Early this morning I saw the neighbour climbing a coconut palm tree. He was fascinating to watch. He climbed barefoot with no mechanical aids carrying a machete then began to harvest most of the large palm fronds from the top of the tree. When he had gotten all he wanted he threw the machete to the ground and after knocking off a single coconut climbed down. A couple of hours later on our way to the school we saw him heading to the marked with the results of his labour.

Sandra was busy all day doing jobs for Karen. She even has her own desk. Some food was given out but some of the chickens have not arrived yet. She spends a lot of time answering the door and diverting calls needing Karens attention. Jim was busy working on Karens computer. We also put together a clothes rack for the Reimers apartment and transported that and 3 mattresses to the apartment.

We really enjoyed having Pastor Dave and Jess Buckle here for a week. They fit in really well and were a tremendous help to HATS. They got to Canada with no problems, which is a blessing.
