The second floor flooring is finished and an elephant story

We were able to finish all of the second floor flooring on Wednesday. That was a huge accomplishment. Thanks again for all who have helped. It looks really good.
I am sorry that I didn’t write sooner, but we took our visitors to a wildlife park, for a day and a half. We got chased by some elephants. Mama Elephants are trying to protect their young and get mad. It is a rush. They charge the car. Our guide told me that Americans aren’t happy just to see an elephant, but they want to make them mad and get charged. That’s about right. When I got done paying for our stay, I went to get my family and our visitors. They were at a lookout. They were watching two big male elephants in the water. As I was walking to them and about at the lookout, I saw a big gray spot through the trees. I thought to myself, “I don’t remember a bolder being there.” Well I was right. It was an elephant. He was at the door of the lookout. I saw Bro. Jason and Bro. Stephen run back to the lookout. Then I told a worker next to me what was going on. He said, “Oh thats not good.” Well the elephant decided to chase us away. I ran to my room as he approached. He came and ate from a tree that was right next to my room (I think the tree touched our room even. ) I was only about 2-3 yards from him. Well, he decided to leave. Missionary life sure is boring.
