Hello everyone! Sorry I haven’t written for a while. Partly just very busy and partly about settling into a bit more of a daily routine that doesn’t have quite as many new exciting adventures as our first 4 months in Africa. Our whole PC group just got together for a week of training and for the most part we really enjoyed catching up with our new friends and hearing all the stories.
As of the end of this training, we are all now officially allowed to travel pretty much where and when we wish. So, we are looking forward to some short weekend trips to various places within reach such as Johannesburg, South Africa and maybe the beautiful beaches of Namibia. Aaron is coming to visit us in August and we are very much looking forward to that.
We are still very happy here and our jobs are starting to really develop into serious missions with endless tangents. We are so appreciated here by everyone and the gratification of all of this is not really expressible. My only complaint at the moment is the heat. 110 all day and 85 or so at night, but our tin roof house is a virtual oven during the day with no where for the heat to go, so even with three fans (the fans just blow hot air on us), it is 5:00 am each day before the place gets below 100. That is about an hour after the 20 roosters start crowing just meters outside our open windows. So sleeping is pretty miserable.
Other than that, we love it here and are quite content for now!
Ok, here’s the real reason for this POST! The Superbowl is coming up this Sunday in the US. (I heard the Bears almost made it! HA HA) It is showing here at 1:30 am to 4:30 am on Monday morning, and only a few places in the country (probably the entire continent!) are showing it and it will cost us a fortune to stay at a hotel to see it. So, the good news is that is it being re-shown again on Monday night at 9:00 pm our local time so we get to go watch it! Yippee! I have missed every single game this season and am sorely depressed about that!
So here’s my SERIOUS request!
PLEASE DONT SPOIL IT FOR ME WITH ANY INFO ABOUT IT!
