Packing, Packing, and more Packing

Yesterday Adilio and Ingrid Herrera came over to help us get ready . . . Ingrid sprayed all our clothing with Permanone so we won't get bit by mosquitos. Here's hoping it works. Team members Carol and Curt told us a group from Keene, Texas just returned from Nairobi, Kenya -- three of them got Malaria. We're going to do everything we can to avoid the big M. I've warched over the years as Mama Twing struggled with the disease when she was exhausted from her travels.

This morning I packed all the sprayed things . . . and more. Hopefully they will all arrive with us! Pastor Musa says it is very hot . . . and at one of the places we want to visit it is raining. Here in Chicago it is 10 degrees below zero with a foot of snow on the ground. Global warming????

Even though we now have 6 bags carefully packed and weighed . . . there's many more to do. Friday we'll go at it again.

Ingrid helped for four hours on Friday. Bless those helping hands! Here she is unpacking to re-pack one of our many bags.
