The guys gathered near the well return the greeting - "Praise the Lord!" The women drawing water wave to me too. Running over to see what they are all looking at, I stop at the well to splash water on my face. Refreshing! No wonder this is where they are on such a hot day.
In the middle of the circle of men is one of the missionaries, showing them how to properly measure, cut, and assemble wood for what looks like a large cabinet. Ah - it's the job training course. These guys used to just hang around all day in the big town. Not anymore. Someday I'll be a working man too, but not yet - I'm finishing school first!
*Bwana asifwe: "Praise the Lord!" is a customary greeting among Swahili-speaking Christians in East Africa.
