The house now has, I think, 24 or 26 kids. They will be arriving by bus on Friday. Things will begin popping then. I can’t wait.
Marinka is such a wonderful person. She has been most accommodating, even though we have asked her note to pamper us. We told her that we do not want to be any trouble and take away her time from her preparation for the kids. They arrive here Friday.
A photographer has been commissioned to take a photo of each child for the records. I will be asking for copies for us. Each child and staff will wear photo name tags for identification purposes.
The staff (including the missionaries, that would be us) are to have a meeting today with Hudu (the House Manager) to review the rules and regulations as stipulated in the Constitution. Jane is the newly hired matron over the girls. I haven’t met the man that has been hired to look after the boys. He is scheduled to be here today some time.
David, you are right, I will need to slow down my internal clock and adjust it to Africa time. I think I could get used to this pace of live.
The cable TV installer was scheduled for Monday. We haven’t seen him or heard from him. Marinka has looked almost everywhere for a router to have wi-fi through out the property, but there is not a router in the entire country. I wouldn’t matter anyway, since the cable guy hasn’t shown. I have been provided with a cellular modem to use until we get wi-fi.
Well, I had better close for now and fix my bride (who has finally risen from her beauty rest) some breakfast.
I’ll keep you informed as things develop.
