Dr. Bob Skankey, his wife Louine and Rachel Diana Charles Phillips arrived on the humanitarian plane from Niamey on Friday and solar Rich left on the same plane. We stayed one night in Agadez and headed out the next morning to see the new finished education and visitors center. I will wait until I get it a little decorated before I show you photos of it.
The beginning of the medical clinic was delayed a bit by the very important moslem holiday of Tabaski. Since the midwives to be trained could not come on the day of the fete (which was not known until the day before the fete) and was celebrated on Sunday in Agadez and on Monday in the bush where we are, the midwives could not come until Tuesday. So we had a night to party
