We have been in
2 weeks today. On Sunday, Nov. 20, we came out to Karanda after having completed a grocery shopping trip to last a month. Dontie was exhausted after going to a dairy shop (called the Cheeseman), butcher, fruit and veggie mart, and finally a grocery store. The car was filled to the brim and Dontie hoped she had not underestimated the family needs on her list. Zimbabwe

It is really hot here. Thankfully, the electricity has been more consistent out here, and we have been able to sit in front of fans to find some relief. Cold showers feel good too! We’ve had a couple of days of short soft rains and we are praying along with the surrounding villagers for more drenching rains.
Christopher is learning the ins and outs of the hospital as well as trying to learn names of the staff. There is a lot to do and people come all the way from
to be treated at Karanda because of its care. Dontie and the boys have been discovering all kinds of interesting creatures that live in and around the guesthouse (where we are staying until our house is ready). These include various large spiders, gekos, blueheaded lizards, storks (in a tree right outside our door), guinea fowl, and goats. Harare

Our presence is certainly known by all. We pray that it is a presence that brings glory to God. Please continue to pray for our nesting and adjusting. We are thankful for all of you who make it possible to do what we are doing! Happy Thanksgiving!
