hey there, just noticed it's over 3 weeks since the last post, sorry about that, could blame kit on a manner of things but none would be true. well we have our 1st visitors, sarah and hannah who are hopefully having a good time, they enjoy the taxi rides on the backs of the motorbike!! could be a whole new business opportunity in the uk!!
over the last few weeks have been weeks full of new experiences from harvesting maise and groun d nuts, hard work and blisters as well. the young people here couldn't believe i have never done these things before. also as as a family we have helped collect fire wood and water!! the young people collect water every day! life for us is easy,
joel and anya say hi and they are enjoying themselves especially now as they are on holiday as our guests are here. 7.30am assemblies, anyone beat that? i was surprised i could string any words together at that time of day...maybe i didn't!

will write soon, hopefully
tried to add a photo but no!!

hi all, thanks for the comments, nice to know people are reading the blog, at the mo looks like could be updating 0nce maybe twice a week. joel had agreat birthday at weekend and got to play footy pretty much all day, then we watched the england game on a big screen, in the african bush, still same result!! why do we bother even going thro the penalty shoot out!! our freight arrives today?? was meant to be friday but got diverted, who knows where??
life here is becoming normal and certainly getting used to eating beans everday, with pots, chapatis and rice! thankfully the kids love beans.
progress report on our planting for those interested, lettuce and garlic have appeared, COME ON, we are very excited.
the picture is joel sharing his birthday cake with the family group nearest to us.
Question for discussion asked by Joel, "why did God create flies?? answers would be much appreciated, thanks
