July was the coldest month so we really savored the days when the sun shone, especially if it was laundry day and all our clothes dried outside on the lines.

We Talk With Each Other We visited Benson who is in Form One at St. Bridget’s Secondary School for the Deaf, near Busia and the border of Uganda. It opened in 2010 - and it’s the first of its kind, as a third of the students are from the surrounding community and they are not deaf.

We Want to be Smart Destiny Shapers is a new creche and kindergarten in Meru. It was started by a friend who was with Ripples International and whom we have known for the 10 years that we lived in Meru. What she did in three months to get her school up and running is truly amazing.




She’s Sixteen and Beautiful We met her ten years when she was in nursery school and in the Chemichemi program of Ripples International. Her home has no TV and she hasn’t seen fashion magazines; but she likes to pose for photos and to take photos too of her family members. The government’s “Last Mile” program has provided a pole in the family’s compound, but there’ll be no power ‘til her mum can pay for the wiring and connection.







You are not Welcome Here Going on safari in Meru National Park, where there are very few tourists, and staying in a banda, is almost liking going back a hundred years. The landscape is the same - and so are the animals - only we aren’t Karen Blixen and Denis Fitch-Hatten. We’ve gone safari many times - and have been to almost all the parks - and we have seen all animals. But every once in a while we see something we’ve never seen before - like two bull elephants challenging each other for territory.







Please pray with us –

Father, Son & Holy Spirit,
thank you for everyone and everything
You have placed in our lives.
Please help us each day to spend time with You
so as to strengthen our relationship with You.
Please let Your light shine on every situation we face.
and help us to know which problems we can solve,
and which ones we need to let go of
and let You provide the solutions for.
