In the morning I went over to the "restaurant" area in the open and had coffee. It was a beautiful morning and I really enjoyed sitting and going through the notes of my messages for the day.
We discover that we have great internet connectivity through my Blackberry...even out here at the Lake. There is a cell phone tower nearby and I have great communiction with the world. I'm able to be on Facebook and Tweet pictures from here regularly from my cell phone.
We quickly see that the owner British lady is something else. She is rude, abusive to her staff and started to be that way towards our Festival goers. She was not happy that some were cooking food in their rooms. That could be correct, but the abusive behavior was unacceptable to us. Bev ultimately told them that we just didn't want to hear and see this type of behavior towards our guests and the staff. It was all "blood" this and "bloody" that. She agreed to not being abusive to the guests, but said that she couldn't be told to be that way towards staff. She could do what she wanted.
In the morning I spoke about "Why We Keep the Feast." And in the afternoon I game a sermon about the Book of Ecclesiastes. This book was read at the Feast of Tabernacles. Its message is that you can have everything that life offers, but without God and His values, His righteousness it is all vanity and uselessness
We had lunch with the Chilopora's and Chiku at Fat Monkeys.
Afterwards, we came back, had an evening with the Khembo’s and made all kinds of arrangements as I think about the different sermons that I have yet to give.
Mosquitos were bad and we spent an our clearing out the inside of our mosquito net of the mosquitos. Some had blood. Hope they were not carrying malaria. That’s the last thing we need here.
We wanted to visit two of our projects out in this direction, but we could not take 25 miles of horrible washboard roads that are so destructive on automobiles. We will interview the people who are here at the Feast and get pictures from them later. Bvunguti Bekani brought us photos of a rest house that we helped finance for him. It has 20 rooms and he charge 250 kw a night. That’s $1.60 a night. It cannot be booked in hotels.com.
