23/6 continued! Latest episode re car and net delivery!
Ok, latest episode!! We filled up with fuel but still didn’t get very far because, when I needed to reverse, guess what? Reverse doesn’t work! So out the three men get and push! That’s ok, I’m just driving!!!
We did manage to deliver a few nets on behalf of Marton Primary in Congleton. These people are so happy to see a Mzungu and especially thankful for the life saving gift. Ar the same time we were giving pens and pencils out to each child. These had been donated by the ladies of Marple Methodist Church and also our lovely niece Vicky Smith.

Thank you Harrison and Vivi too!
The parents of these children run a little shop but they still cannot afford mosquito nets
Often we would be given gifts. The people may no have a lot but what they have they share. Here we were given lots of ground nuts and green oranges!
These ladies were at a village meeting but they welcomed us
Took me a while to get up again!
