Loki, for short. We’re still working on moving there, hopefully by July. Actually? We’ll just have to see. The big issue there is housing. AIM IS is coming to a concensus. So far it looks like the plan is for us to build a small house that will later double as both garage and guest house and move into that. Once we’re moved in we’ll begin construction on something larger and more comfortable. First, though, the real decision has to be made, and we’re still waiting on that.

In other news, it’s pretty quiet around here. Flying is a little slow, mostly because of some maintenance that’s piled up all at the same time (routine inspections on the aircraft) and because of some special events. RVA does an “interim” every year in March for the juniors and seniors, and we support the interims. In this case it means two aircraft gone for the better part of a week. SO…flyiing is slow.

We’re using the down time for some forward planning, though. Next month are presidential elections in Sudan. None of the news we’re getting from there is encouraging, so we’re looking at evacuation scenarios for missionaries in various places. Many missionaries are leaving before the elections. Others are gathering in central locations easily secured. And so we’re looking at options if we have to go pull folks out. Elections are April 11th there, with results to be announced a week later. We’ll see how it goes.
