The Gingerbread Man

Joshua was excited this week as it was his classes turn to take the Infant Assembly at school. They were performing the story of the Gingerbread Man and Joshua was the Gingerbread Man. Another bonus was the fact that Simon could also attend as he had a non-flying day. Joshua did a splendid job of being the Gingerbread Man and we were wondering how they were going to portray the fox eating the gingerbread man. However, I guess in Uganda they have a different version (or they changed it!) because at just the last minute the little old man and the little old woman came running to his rescue and delivered the gingerbread man from the wily old fox.
(Sorry the pictures are not so good of Johsua, the lighting in the music room is not good for photography)

Rainy Season

We are in the midst of rainy season at the moment. Phew can it rain!!!! The other day I was coming back from a friends house with Zara in the MAF van. (our car was out of service awaiting a new battery). As I was going up one of the hills the van started to slide and the wheels were spinning. It took about 10 trys before I managed to make it up the hill. Zara was sitting next to me and she kindly advised me..."Mummy we should just go back to Ilonka's (friend) house and sleep there for the night.." Thankfully once I managed to get it into 4WD we made it up the hill. When we got to the top of the hill we both thanked the Lord for a successful mission through the mud. Please pray for our pilots during this season of rain and storms that they would have wisdom and an alertness to juggle all the necessary decisions that need to be made. Also I would value your prayers for driving on the roads especially when taking Joshua and Zara to school that we would have safe passage. I will try and take some photos this week so you can get a better idea of the conditions ;)
