“Those who are happiest are those who do the most for others.” ― Booker T. Washington
The Australian mission team is here and they are a very good group. In fact, I have yet to meet an Australian who was not friendly, warm, caring, and giving. I'm sure there are some out there somewhere, but all of the Australians I have met here fall into the wonderful category. They got in yesterday, had dinner and a Bible study at the Anglican Center and then came here for sleep. This morning, they were up early (eating around 7:00 A.M.) and then were off to work for the day. Well, they were off once they got the car started on the third time they pushed it. This is Africa and the car has been used by the Anglicans here for at least two decades, so a push here and there is just to be expected. They are doing construction work on the Bible College and working to build and expand Boy Guide groups which is an Anglican "Boy Scouts" kind of thing but with heavy emphasis on Christian teachings. There are also many "Girl Guide" groups here as well. We will see them again late in the day when they come back for showers and cold sodas before going up to the Anglican Center for a meal and Bible Study. There will be two more coming in a couple of days, so we will have eight here. I feel like I already have some new friends. I hope they feel the same way.
