Our neighbors, James and Joy Crismon who are also humanitarian missionaries had a terrible thing happen to them today, Sunday. They were walking toward the subway station when Sister Crismon tripped or slipped on some newly trimmed tree leaves/branches, fell and broke her hip. Luckily she fell only a few hundred yards from the house. We were not at home and did not find out any of this until in the afternoon. She needs hip surgery. They are trying to figure out how to go to Miami, Florida to receive the operation and then go home for recuperation and therapy. This is so sad because they were making a major contribution. We are very sad for them and pray the Lord to bless them. Joy continues in her cheerful sweet frame of mind in spite of the trial that has come into her life. She is such an example to the rest of us.

We learned way too much about chickens and eggs this week!For all the pictures and movies: CLICK HERE
The next stop nearly killed us! The moment we opened the car door, the stench nearly knocked us flat. We suffered until the moment we were nothing but taillights; everything made us sick. The pens were large filthy disease infested putrefied jails with 1000s of sick looking birds. We wandered around taking a few pictures to learn what we could while the veterinarian we were with walked through the flocks looking for dead chickens. He found ten, which he proceeded to dissect and diagnose the cause of death. We were not a bit sorry to leave the place and resolved to never eat a commercial chicken again, even if it is the national dish!
