In 2008, I made a trip to Tanzania. While I was there, I met a Great Man of God, who devoted his life to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with everyone he met. He was in need of a building and I promised to do what I could to help. Knitting for Tanzania is my attempt to help him build a church building. All profits from sales of my knits go directly to help with his building project.

The sky is blue (almost)
and the rain has stopped. The pineapple express has moved on. We heard the river is receding so Gina just left to try to go home. He husband said their house was still dry. She is sick and so am I so home is a good place for her to be tonight. Except I made a huge crock pot full of Scalloped potatoes and ham. More than Stan and I can eat. David got off work early and made it home to our house to pick up his girls and attempt to go home to their home. If they cannot get across the river in town, they can drive south through another town and then head back north on an alternate route and cross the river at a higher point. That is about a 20 mile trip as opposed to five. Naturally everyone wants to sleep in their own beds tonight. If it proves to not be safe, they can all return to my house. Thanks for all of the care and concern. I am very thankful that I am up high and not down on the plain.
