Today's picture shows twin girls posing with a police officer. I am not sure where the picture was taken, but it does look a little like the White House. It looks like other pictures I have seen taken of people visiting the White House. I can not be sure, but that would be my guess.
As many of you know, the Lovely Ms. EAM has been in Africa for the last 7 months serving as village nurse for the Mattaw Children's Village. She came down with Malaria, and basically has not been able to shake it. She has been sick for going on 2 months now, and all the malaria and medications have taken their toll and basically she was just not able to turn the corner and start getting well and getting her strength back. So, the people she works for, and her family decided the time had come that she MUST come home and seek modern medical attention. Our concern then became that she would have to be well enough to actually get on the airplane for the long trip home. I am happy to say that she departed Africa last night, made it safely to London, and is now on her way to Dallas, where Mrs. PJM and I will pick her up this afternoon. Kim Huffman, who started Mattaw, was kind enough to accompany Miss EAM on her trip back to Dallas. The concern was that she would get halfway home and have another relapse and then not have anyone to tend to her. So, I appreciate all the prayers and kind wishes from you all. I believe that once we get her home and to modern doctors we can get things sorted out and get her health and strength back. And, many HUGE thanks to Bud and Kim Huffman who were incredible in taking care of her in this tough situation. Oh, and I asked her if she could bring Georgie back with her, but she said that would be frowned on by village management.
