It’s wintertime in Kenya now - when the cold air comes up from South Africa where it is colder. There have been some beautiful sunny and warm days, and many cool, foggy, cloudy and rainy days.

Meru Friends We have a new young friend in Meru. He’s from Kitali, and he’s studying medicine at KeMU (Kenya Methodist University). Another young friend is studying at KIM (Kenya Institute of Management), and others are graduates in IT, Nutrition and Community Development.

Elephants Everywhere There was more rain in Kenya during the long rains season than there had been in 20 years - so there’s lots of grass in Samburu Reserve for the elephants, and they have stayed together in large groups. While on a short safari there, we were often surrounded by many elephants.





Home Away From Home Our favorite home away from our Meru home is Simba room in Turaco Cottage at Rondo Retreat Centre in the Kakamega Rain Forest. The forest is home to many birds - and Rondo is a quiet and peaceful place, where we can be still and know God. Our friend, who plays the guitar and sings, really liked Rondo, and he wants his church group to go to there for their retreat in December.





Nambale Scholars We spent four days at The Nambale Magnet School where there are now 392 students in 12 classes, quite an increase from the 35 students that entered in 2009. All of the students have prayer partners in the US, and they will get photos of the children that they’re praying for.







Please pray with us -

Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
please help us to look for the good in people,
to regard problems as opportunities,
to not be frustrated by difficulties and setbacks,
to push ahead when we feel like quitting,
and to accept misunderstandings as the price
for serving the greater good of others.

~ Fr. James Keller, Founder of The Christophers
