Has it already been 3 months since our last update? No wildlife encounters this time, but one of the highlights over the past few months was a great day trip to Mwanza. We ate legitimate American-style burgers at a new restaurant, got to see Cars 3 at the movie theater, ran some errands, and then went to a party with some friends! It was a GREAT day and reminded us a little of our weekends back in the States!
We also celebrated Levi's 8th birthday, hosted 3 interns from the States for the past two months, and working on the new infant home construction. Full disclosure: I have not done any of the actual construction, but have made lots of decisions about materials, etc. (Trust me, you don't want me building anything someone has to live in).
Yes, 2017 is only half over, but this is an "Annual" report as the Tanzanian government is on a June - July fiscal year so they want Neema House annual report to match their timeline. Sometimes we forget how many things can happen in a year until we look back and see how God has blessed the work of Neema House and it in turn has blessed so many children and families.
There have been so many changes since July last year, but even we did not realize how much was achieved in the past 12 months including;
Children going home
Officially rolling our Maisha Matters malnutrition outreach program
Breaking ground on new infant home
We are so thankful for our family supporters and we ask that you continue to pray for us as we lead Neema House and for our family as well. Please know we think about you a lot here. We wouldn't be here if not for you!
If you ever have any questions about our daily lives, our work, or any crazy thing you heard about Africa or Tanzania, shoot us an email! We're also on Facebook Messenger and What's App.

P.S. - While it doesn't help us directly, soon you will be able to buy Neema House items, like shirts, stickers, and coffee mugs! Also be on the look out for updates to the Neema House website
