Landed in VA

Hello friends. Just a quick note to let you know that we have made it to Virginia and settled in for some time of preparation. We're still getting caught up, trying to make this feel like home, and trying o breathe amidst a blanket of heat, but doing very well and moving full speed ahead!! We've already begun to see some friends we met back in April and meet some new people. In fact, the first couple we met (on the bus from the airport) knew my [michael] childhood babysitter (who's now in Oklahoma).
[Hi Stephanie, Carrie, and Linda if you're out there!!]

I of course, only needed a babysitter until I was 5, she then quit when I began roundhouse kicking everything in sight.

Swahili word for the day is mtoto, which means baby (or child).

What is the Swahili word for Chuck Norris?

Welcome to Virginia! It's hot.

Knowing that the chief export of Chuck Norris is pain... the swahili word for pain and punishment (and thus Chuck Norris) is "adhabu".

Yeah, Virginia's hot.

Virginia was settled in 1609, and became known as a place where evangelicals "placed emphasis on spiritual renewal and on a personal God who intervened in human affairs". I trust it is still such a place. With penda,
