I am actually going to get to bed at a decent hour tonight! Here was the day:
Got up at 8 after a good night’s rest. The boys said they slept well but Kurt woke up at 2:30 and couldn’t go back to sleep. Many of the old people I bring with me have the same problem! The hotel is very nice and we realize we are leaving the lap of luxury tomorrow. It will be good for Rob and Tucker. Oh, I told you yesterday that Rob went out of his way to scare Tucker on the flight. Well, today I learned that he had someone else encouraging him to scare Tucker. Won’t divulge the name only to say his initials are TK and his job description at the Buckingham Road Church of Christ is YM. That is all I am going to say. Tucker told me that during some turbulence that Rob was more frightened than Tucker. Kurt chimed in and said: ‘you should have had a crazy woman next to you’. Unfortunately he then added: ‘of course, crazy woman is a redundant statement’. Don’t tell his wife Jean about this because she is a crazy woman! She is very sweet, however.
Jean Claude arrived around 10. We visited some and then left around 11 to go eat lunch. As I have told you before, if the people in these restaurants were hungry when they arrived there would be nothing but corpses inside! After about an hour we received our meals, all in this order: Jean Claude and I got ours first; then Louis followed by Rob and Tucker. We found out that the reason why Kurt’s was so late was because they had inadvertently given his to someone else and they had to start all over! We then hopped in taxis to go to a supermarket to buy stuff for the trip. Oh, Kurt just interrupted me with a request to take them to buy ice cream. I really don’t want to go but I must be a good director so I will force myself. I may even force myself to have two or 3 dips so they won’t feel bad! When I got back I then went out hunting a few small things and worked up a good sweat. I am all packed and ready for tomorrow. Will not have as fast a speed of connection in Kumba because I will be on a modem. At any rate, I will still write each day. Tomorrow I should be able to post some African pictures. For now you have to look at the stuff like the photo below. This is our 3 kids whose names from left to right are Doobin, Bapp and Bear. Those are nicknames that their mom gave them! It is not hard to pick out the best looking one!
Please pray for our safety tomorrow. Everyone is doing well.
