These are the outlets here... Anytime you plug something in you need an adaptor, even for South African things, and there are many types of adaptors.  They will never become first world this way!

The white plug is plugged into an adaptor, which is plugged into another adaptor, which is plugged into the wall.  The black plug only needed one adaptor!  Digging through the box of adaptors makes cooking even less appealing.  They will never become First World this way!

    Everyone looks so happy! That is what we like to see. Are those the school uniforms? Very bright and cheerful. Ruthie looks very happy at the pre-school. It helps so much to see the pictures.

    Love, Dad & Mom

    We loved to see your blogs, and your pictures tonight. The girls look so good and happy which is nice to see. I liked the picture with Zanele and Thandi too. Keep taking them and we’ll keep living vicariously through you. Love you all.

    Wonderful photos! It’s so great to be able to read about your adventures here, but I do try to truly envision what it must be like for all of you…

    What beautiful pictures – I love the last one of Brian and the girls. I read the first few entries of your blog too – sounds like you have quite the spectrum of emotions day to day; a mixed blessing. The girls look wonderful and I’m sure have gained an unforgettable experience. We continue to pray for your family. Redeemer misses you all!

    From the looks of things, it is beautiful there. Everyone looks happy, I hope you are all enjoying many adventures to store up in your memory books.

    Hi
    We were wondering whether we would be able to use one of your images in our magazine? It is a free magzine on global issues http://www.dev-zone.org/justchange/.
    Kind Regards
    Elena
