Thursday - Day 14
I've been remiss in writing, sorry.
In summary we finished quite a few things on Tuesday.  On Wednesday classes began.  Of course we were still working on running network wiring to rooms that were not being used.
Update on power at the house ... city power - EDH - has come on the past several nights.  The inverter worked, the batteries charged, Cathy ran the washing machine, we pumped water.  When we got up in the morning fans were running, batteries were charged well by EDH.  Life is better.
Another power issue ... at the Technical School there is no EDH power.  We have a diesel generator to charge our battery bank.  The generator has not been running as we expected.  Maybe I've already commented on it.  Anyway, after changing to a heavier weight oil, things are much better.
Today I was able to break off and address a few tasks at College St Louis.  Got to help Fr Luxo with a WiFi issue, replaced 2 broken laptops, changed to a larger network switch, found a few missing items. 

I've had trouble sleeping the last few nights ... heat, dogs, thunder but no rain ... too many thing swirling in my head.  This has been a long trip, really miss Mary Ann ... lots.  Can't wait to get home tomorrow night.

We're winding down, assessing our stay, packing for the flight home.
I hope to wrap this blog up some time Saturday after we're home.  In the meantime, we all ask for your prayers for a safe return and we thank God for the many blessings we have all received in our lives and the opportunity to share our knowledge and understanding with a few people in Jeremie.
