We have been busy in the meanwhile! Teaching, gardening, fixing up the dental clinic and a few other things. But being busy is not completely to blame for our failure to give an update on our lives. A few months ago, we started a new little project that has been absorbing the spare energies of the chief blogger (yours truly, Chantee).
Some of you may have heard the news that brings us great joy already :) For those who have not, here it is! We are expecting a new baby Fisher to arrive this spring!! Our delight, awe, and excitement know no bounds. :)
Since I am crawling cautiously back into the land of normalcy, I plan to post more in the couple of months that remain.
In brief, the Bible school is in full swing, and we have been enjoying teaching several classes. The group of students is a real joy, and we love to go to sleep to the sound of their beautiful singing. The dental clinic is up and running and we are training a couple of local CFM nurses to clean and repair teeth along with the other skills required to carry on the work in our absence.
We started our mobile dental outreach a couple of weeks ago with good results. We look forward to two more trips into the bush with the dental team before we pack up and head to South Sudan... For indeed, our time here in Africa will wind up with a month long trip to South Sudan. We will be visiting the newest fields of labor and will be helping to teach a two week intensive evangelism training course.
That's it, in a nutshell. [note from Luke: We have had a nice little amount of lettuce and arugula from the garden we started upon our arrival along with an abundance of basil. We are picking the collards and toscano kale and the first three tomatoes have ripened!!]
More stories and pictures will come soon. God is blessing, and we are praising.
