Lorhn

We took a trip back out to Lorhn, Margibi County, recently. This was a real family adventure! Lorhn is about 3 hours from the city. We took a crew of about 16 and headed into the bush. We all slept in the little village. It was a great trip!



The trip started off with a breakdown. Our truck was overheating BIG TIME!! But, we still made it, just very SLOW......:-)


The boys relaxing in the back while we waited for the truck to cool down.


Alex enjoying Matty while we waited yet again for the truck to cool down! Alex is on our music team and comes for all of our events to lead the praise and worship time.

Finally getting close! This is one of 3 interesting bridges that we had to cross.


Slipped into the mud trying to line up for the second bridge.

Back on our way! Everyone loading up.....
YES!!! We made it!

Matty having an African bath. He is an old pro, they have bathed him like this in this village many times already.


We spent 2 nights here in Lorhn. The first evening we played the Jesus film on our projector and it was wonderful.
We took a break in the movie to speak briefly and also to present the town with soccer uniforms for the local team!



Mark presenting the gifts to one of the town elders. They were very happy!!!! They have asked us to also provide a hand pump for the town, as they have no safe drinking water. We hope to do this very soon.



I will post on the rest of the trip soon. What a great time of fun, fellowship and ministry!
