Riverpointe Mission team visits

We were blessed to have a team come from Houston, Riverpointe Church, to work with us over the past week. They prepared several dramas to share in the villages where we work. They also spend a morning at the orphanage near our home, playing with the kids, eating cupcakes together, and loving on the kids. It was truly a blessing and encouragement for us to spend this time with them. I'll post more photos soon.

Kruger Photos

Over the weekend, we ended up getting delayed at the border due to some car issues (long story!), so spent an unexpected--and very restful--day in the game park. Here are some of the highlights from the weekend. We are now in South Africa for some doctor appointment, car stuff, and other errands, before picking up a team who will be working with us in Mozambique on a short mission trip.

House Update

A lot of people have been asking about the house, so I finally have something to share! While the city works out some zoning issues, we were asked to stop construction several weeks ago, but they did give us permission to pour the roof slab. We are hoping that we will be able to finish the rest of the house soon, but are thrilled that this is finished as it is a huge job. It took about forty workers, sixteen straight hours, and four cooks to keep them all going!
