Today we talked with the German missionaries in Gaeta (about seven hours from here by car if the ferry is working) who are our friends and are trying to start a biosand water filter operation there. The water table there has been ruined by gold mining, so the need is great. We have sent them a mold and instructions, but they are coming this week and bringing a local man to actually build a couple of filters to see how to do it. They will only be here a couple of days, but it will be good to see them again. They have three beautiful, blond haired daughters that seem to like me--I sure like them. Daniel and Steffi are not short timers, but like us, are here until God deems otherwise. I wish they lived closer. I have promised them that the next time Jerry Buckingham is here, he will make the trip to Gaeta to help them. Hope that works out.
