Tonight puts us at 11 days without electricity, which is our record from previous times.  The power company brought the transformer back from Kampala, but they have decided to move the location so that it will be inside the compound of a hotel that is across the street from us.  They are hoping that this deters further transformer sabotage.  The holes have been dug for the new poles, so possibly this week we will get our electricity restored.  As we were waiting for Keith & Shane to bring back petro for running the generator tonight, the rest of us were eating by candlelight.  My camera makes it look a lot brighter than it actually was, for I could barely see Skyler and Savannah when I was taking their picture. 

Stanley showed Savannah how to make shadow-pictures on the walls, so she had a lot of fun in watching Stanley's "dinosaur" gobble her up.  Shae-Lynn made some comment about how nice it was to have a candlelight dinner.  Our first term on the mission field ruined any thoughts I had about how romantic candlelight dinners were.  We ate by candlelight so much that I told Keith during our first furlough to take me to the brightest lit restaurant around!  Jesus is referred to as the "Light of the World."  To be a light that covers the whole world...well, I think Jesus likes bright lights, too!

"Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life."  John 8:12
