Quote of the Day: The development of a really good marriage is not a natural process. It is an achievement. - David and Vera Mace
Things are back to normal--for us. Edina is out with malaria, Juliana is out sick with dysentery, and Francis is out for the funeral of a neighbor. John and Shaban went to Musoma today where the bank ate my ATM card, but John came home with a new tablet computer and phone combination from China that they are going to sell here for $300 each. Tomorrow, they will start building the first permanent soccer goal next to the church and hopefully we will have our staff back up to strength. Birthdays are not celebrated in this culture, but wedding anniversaries are a big deal indeed. The staff all came in to say "Hongera" or congratulations. We showed them our wedding picture and they thought we were skinny because we were sick. I do love this culture, and my wife of 47 years today. Hard to believe that when she asked me to go with her on a hayride in 1964 that it would ultimately lead us to Africa together. Glad it did.
