A Few Busy Weeks

Posted on August 28th, 2012

We were in Gabs in July for a marriage conference that we co-taught with Fielden and Janet Allison!  What fun we had and what a great group of married folks to work with from the Broadhurst Church of Christ!  Wow! Blew our socks off to see such strong Christian families!  Praise God!

Then the Allisons came home with us and stayed a week and we had so much fun showing them our town and work.  We also went across to Vic Falls and did some more work on the conference that we are co-hosting with them in Sept. 2013. 

Meanwhile, Keith was elected to the Flying Mission Board and was flown down to Gaborone for the first meeting.

Janelle Avery and her friend Nancy Howard arrived from the US. They borrowed the car for 2 weeks to visit the orphanage that Allen (died of cancer 2 years ago) and Janelle started.

After they left, we had a family from Angola, Robert and Teague Meyer and sons.  Teague went to Harding with Amy.  She and Robert adopted two sweet boys from Ethiopia!  I forgot what it is like to have little ones underfoot, but they were so much fun.  They were going to leave on Saturday but due to a little accident stayed an extra day, so we had them here when Nancy and Janelle showed up for the last two nights.  It was a houseful but fun!

As soon as Nancy and Janelle left, literally the same day, we took off for a week camping with friends from Gabs.  Whew!  It was nice to get into the bush and just relax.  We went to the Makgadikgadi Pans and saw lots of wildlife.  The Botete River was also in flood so that was a first for us as when we were here before it was dry!

We are now home and getting ready to jump back into ministry!  I have a teacher-in-service workshop to do at Elise's school and at a government school.  My tutoring load will pick up again and Keith is always meeting people who want to start a study! 

Today, we got a call from BTC (Botswana Telecoms) that they want to put up poles so we can have internet at the house.  So I ran down and paid a deposit!  It will be so nice because we will be able to skype at night (your day) from our house!  PTL!
