We were blessed again as wonderful friends drove us from Lloydminster to Didsbury and even had the graciousness to let us have time to stop and visit with friends in Bashaw. We spent a few days fellowshipping and relaxing in Didsbury with the former pastor couple from our home church. Again blessed by dear friends whose home is peaceful and hospitality is gracious and we are treated more like family then friends.
After many hours of travel we returned to Niger on September 12. After waiting far too many days we received our driver’s licenses and returned to a Galmi that was much greener due to a good rainy season. We also returned to a Galmi that was experiencing a dearth of deaths due to malaria and cholera. A hospital that is overrun with patients and an extraordinary medical team that continues to endure despite the hardships. There have been many rumblings about protests and other difficulties but we remain calm and safe.
It is a blessing to be home at Galmi. To have our first meal at Galmi with Sani and Sara and to see that our porch had been completed. For now our garden is green and lush – so far lots of green and not a lot of veggies, but we hope that will soon change.
We want to thank all of you for your support and your love.
Orest and Grace
