No, I’m not referring to the Lamb’s Book of Life (although I hope you’re in there too!) I’m talking about FACEBOOK

Rob succumbed when our American friend, Lauren, (here’s her blog) got set up and it’s such FUN!

Basically, you find friends (by generally perusing names or by looking at friends’ friends), then add them to your profile. Then you can send them messages, do quizzes or even throw a sheep at them! Being where we are, this is a FAB way to keep in touch with our worldwide friends. If you’re on Facebook, look me up and become my friend! A word of warning – this is seriously addictive, and I’m going to have to limit my time on it, especially as I have half a dozen local musicians and church leaders to interview in the next couple of weeks!

Other news…

* Lois is travelling to Ghana for a schools conference. Pray for a safe journey, especially as there are elections in Togo this Sunday.

* School is on an extremely early half term break this week (due to the aforementioned conference…)

* Rainy season persists and, even though it’s supposed to be the petite saison des pluies more rain is falling than in the big rainy season.

* Lois is planning on joining Facebook too – watch this space!

* There are roadworks in central Cotonou, which makes driving chaotic (what’s new??? Should I say even more chaotic than usual?!).
Actually, all this work will improve driving in town significantly, which is a good thing.

And finally…

Madelaine has been getting creative with Uno cards:


That’s all for now!
