We are getting busy. Well, I'm getting busy. Renita was born busy. My class is finishing up this week; I have a final exam to produce. Renita just finished a two day business workshop a few hours away from here. I am still teaching reformed theology for various branches of the "Christian Reformed Church of Liberia." Renita is finishing up this year's home schooling while de facto managing the neighborhood soccer team. She is also halfway through her LEAD business class. I am gearing up for two big events: in July, faculty from Calvin College and Kuyper College in Michigan USA with be visiting MPCHS to figure out how to help us develop a social work program, and in August I am leading a two week, forty hour workshop on counseling and psychosocial skills for reps from about a dozen NGOs around the country. The kids are having a blast. Hannah is out every day chasing and being chased, teasing and being teased, laughing, crying and having the time of her life with the dozens of kids who live here. Noah now has chickens, dogs, pigeons, is hatching lizards and snakes, just released a baby bird he found back into the wild, and is bugging us to get a monkey. Here are a few shots that capture the activity.
