Announcing: py2formula

I have finished the first version of my Python-to-Excel-formula program, py2formula.  It is not as ambitious as it sounds: it converts simple Python functions into Excel formulas.  Read more at the project's home page.

Beware: Dala Kwe

It has come to my attention that a Kenyan con man, Simon Ochola, is attempting to rename his operation to continue scamming well-meaning westerners.  The new name is Dala Kwe.  It is unfortunate that Simon continues to hoodwink people in America, and especially when he does it in the name of Jesus.

Simon Ochola - Con Man?

Last year when I visited Kenya, I was convinced that Simon Ochola, director of the children, was a man of God.  Last week I and two other members of Shalom Children Missions made a surprise inspection.  We uncovered fraud, lies, and child neglect.

Please pray for the children during these difficult times, and for Simon to have a change of heart and come back into fellowship.  Please pray also for the other people and ministries that Simon is fooling into following him.
