We've got them swinging from the chandeliers tonight! We couldn't fit another person in sideways. There is a family in one room, a pastor from Switzerland in another, a lady who works for the Minister of Education in another room, a different pastor in another, Theirry in another, Dorothy in the living room, and a Bible translator who left Bamenda until after the elections in another. And at 10:30 p.m. the guard woke us up to tell us there was another person who had just arrived! So I drugged myself downstairs to talk with John. He had spent two weeks with us and then went to his father's village for a few days. He was due back tomorrow morning, but decided to come in tonight instead. Thankfully Theirry has two beds in his room and he is extra flexible and kind. He was willing to take John in on short notice. Tomorrow John will get his own room and things will calm down a bit. Just a little bit. All the other places where people can stay (SIL, CABTAL, etc.) are full to the max also. The war in the SW and NW has brought many people to town. With elections in just nine days, there is much unrest
We leave in the morning for the village. There will only be six of us in the house so it will seem quite empty after this!
