School is in session again
I went over to school on opening day. I wanted to take a few pictures of some of our
church kids arriving at school. I was mobbed. Everyone wanted their picture taken, and in the time
it took to get organised for one photo, I had 60-75 kids in front of me, all asking for their photo to
be taken, too.
A big thank you to some of you who have sponsored these kids to go to school. It has made a big difference
in their lives. Several of them would not be able to go at all without outside financial help.
(School is not expensive, it is $10 a month, but that is very expensive if you only make $90 a month as a family. Most families have 2-5 kids...)
Have you ever seen this? Our lonely orphan kitten has adopted Lulu (our dog) as mom.
Lulu gave birth recently to one puppy, but evidently has milk to spare.
Have you ever seen a kitten nurse on a dog?
Now you have...
Can you do this?
Four on a motorbike to go to school?
Lisa is away on a trip. She & her mom are spending a special time together in Germany. They've joined a bus tour, and will have a short time to spend together. We're really glad that Lisa will have this time with her mom, and pray that the trip will be rejuvinating for both of them.
Meanwhile, in Kadiolo, Tom is baching with Caleb & Ben. Yesterday was Mali's independance day. Tom & the boys went to watch the Kadiolo league finals in Soccer. We had a great time together.
Pray for us as Tom tries a temporary hand at single parenting. :-)
We're also continuing to work on Bambara, pray for patience, and perserverance.
It takes a lot of visiting, a lot of work. A lot of saying things wrong...
Thanks for stopping by...
Tom & Lisa
