Recent Pictures from Mark and Diane's life in Chad

Every morning from February on the sun rises with a fury in Chad, pushing temperatures well over 100 degrees by mid morning, and making the best ventilated home (like ours) a furnace at night. Bereft of the luxury of air conditioning, we, like most missionaries, slept outside from February through April. 

As we write now in June, all that is changing as the rainy season approaches and heavy storms roll in from the northeast.

This past year our harvest in Chageen was good, though in some other parts of Chad it was flooded out. In April, we were called upon to purchase food to help some of these unfortunate folks. Mark spend a fair bit of time arranging for this, stocking the grain in our granary, and then shipping it to the stricken areas when the time came.
