Today, we broke ground for the new education facility. Mama Africa (Karen) and her new class all participated. We had a full day of pastor/evengelist training, and the thatching on Martha's Place continues. If the rains hold off, we will finish Martha's Place next week. We are also putting new locks on the new doors of the guest cottages and are continuing repairs on our seemingly endless plumbing problems. Very few homes have plumbing, so we don't complain--we just keep fixing things. Karen and John have some kind of stomach bug, but whatever it is, it wasn't something I ate because I'm fine. It's just one of the occupational hazards of living here. We are looking forward to Martha's family coming to visit January 1st. A good way to bring in the new year.
