We went to see Wycliffe and Selene in their new house the other day.  Wycliffe has been after us to go see the house now that they’ve moved.  It’s bigger than their old house…there’s room in it for a couch and 2 chairs, and a little space for cooking.  The house is rough timber framing holding up mabati (corrugated sheet metal).  They have electricity, and there’s water nearby, and long drop toilets and bath facilities.  They are very pleased to be in the new place.
School is going well for Selene, though they’re chafing over the expenses the school didn’t warn them about: all the supplies and the need to get 20 people to come in for each procedure so she can learn how to do nails or hair or whatever.

Brian, their son, though is another matter.  He’s been removed from the pre-school he was in.  We’re working with another missionary family, the Browns (actually they’re doing most of the work, since we can’t really do it from Gatab) to get Brian assessed by doctors. We suspect at least a learning disability, if not some mental retardation.  He’s getting his hearing checked on Wednesday, beyond that, we’ll see.  We’d suspected something was not right with Brian the first time we met the whole family.  It’s good they’re finally getting some real help for him.  Wycliffe has been a faithful worker for a number of AIM families for some time.  We need to take care of our own.
