A long week

Everytime I sit down to begin blogging about our incredible safari roadtrip, it seems something new happens and competes for my limited thinking-time. How much I would love to see you all face to face to tell you all of this LONG week!

Do I start with the month-long trip with all its miracles? Or the earthquake (more or less a non-event btw)? Or how I ended up at the hospital clinic being treated for malaria and giardia Monday? Or how Saturday we needed to drive a friend to the same hospital with serious typhoid? Or how we were privileged to attend the local university graduation ceremonies on Friday? Or how Anna is wearing pink shorts, with a pink bow in her hair, a pink shirt with pink hearts, even a pink diaper cover and yelling with glee that she found a pink Bible? (Okay maybe that last one isn't anything very new and can wait a bit.)

Today's sermon title was, "Why does God let his people suffer?" out of Daniel 6. And we returned home to news that one of the ladies I knew from Bible Study in Nairobi had just been widowed at my age (her husband is a pilot and was killed yesterday in a bizarre crash). She is homeschooling their 4 children. Please pray for them.

So it's been a long week. We have guests coming into town tomorrow for 2 days. And I'm not quite sure where to start blogging, so I'll start by saying we are well and mostly back to normal health (I finish my course of quinine tomorrow). As soon as I have the energy and find the water-logged camera, you will get a 'real' post. There's my long week. Sounds like some of you had a long HOT week! Stay cool and stay tuned...
