So many books have been written about life in Africa.  Real life adventures of legendary figures like Fredrick Courtney Selous or the exploits of the great ivory hunters make for stimulating reading.  Such nostalgia from by-gone days seems almost fictional.

Our Sunday

Sunday we worshiped with the Monduli Juu congregation, which is located in..you guessed it…Monduli Juu.  We’ve worshiped with them once before, right before going on furlough, and have wanted to return.  The membership of the congregation is primarily Massai.

George and Jacob Left on a Jet Plane…I Headed to the Bush

Young Massai Women

The last couple of weeks have been particularly busy.  Earlier last week, George and Jacob came down with bad colds.  George was feeling very badly, with many symptoms of malaria, and I ended up driving him to the local hospital that night to be checked.  The test was negative, but the Dr. thought it would . . . → Read More: George and Jacob Left on a Jet Plane…I Headed to the Bush

Sharpening Our Focus

On the one hand, it hardly seems possible that we have been living in Tanzania for two years! On the other, Africa has truly become home to us, and we are accustomed to life as it is here. These two years have provided many opportunities for us to learn . . . → Read More: Sharpening Our Focus
