Day 12

Today we are planing to push out the 207 and do the engine set ups, test runs and test flight. We are a little behind schedule after running into some difficulties that were unexpected. Nothing major and we factored in some extra time for just such a problem so we are still sitting ok time wise.
Over the weekend we had the opportunity to visit the hydro station. It is a 750,000 watt hydro electric plant powered by the Zambezi river. It was completed a few years ago and up till then the locals and missionaries either had nothing or had to run off generators. Having reliable continuous electricity is a luxury that people here have just started to enjoy.

The pen stock holds and cleans the water before it goes through the turbine.

Thank you for your prayers for my family, our safety and our health. Josh
