It is 6:15 pm Wednesday night.  The team is pushing to stay awake until 8 pm so we can acclimate to our new time zone.

We landed around 8 am this morning.  After customs, an abnormally long wait for bags, and a money exchange, we exited the airport to meet up with our longtime partners, Shafique and Anita.  They have welcomed Kingsland teams for a decade.  If you haven’t read Kay’s post about Anita from last year, you should!

We made a quick stop to pick up a few supplies and then headed to the BMS.  Our rooms were already ready so we were able to drop our luggage and then head out for a bit of shopping and lunch. This picture is taken at Sunshine’s, our favorite shopping “hidden gem”.

We met tonight to organize supplies by day. We are ready for eight full days of ministry!  We start tomorrow with New Hope School and a new justice ministry, A Loyal Workshop.  Check out their products; they have beautiful leather goods.

Goodnight from the City of Joy!
