We have internet!

Hallelujah! Will wonders never cease! We are on the internet from our living room! Can you believe it? Thanks to Joe Barnes who came out on a team in June of 2008 and our local computer expert, Cedrick, we can receive internet at the house! Amazing! Of course to keep us humble, this only happens when the generator is on! The airconditioning unit the team installed in the computer server room was hooked up and working prior to the transformer blowing. Now it is in the same position as when the team came. No electricity, no airconditioning. Keep praying.

Mulungwishi Rain Dance

Catching rain from a downspoutWe are doing a rain dance at Mulungwishi! Since we have no electricity, our water pump is not functioning. We praise the Lord that we are in the rainy season. So every time it rains, we run out with our buckets to collect the water coming off the roof. This is known as the Mulungwishi Rain Dance.

Highs and lows

Green, green everywhere. Thousands of different shades and hues brilliant against the blue skies and white billowing clouds. It is good to also feel and smell the rain.

We are still in Lubumbashi after days of car work and now the Leadership Masters Class. We hope to go with tow of the visiting professors of Leadership to Mulungwishi on Thursday.

Guess what! Again the train company let the small transformer blow. So we are without electricity! So pray!

In Congo

Drove up Sunday to Congo from Zambia. Had a little trouble at the border but got through without having much problem.

We are in Lubumbashi where David started on a leadership training semianr for teachers for the next 4 days. Probably head up to Mulungwishi early next week.

Thanks for the prayers.
