Visit map stats

Sample data for visits from cities in a country.
The world map in the right sidebar links to some interesting information. Try this:
  1. Click on the map
  2. Click on the "twirlie" to the right of a country flag
  3. See how many visits came from what places in that country
The ClustrMap also lists the 10 most recent visits, in chronological order.

And last, but not least, if you click on a region in the large map, you get a close-up view of that region.

Back in Congo

We had a good trip up from Zambia to day. There was a little hassle at the border, but we got through without any problems.

Nkonde did the driving.

We will drive up to Mulungwishi on Friday so we will be there for graduation on Saturday.

Lori doing OK after scare

David and Lori have been travelling throughout the US visiting long-time supporters. They stayed with us for a few wonderful days, then headed to New York, then on to more stops.

On the way back to Denver, though, Lori complained of chest pains, so they stopped at the Dallas-Forth airport. A local ER near Dallas-Fort Worth airports found pneumonia near her heart, which had caused the pains.

Luckily they were able to stay with Baptist missionary friends (whom that had originally met in Zambia, it seems) until Lori could travel to Denver. Lori is on the mend, but can always use prayer.

Both David and Lori covet your prayers that they might return to DR Congo in July. Right now travel looks booked until August.
