Yesterday I took Jocelyn, a brand new MAF wife that just got to the field 9 days ago, and my friend Esther to the orphanage. Neither had been there before so we took a tour and saw the babies and toddlers and handicapped kids. From there we ventured off into a large Marche (outdoor Congolese Market) that was mainly vegetables and some other sundries. It was interesting. We felt the people there were a bit hostile and not really liking us being there, so we didn't stay long. From there we went to where furniture is made by hand outside along the road using crude tools and methods. It was fun to look around. I bought a small wooden side table that I think is really cool. It is definitely traditional Congolese.
It seems that Caleb may be the first Abbott to have Malaria. He has all the symptoms and so we have started him on the treatment. Pray for him during the next 24-48 hours that he doesn't become dehydrated and that he can keep the medicine down.
This weekend we are hoping to make it to the stadium, finally, to see a football (soccer) game. We are so excited! I've been trying to get there since we arrived and I couldn't find an expat that had been there or would recommend going. Everyone says it could be too dicey to go. BUT.... the new couple that have arrived in Kinshasa will go with us, so we are really pumped. :) I'll take some pics and let you know how it goes.
I am so thankful that for TWO whole days now we have had internet access! That has been a HUGE deal to us and we are super thankful.
