Our Lichinga House

This is how we have running water into our house. Water is pumped into this big cistern and then gravity brings it into the house through pipes. It really works well, other than there is not much water pressure at all.

Here are the kids all enjoying the beautiful weather here.

Here is the view from the back porch of our Lichinga house. It is a beautiful veiw, but as you can see we are surrounded by mud huts with grass roofs. It really puts things into perspective and makes you realize just how much we have living next to those who really have nothing.

This is the front veiw of the house. It is really pretty cute. We will take pictures of the inside after we move in so everyone can see what the inside looks like.

What a beautiful home! I love how color in Africa is so much more vivid and pigmented. We hope to travel to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia this summer to pick up child #4--Taye, who is about 18 months old and waiting for us at Kunkeet Children's Center. We <3 Africa and will be praying for your family and ministry. And maybe someday we will be able to come visit!
