Time to leave


January has gone by in a hurry and I enjoyed spending time with family and friends. 

Major decided to fly back to the US to help me pack up and get home and he arrived on January 30.  He arrived just in time to go out to lots of lunches and dinners.  After he lost all his weight from his last visit, he is gaining again.  He said he is “Carb loading for Zimbabwe!”

On February 1st Major and Sylvia and I flew down to San Bernardino to spend 2 short days with ex-Chidamoyo missionaries, Bill and Reba Harrison and their daughter Julie.  They took us to a dinner and stage show on Saturday night and to church on Sunday in Redlands and then we watched the Super Bowl on Sunday afternoon with them!  We did a lot of yelling, but unfortunately the 49ers lost, and we must wait for another year!!

We flew back on Monday the 3rd and then spent the rest of our time shopping, packing and eating!  We are ready to go home.  The time just flew by and now we are ready to leave!

We leave in the afternoon tomorrow the (12th) and will arrive Friday afternoon (14th) in Harare.  We are spending the night in Harare before heading to Chidamoyo on Saturday.

It’s a long flight home but I am anxious to go after 5 ½ months away from my home and work.

We thank everyone for their generous meals and entertainment.  Sylvia Majoni-Brown let Major and I stay at her house all these months and my nephew lent me a vehicle for the whole time I was here.  God is so good!

Continue to pray for Zimbabwe.  As the headlines today on Google stated, “no food, no water, no fuel, no money!”  Sounds like an exciting time ahead.  Will talk to you next from Zimbabwe!
