February 2017 Newsletter;

This month was absolutely fun. Though I sometimes fear taking the children out of Uhekule Village, I was asked by several friends to bring them to the “Tanwat Lake”. This lake is hidden from the highway  just outside of Njombe town and belongs to the lumber company, Tanwat.  So I decided the kids needed a real fun day, so we loaded 5 into my 21 year old Toyota pick-up truck and the other 8 into a taxi van that my neighbor drives daily. We packed big peanut butter and jam sandwiches, drinks and took off.

The orphans had never been to a lake and a couple said they knew how to swim. I believe they had seen pictures of swimmers. So, when you look at the videos, you will see Ziada and Nicky swimming with their arms but walking on the bottom of the lake. That is, until they could not touch the bottom, then made a quick turn-around. So funny.

The big treat, as much as the lake experience, was eating chips myai (potato fries in an egg omelet)  in town at my friend’s café. They loved it.

Blessings to all,

Bibi Kay
