The heavy rains and floods and landslides had ended, and there were mostly blue skies and sunshine during our first ten days in Kenya.

First Time Swimming The Methodist Guest House, in the Lavington area of Nairobi, was our home away from home. We enjoyed living in the Bishop's Suite, with its balcony above the swimming pool, where we saw the sun rise and heard birds in the morning. Our young Life Ministry friends and their two beautiful daughters also enjoyed being there with us on Saturday morning - and then we all enjoyed having pizza for lunch.

Long Time Friends On Sunday morning, we took a bus downtown, and met more young friends for mass at the Basilica - and then had lunch with them at Java House. We have known some of these young people since 2005 and 2006 when we, and they, lived in Tumaini Children’s Home in Nyeri.




Rossholme Babies We spent two days at Rossholme Education Centre in Kiambiu slum. The Centre was started by our young friend, Joyce, and there are 100 preschoolers there now. Marilyn took photos of all of them, and a nurse friend weighed the children and measured their upper arms to see if any of them were mal-nourished. None were.




Masai Friends We travelled to Masii, Kajiado and Bissil to visit three students, one in Form 4, one in Form 3 and one in Class 8. We were impressed with how well these young Masai women from traditional, pastoralist families are doing in school.






Please pray with us -

Lord, help us
to appreciate beauty;
to find the best in others;
to give of ourselves;
to leave the world a little better,
whether by children who are in school,
or young people working at jobs;
to play and laugh with enthusiasm,
and sing with exultation;
to know some lives have breathed easier
because You are here with us - and with them.
