BUNNY IS BACK MINUS ONE CHOMPER!
All is well after extracting the bad tooth. I got there just in time, for the tooth infection surrounding my old crowned molar was about to eat through to my Left Sinus. Not a good thing. I had an implant post put in, so all will be back to normal in a few months when I can be fitted with a super duper, non-breakable, carrot chomper! Much thanks to O.U. Board Director, Eric Dry, for providing all my transportation needs during the 3 short days I was in RSA.
It’s been a short week for me in Balama, for a lack of flights to Pemba only allowed me to fly in late Wednesday afternoon. It was really nice to get back to WARM Balama! Temps in RSA were around 38ºF (5ºC) at night compared to Balama’s ‘balmy’ 53ºF (14ºC). Much too cold for this tropical Bunny.

All is well with the children, minus a few runny noses. It’s WINTER here, so some little ones are fighting the sniffles from the 50ºF nights and the 70ºF days. All our children have warm track suits, thanks to your generosity. Those sweat suits REALLY makes a difference in how their bodies handle the cold mornings.
HOUSE #6 AND KITCHEN IN FINISHING PHASE
While I was in RSA, construction moved on with all the cement floors being placed into House #6 and the large Kitchen/Eating area. We lack only the 2 latrines which are being lined with bricks at the moment, and the 2 bath room foundations beginning this coming week.
Finishing touches on kitchen House #6. Note latrine in deep background as team digs for bath/toilet area.
Finishing touches on main house #6.
We must pause construction for the week of July 8th to 13th in order to fill our barns with the final 110 tons of “super dry corn” for the rainy season (January to April).
We plan to build a 2nd bathing facility next to the first, once corn buying is over. That will complete the complex so the painting can begin!
Sorry this is so short.
Pastor’s report coming next week, as they must complete the final Sunday in June before I have all their salvation numbers. MANY coming to Christ, so our numbers may surprise you!
