update early Sunday Morning

I just got off the phone with James and he said that all at St. Laurence House had a good night sleep. He said Mako slept well and was able to eat a full plate of rice last night.

James has been suffering some discomfort which we determined to be allergy attacks. (We hope this is what is going on). The whole country is in bloom right now - flowers all around - hanging off trees, stemming from the ground - everywhere.

Nazareth House and especially St. Laurence House needs some heavy duty prayers of protection right now.

No word on Teacher Lucy yet. We will hear from Pa Foday later today, I hope.
