Orphanage in Kinshasa, Congo

Husbands love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her Ephesians 5:25

Today Keary woke up very ill. We are not sure what is going on. She was unable to get out of bed….symptoms seem to suggest food poisoning or some crazy Congolese bug.. It was a very sad day not being able to visit the orphanage and medical clinic. It instead became a day of praying, sleeping and recovery. All in the Lord’s plan for us. Skip stood by my side all day. He attended to my every need….fetching bread, water, bananas and handwashing laundry to dry in the hot sun. This is why I love serving in missions together. The team had a very successful day but commented that getting around the city was quite challenging with the traffic. It can take 2 ½ hours to drive 10-20 miles. I hope I can get a photo of the traffic and pedestrians so you can you why. The potholes are enormous, there are no painted line divisions, lanes, or stop signs or traffic lights. Total traffic chaos.
