After telling them that their chances of meeting a snake were pretty non-existent, what was spotted under our woodpile on the first afternoon? Unfortunately Tim failed at his first and heroic attempt at killing a snake! But he did very well with a spade on the bat flapping about in the house, as did Dean on another occasion. So they have seen it all with frogs hopping about in beds, cockroaches creeping about and even a giant scorpion! They lived on lots of tomatoes and ugali and uji and not one complained!

Two afternoons were spent doing children's work in the church building. The third afternoon was a village cooking demonstration, teaching on nutrition and efficient cooking with the jiko. And another afternoon the team taught a class at the secondary school and we helped with planting in their school gardens. Sunday was a big day with the much-anticipated visit from the Bishop and his wife. He came with the Wingfield family and it was an opportunity for the stoves group to show what they have been doing with the project. In showing their work and progress, they were all so encouraged! There really is so much more to say, it was a full week in every way!
