Our time here in the States so far has been very blessed and very busy. In the midst of it all, though, we miss our home. We are home for about 3.5 months, and then less than two weeks after we return to South Africa in September, Brian & Lois Niehoff will be returning here to the States for a few months of their own.
In the meantime, two girls from the Slater area, Mallory and Laurie, have joined The Village to help fill in the staffing gaps. Mallory will be there until January 18th when the Niehoff's return, and Laurie will be returning to the States with the Niehoffs in September. While they are there they are keeping busy picking up the slack...on several occasions even serving as temporary houseparent's while our others are on break.
I took the liberty of pirating some of the photos and video they have posted. It looks like they are enjoying themselves. Here are a couple things you might enjoy.
