Today was spent mostly in repair work. Still have a bit to do to get the solar lights on the house up and running. The rest are doing well. Still have to spend quite a bit of money to get the computers all up and running, but the ones in the house are doing fine. Charlini had her fifth birthday and a friend in the states sent her some stuff. We she proud! I doesn't seem like five years since her fifteen year old mother died, but I know it happened because I was there. Charlini is such a joy. We had a staff meeting and everyone seemed to be happy, but we have to remind them not to talk about what goes on in the mission. If they mention they saw a lot of money--even if it was for church construction--we could have robbers thinking about ripping us off. Of course, the fence, the armed security guard, and the three dogs to a good job of keeping us safe. Still raining some every day and no Christmas decorations or any other sign that it's Christmas except in our house. We have a little tree. It works just fine.
