The group is on its way home and will be back in the U.S. tomorrow. We did nothing today but clean and rest. It is way too quiet around here now. The staff was asking why we were speaking so differently, and I tried to explain about southern dialects. It'll wear off, but it was fun while it lasted. What a great group. Ruth, Wayne, and their granddaughter, Molly were terrific--hard workers and never a word of complaint about anything, always ready to adapt to the changing ways of Africa. Gary, Marty, their son, Jason, and his daughter, Corbyn, were a true gift to us as well. Jason also worked very hard, Marty got to sing with Karen, and Corbyn impressed us all with her art. They can all come back anytime they want. Those of you who know and love them, keep them surrounded with your prayers, and I hope you appreciate all that they do.
