Dear Mom and Dad,

As much as I enjoyed seeing and visiting with all of you, it feels very good to be back “home”. All of the guys in the diocese were in town when I arrived, having one of our regular quarterly meetings. This gave me a chance to see every one right away.

The Bishop talked to me last night, telling me that I will not be going back to Loliondo in North Maasailand where I’ve been for the last four years. He’s sending me South to the other end of Maasai country, to a place called Kijungu. It is an area, where up to now very little progress has been made. This presents a real challenge. The tribe is the same, and so are the customs and language. I’ll quickly feel at home there. More about Kijungu later.
