Kawajas again

After a longer time away than we had intended, we are "kawajas" again-- back in South Sudan, where foreigners are called "kawaja" by the locals.  Gone are the past months of relatively blending in-- once again, we are noticed when we go out.  Especially now, as many foreigners have left and not yet returned to South Sudan.

We arrived back safely, without any serious difficulties, on January 25th.  The hospital, His House of Hope, reopened on Monday January 27th, and by the end of the first day there were 7 patients in the hospital, and 11 babies were born by Friday-- including 2 C-sections and one set of twins.  Almost all of our hospital staff have returned, and none were harmed-- though some had family and friends that were hurt or killed in the violence of the past month.

Life in the Perry home is also getting back to normal, with home schooling, chores, cooking meals, playing with friends at the orphanage, going to church, and encouraging one another in following Jesus.
