"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

Seem to be feeling a little isolated and lonely lately :-(

Seems reasonable I suppose. We had almost four months of constant activity and people here. That doesn't count the two months leading up to it of getting supplies and everything else done to get ready for them. Then of course there were the three or four months before that when we were just trying to finish the house, get the school ready for and pick the first 12 students, and get business done and...

And now we are up here on the hill alone. Originally the thought was that all the American staff would have homes up near we are; that's why Brian picked this spot. Obviously we are too big of a family to live in a two room staff house, so we would have had to build no matter what. But if we would have known other staff were going to live in the staff houses around the main campus, we would have built on the other side of Little Kazemba, just down from the shop and been a little closer.

Anyway, so in being up here, we don't see anyone else except John some days (or so it seems). Most people have to have a purpose for coming this far up. Yes, we do the same thing I guess, we have to have a purpose for going down to see people too. I just don't like that it seems the only thing anyone, including us, goes back and forth is for now is business.
