"This life therefore, is not godliness but the process of becoming godly, not health but getting well, not being but becoming, not rest but exercise. We are not now what we shall be, but we are on the way. The process is not yet finished, but it is actively going on. This is not the goal, but it is the right road. At present, everything does not gleam and sparkle, but everything is being cleansed." --Martin Luther

Another group come and gone. What an amazing time! It blows me away how much these teams minister to us when we are here to serve them and make sure everything is going okay for them and do they need anything. And yet they continue to bless us. It was a lot of fun having the groups from Iowa and Georgia here. These guys really liked having a good time and they did. Justin and Bill made us a bathroom vanity. It is amazing. These guys put a lot of time and effort into it and I can not thank them enough. I had been planning on building something for some time but just had not gotten to it and didn’t know when I would with everything else going on. Speaking of everything else, the library is ready for a roof now. The Georgia group knocked that out and have it ready. It was neat to see. On the last day the 2 Iowa groups pulled off their work sites to go help finish off what they could at the library. It was 3 different churches represented but you wouldn’t know it. It was a body of believers working together.
Enchoka (snake) update: it has been a busy year so far. Never has there been this many snakes during teams. During this group there were 4 killed: 2 black mambas, 1 cobra, 1 puff adder. We ate the puff adder, I cooked it up. (oh yeah-the big 7 footer was a BLACK mamba, not green. Didn’t think there were black ones up here, but I guess there are!) There were a few of the team that tried the snake, but none of the Zambians. I didn’t kill any of these, so my personal tally still stands at 5 sizable snakes and dozens of baby cobras. The baby ones are no bigger then a night crawler. The 5 have been a black mamba, green mamba, spitting cobra, puff adder, and some sort of tree snake that is very poisonous. No pythons yetJ.
