What a fun day we had yesterday! After breakfast, we walked into town to look about. While we were eating at Ozzie's (a restaurant owned by Mama Jude, a retired missionary from Australia full of personality), all the preschoolers from Amani came by to get a snack. Asher enjoyed seeing his buddies out and about in town.
After lunch, we walked back to the room and had some "down" time watching The Incredibles. It was good for the three of us to just relax and cuddle in bed. I think Danny needed the rest more than Asher did! Afterwards, we walked down to Michelle and Adam's house so that Asher could play with Sterling and Danny could meet our new friends. I can't resist a little iced tea from the States! We had a sweet time of fellowship.
It was off to dinner and bathing after that. It may not sound like a very eventful day, but it was a wonderful time spent together bonding and enjoying each other.
Today is actually Asher's birthday. While we plan on celebrating when we get home, we have sung him "Happy Birthday" and opened a few presents. We are about to take a boat ride across Lake Victoria and to the source of the Nile. Danny, the history teacher, is all fired up about that. Hopefully, I will have some pictures to share soon.
Tomorrow Danny will fly home, and I will be here for one more week to get Asher's passport and visa. Right now, I plan on flying home next Sunday night (10/18) and arriving Monday night around 5:15. Please continue to pray that all the details will fall into place so that this will work. You all have been such faithful friends to us. I cannot wait to get home and hug all of your sweet necks!
Will post more pictures tonight!
