A day away from work

my little friend Dennis
A more relaxed day today. Nursing babies, and listening to talented african dancers and singers compete in a local competition.  The building was packed with about 5000 people crammed into the church building on site here. People were also hanging out of trees outside so they could see the performance. The judges were George (exodus) ,gospel singer from Kampala and his mates, Titus, Jimmy and Gilbert. There were some pretty impressive displays of gymnastics and creativity from the young people in this recovering war zone. 
Tonight for tea we went to the chief administrators house and were treated to cooked antelope and warthog among other delicacies !  His wife Winnie also specialises in a superb fresh guava juice.  There was alos some major excitment in the house as we watched the soccer match between Uganda and Kenya being televised!

Doc Laurel and I also spent some time evaluating our experiences today and preparing some written recommendations for Irene and JP next week regarding the health project here.  Please pray for a sense of unity in purpose and direction. There are many challenges .

JP has an electrified tennis racquet to swat and frizzle nasty malaria carrying mosquitos !
