Today is John's 34th birthday, and we celebrated with cake and with teaching the staff to say "Happy Birthday" in English. Karen was able to go into town for cake mix in a taxi since neither of us are strong enough to drive. We did hear from Rev. Monto that the pastor we helped made it to the Congo and is starting a church with the Bibles we gave him. Rev. Monto said the pastor was very happy for the gift of the Bibles as are we for those of you who gave them and keep giving them. I know it may be hard to believe, but it is very hot here. Thank God for shade and electric fans (if the power is on). We are rescheduling our trip to Magu because we are not strong enough to make the journey yet. Hopefully, we can get there on Sunday the 14th.
