the good news is that we broke ground on the new school building today!!!! pictures to follow...
8 big fat piglets. i'll be taking some pics tomorrow and posting them.
pray for this country: the people are quite shaken by the deaths in jimani - percentage wise, it would be about 20,000 americans.
otherwise, things are great, it's good to be back where God has sent me.
thanks for all the prayers - i had a great retreat and am 20 hours from departure - i need to get back home and evaluate the damage due to the floods: as far as i can tell from reports that i have received, the local banica area has not suffered from flooding, but so other areas about 45 minutes away have, so i'll have a full report in a couple of days, well, at least i hope i will, as i have received a missive lamenting the lack of internet at a parish...
just a quick update on things around here:
my pig is ready to pop. the talk is 10-12 piglets. we'll see...
i have 4 little chickens - two of which are egg layers! they should begin laying within a month or so.
my turkeys continue to enjoy life, but they haven't layed any eggs yet.
should be new priest down here sometime this summer.
we have collected over 37,000 for the school - we just need 13 more! thanks to all those who have donated and helped out.
the official "Christendom College Summer School Program" begins in a couple of weeks, with 10 students coming down to take spanish and theology class...
that's it for now - God bless
the rain has begun in earnest, which is a delight as the land has gone from brown to green.
here is our good friend michelina again; we caught her in the middle of a hair job:
