Bied helped quite a bit with the final finishes on the fort. The kids did carry the huge wooden door from where Wilbur's pen used to be all the way to the 'bee tree' (named so, because of the periodic visits from swarms of honey makers:)). I helped to bandage and mend the one toe that was crushed by the very heavy wooden door...So after some effort by all, we went from mud pool to mud hut. Did I mention two of our kids have some kind of fungal ringworm from playing in the dirt? I felt bad for letting them get all mucky. But then someone reminded me that playing outside is better than sitting cooped up in front of a computer or TV all day.
Yes and in case you were wondering, Wilbur's pen behind the water tower is no longer. To market, to market to buy a fat pig...we sold him. He was getting rather large and costing us quite a bit to keep him that size. Suprisingly, the kids haven't been too concerned of his whereabouts. What did concern us this week though, was Allison's very high fevers and listlessness. The doctor here has put her on a dose of malaria medication. Her fevers have come down, but we're still keeping a close eye on her. She and I were unable to join the rest of our family who joined the team on a mini safari and trip to Lake Malawi today.

After about 32 hours of travel the team of seven guys from the Master's Seminary have arrived safely here in Lilongwe. Kwacha Simwaka is leading the team. He however, continued with his travel another 6 hours north to Mzuzu, to visit his family who he has not seen for almost three years. He returns today! We had a good lunch time with the rest of the guys today and now they're off to the market area and Mtsiliza village. Our prayer is that at least three guys will make the decision to join the ministry here in Malawi. We know that God in His perfect plan will bring the right people to serve here. It's exciting!

Looks like our hopeful redhead is losing the strawberry tinge she had.
Allison talks so much now and certainly handles her big brothers. Today Ben was running from her saying, "Mom help! Alli is trying to get me." She's quite feisty and sometimes gets away with too much cause she's so cute!
