Commuting to Olbalbal

I’m here at Ngorongoro mission with Fr. Joe Herzstein. At the new mission, we are putting up a small building with three rooms, one living and sleeping, a store room and an inside bathroom. In the meantime, I am staying at Ngorongoro mission and doing the work at Olbalbal from here. Fr. Joe’s mission is on the lip of the crater and about an hour and a half by car from Olbalbal.

The new place is some six thousand feet lower and out on the plains. I’m expecting to begin living at Olbalbal in a month’s time. This past Sunday was my first Sunday with the Christian community at Meshili, Olbalbal. After the service, there was roasted goat and a little time to get acquainted. Today, Tuesday, I’m off to another Maasai village at Olbalbal, Ngoile. There will be a service and time with the people there.

    Sounds like you hit the ground running. What are you doing for transportation?

    Your new place looks good. Do you have any info on your new truck? Sharon leaves for Detroit today. I will spend Christmas with Annie & Warren in Vt. Merry Christmas to you.
