Update # 8

Updates by Michael Lavoie


Good Fortune, Perserverance and Precedence in Namtenga. How can one explain the
Thrill when, after failing on Wednesday, and with only remote cell phone contact,  we managed to succeed with a Skype face to face audio and visual hook-up between Namtega and Brookside School in Bloomfield Hills,Michigan! The first time in human
history!   And, best of all, it was between 2 elementary school kids on each side. Clear your mind and think about the wonder of  it.   In the opinion of all who were present in namtenga, it eclipsed all of the other already extraordinary moments of the 3 anniversary celebrations, each separately standing for peace, independence and friendship.

Now, we move on to the next stop, probably six hours away, in oauhagouya.

 

Stay tuned for more updates!
