We had our opening Mass this Thursday, Father John celebrated. He is generous with his time. He gave a very nice, encouraging talk to our students thanking them for giving of their time so they can help to educate the children of South Sudan.
Brother Uche is the newest Solidarity staff. He comes from Nigeria. This very first week he’s come was his birthday. Sister Margaret made him a cake and we went out to dinner. The newest place we’ve been introduced to is the cafeteria at the UN compound. The food was very good.
I have seen reports that 2014 is the warmest year on record at least in some parts of the world. 2015 is starting out to be the coldest dry season. We are using blankets every night. The local people have also said it is unusually cold. It is still getting pretty hot during the day though.
