1) It's very hot - by mid afternoon I'm pretty washed out. It's about 33 -35 degrees. The rains will come soon, so it will cool down and the dust will turn to red mud!
2) New Swahili lesssons. Anthony, the Diocesan computer expert, who comes from Kenya, has agreed to come every day for an hour or so to help us with our Swahili. This is so great - he's gentle and patient, and encouraging even when we look blank and talk rubbish! We had reached a bit of a block, and he is just the right person for us. I've started being able to pray aloud in Swahili, getting over a bad lack of confidence, and working on the principle that God will understand whatever!
3) I'm busy at college with the student teaching and my women's English class, as well as lots of admin.
I will update more often - but would love to write about things you may be interested in... please email or post ideas for subjects, or questions about life here that you'd like me to answer.

Family news : Pete and Cat announced their engagement last weekend. We're thrilled for them, and it seems we'll be home for the wedding next Summer. And our grandson Zach is 1 today! It's at times like this that we feel very far from home, and despite all that is good here we have our home sick moments.
