Quote of the Day:   Nine-tenths of our sickness can be prevented by right thinking plus right hygiene - nine-tenths of it! -- Henry Miller

Second day went better than the first.  John taught nutrition today and for the first time, taught the whole thing in Swahili which pleased the women very much.  Very proud of John.  Karen stayed in the house today and Alice carried the ball by herself except for John's two hours.  She has been doing a super job.  If she does nothing else, she has succeeded immeasurably, but she has a lot more planned--including another two day seminar.  Today the ladies (and a few men) got a treated, jumbo mosquito net to take home which will probably save more than one life.  The food has been good, the spirits have been high, and the women have been treated with respect and honor.  For most of them, not having to cook and getting two good hot meals was worth the price of admission (free, by the way).  All the costs of these seminars have been paid by donations from Alice's church back in South Carolina.  Thank you very much and God bless all who support the Great Commission.  There are six more pictures to see if you click on the one at the right, including Alice preaching.
