I had brisket for dinner tonight.
[Is that a strange first sentence for my first blog post in two years?]
And it was delicious.
[You see, though, the second sentence wouldn’t have made any sense without that first one.]
Our family is currently in the US. We’re about half-way through a 9-week furlough / home assignment. We’re visiting with family, reporting to sponsoring churches, and trying to do some fundraising. Also, tonight I’m in the mood to make promises:
I commit to post to the blog at least twice a month.
Several former readers have asked during our time in the US why I don’t blog anymore. And at least as many non-readers have asked me if I have a blog where I update interested folks on our lives and work in Tanzania. So I’ve decided to resurrect aliens and strangers. It may be different — I’ve probably changed a little bit over the last couple of years (and I’m guessing none of those changes have to do with improved writing ability) — and I’m not promising it will be interesting, or even informative. But I am going to start writing some on the blog again… at least two posts per month.
Thanks for still being here,
