Greetings from Windhoek, Namibia!

Greetings from Windhoek, Namibia! We made it safe and sound – of our 9 bags – only 8 showed up initially – the one went missing temporarily but was delivered to us by the airline the next day. It had been thoroughly rummaged but nothing was missing – thankfully!!

We applied anti-itch stuff to Meghan regularly and she managed very well - the poison ivy is drying out very quickly!

Friends who borrowed our car while we were in the US said it was making a strange noise so Stir checked it all out yesterday and found that it had a very GOOD reason for making a unusual noise!! We are glad that our friends made their whole trip without a breakdown! There are several bolts busted on something to do with the crankshaft stabilizer! It’s actually all related to some work that Stir had done before leaving Tchincombe in December. It’s all apart awaiting the opening of the shops on Monday! As soon as the repair is done we’ll head up to Angola. Thursday? Or Friday?

All Jeffrey wanted/wants for his birthday (was April 14) is a puppy that he can train to use for hunting. Pray as we look for just the right hound! So far we aren’t turning up any Labrador retrievers in this area which is his ideal! We will go to the SPCA on Monday to see what’s there.

THANK YOU for your prayers!!!

Donna for all of us!
