This is a picture of our gate and our gateman, Rami.

Rami opens our gate for us both leaving and returning.  He also takes care of the small front yard here.  We have 4 missionaries who are living upstairs from us.  Gary managed to get Rami a mattress and install a shower head for him out by his living quarters.  

Here are some photos of our place.  It is surrounded by walls which are topped by barbed wire and all the windows and doors have metal bars.

Notice the mosquito netting.  Malaria is a constant threat.  In fact, Rami thought he had malaria so we had to give him a malaria test.  They are small and easy to administer, requiring several drops of blood in the tester.  Happily, he didn't have malaria.  Just sick.
