Dear Mama Hicks,
The word on Aunt Nancy is encouraging and we continue to pray for her everyday. We wont like to see he transcend on away from us so soon. Thanks for being around her through all this.
I am still struggling to get pictures uploaded here. I had even reduced the picture size to the smallest size in my last pictures but still cant get it up. The problem is with the server i guess. I am spending more and more time and just cant do even one. Before it was not like that. I will try again later today ok.
Please see if you can send us small money to cover some of our bills. Both the electric and water rates are very very high the last few weeks. This morning again they sent us a whole lot. I hate to ask but i just cant meet that at this moment.
Depends on if post comes and brings medications in well this week, i am planning on making a trip to give out some of those medications and update pictures of the school.
Prices are flying everyday here on food stuffs, rice and now petrol etc. Its crazy to live here these days. I am finding it harder and harder to help out others.
I am still around on internet so maybe we will hook up in a chat some how. I am working on the pictures -trying to send them to you.
