Four Photos and Stories About What We Did in May


Snow Art
We celebrated John’s 86th birthday with Rowayton friends outdoors on their terrace. All of us had been vaccinated, and it was good to be together without having to wear masks and not having to keep six feet from each other.

Flower Seed Heart
Our small group met at the Raymond Boathouse in Pinkney Park in Rowayton, beside the Five Mile River. We finished our study and discussion of “Galatians – Engaging God’s Word”. We had done the first five lessons on Zoom, and then we were able to meet in person for the last lesson.

“Deer”
In Nairobi, we visited Rossholme Education Centre in Kiambiu slum. There are now 237 little students there in six classes. At the end of July, when everyone advances and the grade 4 students move ahead into grade 5 and new Play Group children arrive, there will be 260 students.

Cardinal
We went to Bisil, which is on the way to Tanzania, to visit three young Masai women. One is in second year of secondary school, one has finished secondary school and wants to go to an agricultural college, and one has her own sewing business. Some mothers and members of their Friends Church joined us for our lunch under the tree.
