First of all, thanks to my wife, Julie, and my Assistant, Debbie, for taking notes as I called via satellite phone from the mountain this past week. It’s amazing that technology allows us to communicate from the most desolate of locations.

In the days to come I will be sharing more details of our adventure in Tanzania that could not be shared via Verizon.

Tom and I met the children our families sponsor in TZ today. We visited the cottages RiverTree partnered with Compassion to begin for children who have been orphaned as a result of the AIDS pandemic. It has been an emotionally draining day. . .

We begin our journey home tomorrow evening. We deeply appreciate your prayers.
