Dear Mom,

…. Sorry for the long delay in writing. I’ll try to do better this year. The money did come and also the shirts, socks and balloons at Christmas time. The big heavy rubber balloons were especially a hit.

We had quite a Chistmas. Jim and Charlotte, the teachers from Oldonyo Sambu were here and of course quite a number or Maasai. We killed a goat and had honey beer.

I took a sick girl to a mission hospital near Dodoma with typhoid a couple of weeks ago. I had a chance to get a chest x-ray, blood tests, etc. – all showed normal.

We haven’t killed your cow yet. It’s been a bad dry season. We’ll wait until he gets a little weight on …….
