Turning Lemons into Lemonade

Team Prayer
 Last week turned out to be a tense week when fighting broke out between two tribes in our community. With unrest around us, our team stayed on our compounds and the clinic and school were closed down until things calmed down. After a few days we were beginning to feel a little stir crazy but we found some things to stay occupied. One of the things we did a lot of was pray. We prayed as a family and we prayed as a team. God answered and we're thankful that this week seems to be heading back to "normal".

Donut making
 Eli's birthday arrived in perfect timing - giving us an excuse to gather for fun and yummy homemade donuts.


Crazy Card Playing

 
On Eli's birthday, things were calmed down enough that he and the boys went on a bike ride to the river for a swim.
 

 One hot day a water fight was just the thing to keep the kids busy!
