Technology is amazing.   Moses sent more pictures this morning all the way from Tanzania and now we are sending one to you.  This picture is especially grand because the women are smiling at what looks like the pigs eating melons or gourds.  And you can see the women’s homes behind them.  It was heartening too to  hear from Moses that Father Jairus is helping and supporting the women in caring for the pigs when they need any kind of medical intervention.  We were concerned about how the men of the village would react to succesful women since in that culture women take a backseat to the men ~ you know if they can only afford to educate one child it will be the male child who gets the education.  This is a case of the priests and church elders educating the villagers and the men are “getting it.”  Hooray indeed!
