Nobody was hurt but we all got quite a rush out of this road rage incident. All of the young men hit the floor of the car when the elephant charged and needless to say their first safari was an exciting one. I think we will wait awhile to get the car repaired as it is such a good story, plus I don't think our insurance will cover an accident with a wild elephant.

|We have the blessing of working with a great group of independant baptist missionaries in Tanzania. We get together once a year for a time of fellowship, planning, and preaching. We cooperate in areas such as youth camps and training leadership through Bible Institute and national pastors meetings.|
Augustino has been a faithful church member and also teaches at the Truth Learning Center. (See picture above.) He is also one of our Bible Institute students and was able to graduate from the first level of this training which focuses on serving in the local church. He is leading our Sunday night youth meetings and is continuing in the leadership level of the Bible Institute.
|One of the great blessings of living in Tanzania is being surrounded by God's creation. While on "safari" I saw these elephants dancing "trunk to trunk."|
|Even while sitting down this camel was taller than Caleb. He got to ride this camel on a recent trip to Arusha when we took some time out to have some fun.|
|The crocodile hunter? Hardly. This is about as big of a croc that I will hold.|
|Sarah celebrated her 3rd birthday with a Hello Kitty party complete with custom cake.|
|Caleb turned 8 and we celebrated with missionary friends who came to visit. Caleb is very interested in space and we tease him that he will be the first missionary to the moon.|
|After a busy few months we were able to take our family vacation along the Tanzanian coast. We enjoyed our time together as a family swimming, snorkeling, and playing on the beach.|
