IMPROVED TACTICS for taking care of small animals that would like to share our house with us. In Lada we had a number of large lizard-like animals that enjoyed life in the pilot house. We didn't mind sharing the space, except that they didn't know when it was time to sleep and had a habit of waking us up with their loud noises. Eventually we took care of many of them over a period of months. We'd let them get brave enough to come into the open then chase them! I've got a great picture of Kevin "hunting" in the house, but I can't seem to add a photo today:(. Anyway, back to the topic.... we've tried a number of things on the mice in our house here and have finally been somewhat successful in taking care of them with poison. The down side is that they die somewhere and your nose leads you to them!

Today Garry is back in the air, bringing some missionaries to town and taking a couple of loads of cargo in to their location. The cargo he's taking in is pieces for kitchen cupboards for a missionary family who is just moving in to the location. Tim had worked in this location as a single man and is now back with his wife and 2 young children. Tim already knows the language and hopes to help the tribal believers in different outreaches they're involved in.
