Leaving at 7 am tomorrow...thankful for another night in my nice bed.

Success, I manage to carry my post all the way on my head and only stopped for a brief rest once. Wow the difference water makes. Being by the river, we walked through the palms as the path twisted here and there. The post sticking out in front of me made it even more interesting as I almost got stuck in some branches at one point.

Work is done for today, so now we all join together under the trees for some rest and shade while the training and teaching is happening (Farming God's Way and a CHE lesson about development versus relief). Praying that the people here will truly understand the blessing God has giving them and will glorify him through their ownership of this farm and all it produces.
|Onions I bought for 20 bob (about 30 cents)|

It is good to spend more time with the house help Nawoyarot and her boys, Isaac, John and Kevin. I work on pronunciation with my note cards and have them repeat the English pronunciation with me to help me learn the words. The boys are so cute and love this game, however, I realized that they will not always correct my poor Turkana pronunciations like their mom will, so I listen closely for her voice nearby to correct me.
