January 30th


Monday January 30th, 1967
Mombasa, Kenya
Sent Sue 8 carved napkin holders, Mrs. Duncan 6, and the three coats that I had borrowed from Sue and it cost 17 shillings.  I got letters today from Mama and from a little G.A. in Knoxville who said, “I hope you can come to Knoxville someday.”  Tim Milligan spent the night with us.  His parents have gone hunting.  M.G. visited the Masons tonight and looked at their slides.  After he came home we looked at our slides of the sable antelope.

Looks like Mom was sending the African trinkets back to the US today.  It is easy to see how the postage rates have changed in 40 years or so.  I have said before how letters from home are like gold on the field.  Mom even got to keep a promise to a little G.A. girl in Knoxville.

Dad was always on the lookout for instruction in how to take good pictures and evidently school was in session over at the Mason’s.  I can truly say that I have never seen a missionary slide show that holds a candle to Dad’s production.

On a side note I am trying to get him into the 21st century soon as he will be doing his first PowerPoint presentation in the next few weeks.  I will let you know how it goes.
