July in Kalukembe: dry, cold, cloudless skies, eucalyptus flowers, the end of malaria season. The afternoon sunlight is warm and golden. The evening fires and hot cocoa warm us inside. And the kids cuddle under their blankets to listen to stories we share. These picture updates hold more stories than I can remember, but we hope you enjoy the snapshots.
|In May, Dr. Lena said good-bye and returned to the States. She is here with our kids and shared dogs. We miss you, Dr. Lena!|
|In June, we harvested our beans. After a rainy season short on rain, it was a good reminder to be praying for our neighbors and have generous hands as they go through difficult times|
|Eliel working on portrait drawing of Priscila with machines. |
|On the first weekend of July, we hosted a one-day refresher course for clinicians in our municipality. Topics ranged from eye diseases to fistulas to neonatal resuscitation. Here, Dr. Steve shares from his wealth of experience in eye diseases.|
|The view from our back veranda at dusk. |
|Naomi continues to create lots of fun home scenes!|
|Zeke, Eliel and friends playing an "away" game with local children from Kalonyoha. Ages ranged from 6 to 16, though Priscila increased that when she made her super substitution!|
