If you've ever been to Arusha, then you know that one of the biggest hazards that we face is simply traffic. Motorcycles (they call them piki pikis here) swarm around, in, and out of traffic like swarms of bees. They mostly drive on the center and side lines of the road, but can swerve across the lane with no warning. Yesterday, we fell victim to just such a maneuver. A piki piki swerved right into us, knocking off the rear quarter panel of our vehicle. Apparently, not seriously injured (thankfully!) the piki piki driver quickly disappeared.
So what could we do? It just so happened that we had some duct tape with us, but... it was my daughter's PINK duct tape. Urgh. How unmanly can you get? Oh well, sometimes you just have to do what you have to do. So, we taped it back on and went on about our day.
The school year is moving right along. These men are just a few weeks away from graduation, but first they must conquer my class on Revelation. It is proving to be a rich and rewarding study. I hope they are benefiting from it as much as I am.
Would You Like a Visit?
We do have a few slots left in our schedule for our upcoming visit to the U.S. If you would like me to come by and visit with your congregation, then contact me and we will work it out.
