Dear Parents,

I apologize that your children have kept you in the dark for so long. Curry and I have asked them several times to update the blog, but for some reason they haven’t been able to do so yet.

To be fair, long work days (building a cow shed and chicken coop for AIDS orphans), limited internet connections, and frequent power outages made updating the blog from Fort Portal very challenging. However, Curry and I will be having a meeting with them this evening discussing laziness, integrity, and honesty. You see, Kevin informed me this morning that he had, in fact, already updated the blog. So imagine my dismay to log on and find out that they are still negligent! Again, my sincere apologies.

To rectify the situation, I have just spoken with Jessie, asking her to relay a message to the entire group that I want EACH of them to do an individual update before they go to sleep tonight. If they are unable to comply, we may have to forgo the rafting trip on the Nile until they do.

Rest assured that we’re all safe and sound, and that everyone is in good spirits. Hopefully you’ll hear from each of them very soon regarding the incredible things we’ve experienced since arriving in Uganda.

Peace&Blessings;,
Zik
