Kenya, BA and Bhete

Thanks to all who prayed for my recent trip to Kenya. By and large
I achieved what I went for and had quite a few other opportunities to
help individual missionaries with their IT needs. My overall impression
was that we in AIM have a long way to go in providing better IT support
for ordinary missionaries who don't work in our office locations. Would
you fancy a job travelling around Africa helping missionaries overcome
their computer problems? Let me know if you are interested.

It turned out that Luke's sickness before I left was due to a urine
infection. Margo had a real struggle getting him to take some
unpleasant tasting medicine, but he seems fine now anyway.

I arrived back last Wednesday morning having actually managed to
sleep for about 5 hours on a night flight! This may have been because
BA's fancy new 70 channel video-on-demand in-flight entertainment
system crashed about five times before they finally switched it off –
(it did appear to be running under MS Windows). However my good sleep
probably had more to do with another recent innovation: someone should
award a Nobel prize to whoever invented those little cushioned wings
which fold down from the headrest on modern airline seats – not only do
they help you sleep, they stop you drooling over the person in the next
seat. One video BA did manage to show before the system crashed was a
ten minute presentation of the beds in Clubworld class – another way
of winding up passengers like me who will never afford that kind of
comfort.

Thanks to the Brigada
missions newsletter I just had a look at Gospel recordings website. If
you are interested in what the Bhete of Gagnoa language actually sounds
like then go to this page
and listen to one of the audio files listed at the bottom. The songs
aren't the best example of Bhete singing, but will give you an idea of
what it was like to be in a Bhete church. The site also has a good
article by a Wycliffe member called Evangelism for Computer Nerds which gives some insight into the world of mission IT.
