Joe Herzstein arrived a week and a half ago here in Kijungu. Although I was making out by myself, it’s good to have him here. He didn’t gain the weight the rest of us seemed to on leave. I guess he was kept very busy with collections all the time he was home. We had a celebration the day after he arrived. I killed one of my goats and had a few people in to meet him.
We’re going to have a good Christmas celebration. About twenty of us got together last Sunday and decided to put in twenty shillings ($3) each. Will buys goats, cookies and candy for the children. There will be a Mass the morning of the twenty-fifth and the celebration in the evening. I’ll write to you all about it.
