Praise God from whom all blessings flow. A light rain fell last night which cooled things down and kept some of the dust down from the roads. It also made for some good back ground noise while falling to sleep. I did end up with a fairly good night’s sleep.

We had another great breakfast and waited for our trusty driver to pick us up and take us to meet Harry at the school. Upon arriving we were met by my dear friends Deacon and Pastor Nixon from Malential. They had come down the mountain to visit with us. I greeted them and then made my rounds to each class just to say hello. The classes sang welcome songs and made us feel at home and showed us their appreciation for our help.

Afterwards I continued my conversation with Deacon and Nixon as Tim joined in and Nancy prepared for her second session with the teachers. School let out and the teachers assembled ready and eager for Nancy to pour into them. To no surprise it went very well and the teachers really do hang on her every word. These two sessions were so crucial in our effort to reach these students and to help prepare the teachers for excellence.

Deacon and Nixon went their way, the students headed for the house and the teachers went where ever they go to when they leave school. We left and went and grabbed some killer food at a hole in the wall then called it an early day and went back to the guest house for some much needed R& R. We all just chilled for 3 or 4 hours and then we were treated to a great meal from Lita. The three of us sat around the table for about an hour after we ate and basically just cut up and had fun. Tomorrow is the funeral of Harry’s mother. It will be a difficult day for him. So far he has done a great job of hiding his feelings. He is such a great dude and I am so stoked to call him a true friend.
