Tim went to court on Monday again for the issue with the land for the Bible school and he has agreed to pay the people the money they are asking. He could go further in the court and press the matter, but we all feel it is for the best to put this behind us and keep a good testimony and just pay the amount they want. He gave them the money on Tuesday and now we are hoping we can move on with out complications on the building of the school. He is meeting with a guy tomorrow to start clearing the land.
Tim leaves on Sunday to go to Mocimboa de Praia, which is a town on the coast of Mozambique in the Cabo del Gado province. He will be teaching at a discipleship school there for two weeks on Bible survey. In November we have our annual SIM conference for Training in Ministry and then I am putting together a home school conference for the third week of November.
Prayer requests for this month are:
*for the Nissan to be fixed and sold as soon as possible (we are still in debt with the cost of the customs on the Toyota until we can sell the Nissan).
*for safety for Tim travelling and his teaching in Mocimboa de Praia.
*for me as I am home for 2+ weeks by myself without a car(I guess I should be used to that by now) and with the kids.
*For the progress of the land clearing and building.
Here are some pictures from our trip:
This is Mercy Air where we stayed at Nelspruit. The kids loved it and you can see why.

Entering Kruger Park
We saw lots of spotted hyena and we were able to get quite close to them.
We had a pack of wild dogs run along side our car for a couple of kilometers.
A baby elephant crossing the road in front of us.
This big guy was enjoying the river.
A wild dog sleeping alongside the road.
A little owl we saw in the tree at one of our stops and he was so cute.
There were 2 male lions that crossed the road right in front of us. They were following a herd of cape buffalo.
The kids enjoyed this place we stayed on the coast during our drive back up to Lichinga. It is run by a Zimbabwean couple.
