On Sat. we moved into one of the missionary houses here at New Hope. The house is adjacent to the ‘David’ family and we’re enjoying getting to know the children that belong to that family. Everyone here loves to greet newcomers and keeping all the names and faces straight is challenging. One little boy thought he’d be clever and kept telling me a different name every time I saw him. The missionary family who live in the house lend their books to the children so we had lots of children dropping by Sun. afternoon to exchange their books.
We went to the local market again on Saturday to buy the Ugandan staples of beans, rice and posho. I wasn’t quite so sure about the slab of meat that a man takes a whack at if you’d like a piece. It’s best to get that early in the day my friends tell me. I never thought I’d be so thankful for Wal-Mart and Superstore!
