New visitor and Rebuilding has begun!

We welcomed to Chidamoyo, Emily Hutchins on June 28th.  She flew in from Seattle, WA to join us for a month of work with us.  She graduated from college last year in Biology and is trying to find out what she would like to do in medical work.  She has been busy helping Major with his financial report, filing for our ART clinic, helping me with month end reports, watching a C/Section, going out on a vaccination clinic and doing vital signs for our out patient clinic, and drawing blood for CD4s--all in her first week here!  More fun to come!

On Monday the construction company we have hired to do the rebuilding showed up and began work! They have started working on building a new dining room that will be attached to the kitchen.  They have almost finished the foundation in 4 days--they are moving fast!  Yeah!

UK Trust has bought a new electric Industrial washing machine and laundry pressure for us again.  As well as purchasing a new engine for our new borehole.  We are so thankful for all they do with us!  Gilly Withers celebrated her 70th birthday today and we wish her many more!  She and her husband Mike run our UK Trust and are always such a big help to our work!  Happy Birthday Gilly!

My retirement home at Major's village in Batanai has begun and this week they finished the grass roof on the open kitchen/dining room.  It is very big and people are coming to look at it.  They should be starting the house soon.

We are celebrated the 4th of July tonight on the 5th since we had to work all day yesterday--no time to cook all our traditional food.  We had hot dogs and hamburgers BBQ, baked beans, corn casserole, potato, macaroni and cole slaw salads and green beans!  Wow--what a feast.  Chocolate cake for dessert.  Emily helped Major's girls set up the decorations and everyone had to wear Red-White-Blue tonight!  Happy 238 America!
