This was a month of many gatherings with friends who encouraged us as we started planning for our fourteenth summer in Kenya.

Friends of NMS Rev. Evalyn Wakhusama, founder and director of The Nambale Magnet School in Western Kenya, spent two weeks visiting WIKS-USA board members, three churches and many friends who are supporting the 343 students of NMS.

Renewed Women  “Becoming a New Creation in Christ” was the theme of the St. John Church Women’s Retreat, which 48 women attended. It was held at the beautiful Convent of St. Birgitta in the Tokenecke area of Darien.




Celebrating With Tracy Barrett Bookstore in Noroton Heights hosted the celebration for the launch of Tracy Fox’s two new books – “Happy Self” and “Happy Marriage”, as well as her first book, a daily devotional entitled “Having a Heart for God”. It was great to see her husband and two teenage sons and many friends supporting and cheering her on – as writing a book is, as she said, “a lonely endeavor”.





Pie for Everyone Pi Day (or rather evening) at Noroton Presbyterian Church was a fun event for families with young children - and for grandparents too. Everyone got to taste and judge 23 entries, including pizza, Sheherd’s Pie, quiche, chicken pot pie – and then for dessert, apple, cherry, blueberry, lemon, banana cream and pecan pies.






Please pray with us –

Come, Holy Spirit,
replace the tension within us
with holy relaxation,
replace the turbulence within us
with sacred calm,
replace the anxiety within us
with quiet confidence, and
replace the fear within us
with strong faith.

~Christ Renews HIS Parish
