventure. Our food will be simple and
bland but nourishing: groundnuts, rice, potatoes, carrots, onions, beans,
chapati, mandazi, fruit, tea and coffee. We have three tents, mats (not for
everyone), lightweight sleeping bags, and just the essentials in clothing and
toiletries and we will e bringing 20 plastic chairs.....and hopefully a table or
two. Think we are just about all ready. What we need now is a total covering of
prayer. God has led us this far and He ill see us through!
Blessings to you all.....
