Flights Booked!

It's definite! Our flights are booked! I was just looking at a blog we posted on August 1st, 2010 with the same title, when we had our flights booked one way from London to Dar es Salaam. It seems so long ago, that adventure of going into the unknown. This time we are going into what was once all so familiar, but I think we might be in for some shocks! We fly into London on August 29th and will be staying with Tim's very kind parents in Sherborne St. John, Hampshire for four months. We go to Canada on Christmas Eve, to spend Christmas with family and friends in Langley, B.C. And then in January, we return to Tanzania to continue the work here. We are so very grateful for the support we have had over these two years, to enable us to live and work here. We are looking to raise support for another term and if you feel this is something you are able to help us with in any way at all, please contact our link secretary Sarah Liriano or the EIUK office for more information.

We are so looking forward to seeing friends and family again. We will keep the same email, so please get in touch with us and hopefully we can make the most of our visiting time! The girls are looking forward to being at Aldermaston Primary School - Louisa's first experience of "real" school!

Water in Isanga!
On Friday, Tim went with Andy to Isanga, a village 90km from Iringa to see the conclusion of the construction of the water project there. He wore a sweater for the second time in two years, so it must have been chilly! It is exciting to finally see clean water flowing into the village and to hear the gratitude of the people in the village to EI and tp Andy in particular for the work that has been done there.

Today we attended the ordination of our friend, Brad Galvin, which took place in the Anglican Cathedral in Iringa. It was long 4 hour service, but (retired) Bishop Donald preached well and it was a good celebration for the eight ordinands. Well done Brad!
