The end of Term 2 of the 2021 school year is just a couple of weeks from now. Students in Rossholme Education Centre in Kiambiu slum in Nairobi, in the St. John Bosco Education Program in Kitale, in Nambale Magnet School in Western Kenya, and in the Tumaini Children’s Ministry Program in Nyeri will be writing exams soon. Please pray for them all to stay well - and to do well on their exams.

To learn more about these programs, please see You Can Help.

We are self-supported missioners. We rented our home and our Roton Point unit, and this was the 16th summer that we have lived with local people in Kenya. Last year we kept in touch with our friends there by text and email.

We visited students in schools in six different regions. We also spent time with some young people that we, and many of our friends and family members, have helped to go to colleges and universities. Quite a few of them now have good jobs - and they are helping others to improve their lives.


The Christmas/Holiday Gift Show is on at Rowayton Arts Center - now ‘til December 24th. We hope that you will go there to see and buy some of Marilyn’s framed, and unframed, photos, and her note cards, as well as original, handcrafted items by other local artists, including paper whites and wreaths from Rowayton Gardeners, and jewelry, ceramics, and shell and knit items.

Marilyn will make notecards with any of the new photos she took in Kenya and Jordan. Please see Photo Gallery and let her know which ones you’d like.
