Quick update from the church computer

Well, Sunday Number Three is in the bag and went well. Still learning names and faces, but the natives are friendly.

We moved Sassy and Cuthbert yesterday. They did fine on the trip over, but Sassy wants to go "home" now. She's pouting and depressed. Cuthbert is mostly just wired, restless. We moved their furniture: Sassy's beat-up old armchair and Cuthbert's high-rise. So they have more comforts available than we do, thank-you-very-much.

We are currently without computers and 'net at home, but hope to get that fixed this week.

Prayers please for our friend Jessi, who had open-heart surgery Friday and did well. She's on the mend, and I'm hoping to see her tomorrow or sometime soon.
