“Come under here!” Last week as the rain came down, students scrambled for cover at Mucombeze Primary School. This cotton capulana was a fun umbrella initially for these girls, but they were soon forced to take more serious cover in the school kitchen. We and the teachers were too! Being cramped but sheltered made for a few fun moments.
Construction on the school’s classroom divisions has progressed well and hopefully the roof trusses will go up next week. Classes currently meet under the trees which make for great ventilation on hot days but afford little protection on rainy ones!
“One potato, two potato…hmm, 21 potatoes divided by 3 days equals 7 potatoes per day! Yep, that otta do.” I had to get a shot of Chris and Dwight counting potatoes to ensure that there would be enough to see us through Chris and Gary’s last week in Mozambique. A trip to the grocery store is a long one, so we stretch food as much as we can when we have to. Thankfully the potatoes didn’t have to be stretched too thin! This week we see Chris and Gary off, then we return to Mozambique to move homes. Indeed, these are last days with family and the last days in our old home.
