Last week there was a golf tournament at RVA. One of the staff at the kid’s school put together a small par three course around the upper field. So now this spring instead of rugby cheers on the paddock, you hear cries of “Fore!” Small groups moved around the course, with a closest to the pin contest and free cokes for each hole in one. The low scorer won two free pizzas from the local Pizza Inn. Its a tiny course, but it is a lot of fun for a quick nine holes. Tennis courts are water hazards. Soccer goals are tall trees in the fairway. The wind blows across the pitch toward Mt. Longonot in the valley. You are considered in the hole when your ball is within a club length of the flag. There are no greens and the fairways are deep as rough. David and Peter have picked up clubs for almost the first time, and progress is being made by all of us in our nine iron game.

I mentioned a few days ago about the rain. Here are some pictures from the flooded out bridge and abandoned train station. We took a pretty long hike (appx 8 miles round trip) to get up to the area of the mud slides. Wow! It was impressive, and I think with more rain we can expect more damage unfortunately.
No water into blood, but we have had innumerous cicadas,
and now constant rain. I would not want to be on the train seeing this for the first time. It looks like an Indiana Jones movie! Reports are no one was injured.
Rainy season is in full swing! The kids have started back into their third trimester of the year. Both the school year and rainy season will end sometime in July. So far COVID is ok, but we are hearing sad stories from Tanzania just south of Kenya. I have a lighter schedule next week, and so I hope to get caught up on many mini-projects that I have on the brain. That is unless corona virus infections arrives. Then it is all hands on deck until it calms down. Keep praying for us! We are praying for you in return.
