Other DR Congo photos

The Flickr web site for photo blogs has thousands of photos for public viewing.  You can even search by "tags" -- key words that the person who uploaded the photo added to identify the photo.  I did a search for DR Congo and found some interesting photos of local people.  Below  are a few links. You can investigate photos on your own too, you know.

Back to Mulungwishi

We had a good flight out to Africa. We flew on the evening of from Denver to London. There was a seven hour layover before our night flight on to Lusaka Zambia. We arrived at 6:30 AM in Lusaka, cleared customs and met up with Ramses, the driver. John and Kendra Enright, missionaries in Ndola, Zambia, had sent him down with a van to pick us up and bring us to their home. Ndola is near to the Congo border. It was about a 5 hour drive. Lori was pretty pooped out from the trip. Since our Congolese exit visas were about to expire, I left her in Zambia on and took the passports to Congo to get new visas. This was accomplished in one day. I then went on up to Mulungwishi to look over the situation and get my classes started. I then returned to Zambia to pick up Lori. We spent a few more days in Zambia in order to buy supplies for ourselves and the Women's School. Lori also had a couple of days where she was bothered by the pancreatitis that she is getting over. So we have just been taking it easy as we move along. John and Kendra have been so kind in their hospitality. We had a good border crossing into Congo and came to Lubumbashi. We have been getting more supplies and money for the schools at Mulungwishi. People are very happy we are back. We leave today to return to Mulungwishi. Please pray for our settling back in, the catching up with our classes and Lori's continued recovery. We love you all and are so glad that you are on our team.
