Isaac and Evan's new friend

Last week a new family joined our team here in Yabus. They are from Nigeria and have come to help teach at the secondary school. The funnest part is that they have two children. Praise is their 3 year old boy who has quickly become like a brother to Isaac and Evan. They play together non stop every day.

Back to Work

I started construction on the bridge again this past week. It has been pretty exciting. God is showing us the generosity of His people through this project. We have 60 people working right now, including 22 women. We are building the towers and collecting stone for construction. Enjoy the photos of our tower going up, collecting sand from a dry river bed, and a Mabaan lady collecting stones for our construction.

Eating out in Yabus town

On Saturday, we braved the river and crossed with the truck to go to town for lunch. It was fun to see friends and enjoy lunch at the "W" Hotel where a group of about 16 other men were eating lunch. We enjoyed bowls of Egyptian beans with fresh bread and cold sodas.

Josh gets a taste of "real" food

We started Joshua on rice cereal this week since he always seems hungry. Today I took some leftover cereal from the fridge and wished I had a microwave to heat it up. Instead I sat it outside in the sun. When I went to check it less than 5 minutes later, it was warm! Who needs a microwave when the hot Sudan sun does the same thing?
