       It is great to be back in South Africa.  We made it back just in time for the last of the mangos on our tree, hot sticky weather and the start of avo season!  More importantly, it is great to reconnect with friends, be back at Calvary Baptist Church and work towards reopening Calvary Care Home.  It always seems a bit overwhelming; the cleaning, paperwork, restocking and praying that God will send us patients.  This next week, I have a few appointments set up to reintroduce the Care Home and the ministry.  One is with the local Hospice nurse manager and the other with the head ARV clinic nurse.  I'm praying that God would give me favor in their eyes and that they would understand the work we are trying to do.
     The girls are enjoying reconnecting with friends.  The week after we got back, we hosted the Field Council meeting at our home.  This was a wonderful time to see the other missionaries and touch base with how their ministries are going.

       Another fun part for the girls was jumping back into their rhythmic gymnastic classes.  We had left for the states before the annual prize giving, so the girls were very excited to get their trophies and medals from the last year!

        Emily received a trophy for winner of the Level 1 under 9 group with a few medals added on to that.  Abby received a trophy for winner of the Level 3 under 11 group and a trophy for Best Level 3 Gymnast (and a few more medals).  They did great!
