The rest of our journey in Mozambique

 Hannah and I, along with Wanne and Sara got to stay here with the H. family while the husbands went off further into Mozambique to survey areas.  This place is called Nacala.  The H. family right now live right on the beach while their future house is being built.

 We really enjoyed spending time with this family and seeing where they live.  I was able to go with Becky to one of her ladies bible studies.  Of course, I didn't understand anything being said because it was in Portuguese and Nahara.
Hannah and their kids enjoyed swimming.

This is exactly what I needed!
 I did get sick while at their house for about 24-30 hours of the worst headache I have ever had.  B. is a nurse and she took very good care of me along with the other ladies.  After she gave me two shots I was good as new!

  B. painting the name Ororomela on the side of their boat.  It means "hope."  Pray for this family as they try to share hope with those they come into contact with.

 The guys got back from their trip Sunday evening so the next morning before we had to leave they were able to go out on the boat.  They had a great time and even got to see whales!

 Dillon stayed behind with me and Hannah so we explored the beach looking for seashells and climb on rocks.

 We left Nacala and went and spent the night in Nampala and then headed to where another family will live when they get back from their stateside assignment.  Since the family is not there at this time we camped outside. 

 I took this picture to show the amount of kids that just hung out watching us.  I don't think we were doing anything terribly interesting but I guess we were something new to look out in this very rural place.

 Lee cooking our dinner over the fire.  It was very good!

We had a great time on our trip and traveled over 5000 kilometers! We appreciate so much all those missionaries who hosted us in their home and took such good care of us.  It sure was good to get home and sleep in our own bed though.
