Garry and Brian did some flying yesterday, flying to a nearby city to meet the airport personnel and familiarize themselves with it before Brian's checkride next Monday.
Today they are taking cargo to one of our missionary families and getting Brian some practice on that airstrip. The airstrip is a ways from the missionary's house so it's a mental exercise in scheduling and details to get everything arranged. There isn't a windsock at this location, so the people are building a smokey fire-- we'll see how that works out for them.
I have a rather nasty cold this week, so things have been going slowly here at home. Thankfully the boys are old enough to take care of a lot of things! We've gotten several days of school done this week, though not as much as I'd hoped.... which my family would say is just the norm for me!
Several of our friends are leaving in the next week-- the guesthome managers and a church-planting couple. It's always hard to say goodbye. It's always good to know that if we don't meet here on earth again there will be eternity to catch up on God's amazing work!
