Freezing in Africa

With our weather always hot in Abidjan, we've not thought freezing here was possible. This morning we woke up in our unheated apartment to 62F and shivering.

On the other hand, we're really grateful for this Arabic course. It is very encouraging for us. It makes what seemed impossible seem easy.

Heavenly Father, keep the Farhos warm and healthy!

Runny noses in Kairouan

Here are some of my photos from our day:Arabic lesson about parts of a house.

Mike at the Kairouan, Tunisia Medina today

This morning we had Arabic class while we were all blowing our noses. How annoying.

Heavenly Father, please heal Mike, Sue and Joshua of their colds. Thank You for their excellent teachers.

Travel Monday to Kairouan, Tunisia

After an exciting week of visits and learning in Tunis, we head south tomorrow to Kairouan, Tunisia. It is the most holy city for Islam in Africa. We'll study spoken Arabic there four weeks. It will be exhausting, but well worth the work.

Our host in Tunis requests your prayers for his family. They are currently living in the USA, getting special help for their youngest son. It is difficult for his wife with three kids in homeschool and the baby with doctors and such.

Heavenly Father, we thank You for the good week so far for the Farhos. Give them a safe voyage tomorrow. Please provide good helpers for Sharon in the USA.
