Just got an email from our airplane guy in Oklahoma...
It looks like they have a couple of issues that will slow the project down for now....
1) There is a "factory recall" regarding a part in the engine. They will have to replace this part. So, they will have to wait until the new parts are sent to them and then put them in. No telling how long this may take. They said they may have the parts by the end of the week, but I'm not holding my breath on that.
2) The business that did all of our avionics work for us did not do a critical inspection to certify the airplane for flying in instrument conditions, so this inspection has yet to be done. We are hopeful that this will only take a day or two.
3) The gentleman who is in charge of the project is out of the country from the 13th to the 23rd, and things won't progress without him around.
So, we'll be fortunate to see the airplane start the journey to Africa by the end of the month.
That's the update for now. The Lord is teaching me a whole new level of patience!
