150 kilometers in eight hours on the worst roads I had driven on, was the journey on our last visit to Telimele, and I expected it to be as bad if not worse this time around. However, we arrived here in around six hours with a very pleasant drive. The ‘roads’ (mud tracks), although in very poor condition, were not so bad that I thought we would get stuck at any point and as...

altThey say children thrive on routine - certainly mine do.

Quite recently I was asked to help with the design of a safe room for another missionary family. They live only a few hours outside of Labe. Ruth and I didn’t feel as if there was any sort of threat to us, however the organization that sent this family stipulates that a safe room is necessary in any country which could have potential terrorist elements, or the potential for political instability and riots.

We initially thought that this was very odd, but in this age where the threat of terrorism is very real and could strike anywhere I could understand why an organization would ask for such a thing.

Also it’s not something that I’d had much experience with...
