During the time I am in rural Umphumulo there will be an ordination. I get to read the Old Testament lesson at the ceremony! In Costa Rica and certainly China there was no request for any clergy type work so I am looking forward to this.

Clothing: I am informed the in rural South Africa women "of a certain age" do not wear pants in formal setting like church. I'll take a skirt just in case I reach "that age" on the trip! Like Ireland there is no central heat and it will be winter there - 40-60 degrees every day - so I am putting in more socks and fewer tank tops!

I'm up to the Boer War in Michenener's Covenant, but found some good points to fit into today's sermon. I think that makes the book purchase tax deductible.....
