Tomorrow, we start a seven-day, fifteen-hour-a-day, power outage that is nationwide. We can't work our generator that long (too expensive anyway), but we will get by. None of our staff even has power, so they won't feel it all. All the missionaries in Musoma and our Australian friends have gone to Nairobi for the week. That's an option we don't have, but it shouldn't be too bad. The government has announced stuff like this before and then cut back again and again. That's what we hope anyway, but if they don't--we will deal with it. Don't know right now how this will affect our internet, so maybe we can still post using the phone and maybe not. If you don't hear from us, don't panic--it's just Tanzania. Only 14% of the people in Tanzania even have power, but all the banks, businesses, and government have difficulty running without it. It will be interesting to see. Keep us in your prayers.
