Ne Lu Mateha Maabani!

Yesterday, we got the privilege to go to a local Baptist pastor's village to help mud his house.  It was great fun and hard work.  The girls got jumped right into the mud and worked hard for almost 2 hours!

Here, the house is almost done.  Jeff is taking a short break while the ladies continued to work.  I can't say anything bad about that because I was also taking a break while shooting some pictures. :)
Levi had to stay on the mat all day and by the Lord's grace, he didn't seem to mind too much.  Here we are, waiting to eat lunch and all the kids gathered around us.  If you can't tell, Levi is saying "CHEEEEESE".
This sweet girl, great with child, was cooking our buhobe which is the staple of the Lozi people.  It is almost like grits.  The Lozi have this for every meal and then have some relish or fish or something else to go along with it.
