Godliver also faced a huge challenge today as she had to appear in court and testify concerning the brutal rape that she suffered. Testifying in court is not an easy thing to do and when it involves such a difficult experience, it is even more difficult. Please pray for her.
We traveled very bad roads to go out to Flora's school to clear her account and get her certificate of completion of secondary education. On the way back, we stopped at a restaurant to eat lunch. We had roasted meat, ugali; and tomato, onion, and garlic salad. We washed our hands at faucets over drums that had been cut in half to catch the waste water. We were served quickly and while eating, a number of men with the items they wanted to sell, came in and tried to get people to buy. One man carried a huge stack of Bibles - some kiswahili and some NIV English translations. Two ladies at the next booth were interested in buying but wanted a study Bible which he did not have.
Upon arriving back at school, I found the ladies of the knitting class gathering and the students of Anajali leaving on their break. The ladies want to meet again tomorrow to knit even though the school will not be in session. They are working on their sweaters. Some have both the back and front done and need to start on the sleeves. Lorna has done a great job with the cable stitch.
Rains came down again for a short while helping the dusty situation to calm down for a few minutes. Now we are home and waiting for the dressmaker to come with the dresses that he was fixing for three of the team members. Soon it will be time to eat and then to bed. Tomorrow we go out to the sewing school. It will be good to see how the students have progressed.
Signing off, Anne
