Last Leg of the Journey In

The past five days have been a busy time with traveling and shopping for supplies. Here are a few photos to bring you up to date:

A relaxing evening
After getting settled into our temporary home at Mercy Air and getting our supply shopping done, we managed to spend a beautiful day in Kruger Game Park. Here are a few of the animals we came across.

Okay, these guys aren't really animals, but they were in the park...
"Pretty sure I saw a hippo..."
Now that we've recovered from jet lag, it's time to load up the plane and finish the journey in. Tomorrow morning we fly out to Mozambique where the real work begins.

Some great news is that we met with our electrical supplier today and found that our order will be shipped tomorrow. So within the next week or so, we should have all the electrical supplies needed to put power into the workshop. He has also donated a large number of hand tools for our mechanics and electrical students, for which we are very thankful.

So we leave "civilization" behind, so to speak, and begin our work in the bush. We will update this blog as Internet access permits (always spotty in the African bush), so keep checking back.

Finally, we just wanted Sue and Liz to know that their husbands really do know how to do dishes.

And Bob D has finally found the perfect rock - indoors and big enough to read the paper by. Life is good.
