Dear Mom and Dad,

…In line with working at getting closer to the people, an elder in a village about 25 miles from here has given me the use of a house in his boma (compound). He had eleven wives, a few living there and others scattered around the countryside, working small plots. One of the six who lived at the main plot died not too long ago. A daughter who ran away from her husband was living there for a while, but now has a new house about a quarter of a mile away. This leaves one house free in the boma and he is letting me use it two or three days every week.
