It's an understatement to say we've been having some power and generator problems, but we are getting by--as we always do. The wonderful thing is that an old friend and former church member from my church in Boston found us on the internet, got in touch, and wants to help with our mission. It was like a burst of sunshine here in the middle of the rainy season. I'm sure you will hear more about this later. We also have had internet problems, but Shaban and John went up to the internet tower at Manyamanyama and fixed it themselves. That's what the pictures are of today. The tower is about a hundred feet tall and both of them climbed halfway up. Not me. We are surrounded by churches here and for the last two days and for the next two, we have been and will be surrounded by wonderful choir music. Easter here has no eggs, no bunnies, and no chocolate. It is just a four-day celebration of the most incredible sacrifice that led to the salvation of millions, even me. I wish you all the true spirit of Easter and may the meaning of the resurrection truly fill you as you worship tomorrow. Everyone who has supported us has helped what Christ started here in Africa where everyone around us is filled with the hope He provided. God bless you all.
