Dear Mom,

…. We have begun to get rain just in the past five days. Before that it was dry for so long that people had begun to move away from the immediate area of Kijungu, sending warriors with the cattle to areas where it has rained. But they will all be back shortly now if the rain continues. I used your black stone for the first time on a girl with a snake bite – it works!

The radio you sent still works with the batterys you sent and the meat thermometer works well too. Goat seems to take about the same scale as beef ….
