TECHNICAL PROBLEMS WITH COMPUTER
Am tapping this out from my tablet, as my computer needs some first aid before I can use it.
Hope to be back to normal by next weekend as Andy and Eric are working on it.
FRIDAY, BUNNY IN PEMBA TO FETCH ANDY AND ASHLEE (THE A TEAM)
They arrived on time, and are now in Balama with Dave and I.
I finished our Pemba banking Friday at 9 a.m. while awaiting for the A Team to arrive. That afternoon an electrical fire badly damaged that same bank, burning up money in the teller’s cubicles. Report says that 4 people were taken to hospital for injuries received in the fire. That is all I know at this time. I have banked there for 17 years, know most of the people working there, so this was a real shock.
Am praying none were seriously hurt.
THIS WEEK’S ACTIVITIES
Sunday, Dave and I were invited to the nearby Graphite Mine for lunch with the bosses.
Had a great time of fellowship and wonderful food. Their team will be bringing gifts to the June 1st National Children’s Day Party for our 109 orphans and the 26 Foster mothers.
Needless to say, with the party, and corn buying kicking off on June first, we are going to be busier than a bunch of beavers building a dam in a flooded river!
I spent this last week expanding warehouse #3 so we can buy extra rice this year in the face of corn shortages over the next 12 months.
Advantage of storing rice in the hull– it stores well for over a year, making it the perfect weapon against hunger if extra food is needed. With the severe drought in southern Mozambique, the fight for the corn begins on Wed.
PRAY WE RECEIVE THE 3000 SACKS NEEDED.
Cement floor is now complete in the expansion, and walls are up, so once the floor dries, we are good to go.
Rice buying is in July, so no problem there.
Our brick layer team completed the floor in our new orphan home, so once it dries, we can install doors and windows, and complete the house for our new orphan family. All construction will now be on hold, as my entire team of carpenters and brick layers are an essential part of the corn buying team.
CORN BUYING LICENSES IN HAND
We have Monday and Tuesday to get everything ready as corn buying begins Wed., June 1st.
CAPENA began distributing feed sacks to the village co-ops on Friday.
3000 sacks of corn are needed to fill the need of our children until Dec. 31st with June corn.
Our Pastors are providing us with the super dry JULY corn that stores better in the rainy season.
This last 120 tons feeds our orphans from January to May.
That is all for this week’s, folks!
