My wrong number phone call yesterday was to Kelly Nichols who is one of the Bible translators who had swine flu. After she ordered three more biosand filters, she told me that all of the translators who got sick had been to a conference in Kenya at the Rift Valley Academy just outside Nairobi. Some of the people from Nairobi had swine flu confirmed at the hospitals there. All the Bible translators are doing fine now, but it was a bit scary since several have small children. I don't particularly like it when bad stuff from the headlines shows up in my back yard. Of course, since my back yard is really the Serengeti National Park, there is already four-legged bad stuff out there--not to mention the snakes and tse tse flies. Still . . .
