Christian Rita BarbaraThese good folks with Barbara are Rita and her husband, Christian who manage the Christ’s Hope International mission here.  And Rita is our Afrikaans tutor!  We spend two hours with her about twice per week.  She is careful not to go too fast for us and makes an effort to use the simpler, shorter words when we are chatting.  And that is all we do for two hours…chat.  She is full of good will even in the face of funding shortages and meager progress with the children and families served by her mission.  But the Peace Corps pays for our tutoring and Rita considers it a donation for the mission’s work.

Thank you, Rita!
