The leaves are down and there’s been a bit of frost – and we’ve seen a few snowflakes, but mostly it’s been warm and it often feels more like spring than fall.

Campaigning for Bosco Kids St. John Church in Darien has sponsored students in the St. John Bosco program in Kitale, Kenya for the past eight years. It is now raising funds for the Educational Trust so that 45 of them can go back to their Catholic boarding schools when the new school year starts in January.

Young Engineers We attended the International Mechanical Engineering Conference and Exposition (IMECE) in Phoenix. It is now 16 years since John was the President of ASME, the sponsoring organization. He enjoyed seeing his old friends again – and some young ones too. He mentored a young woman when she was a student, and now she is now very active in the Society. She attended the conference with her husband and son and daughter.






Christmas Gifts in Rowayton The Christmas Gift Show at Rowayton Arts Center opened the weekend before Thanksgiving. Four of Marilyn’s photos are for sale there, as well as her note cards, with photos taken in Kenya and in Italy, where we spent ten days on our way back home from Kenya last September.




We Gathered Together We had an international Thanksgiving Dinner – with seven Americans, two Kenyans, one Canadian and one Mexican. And we feasted on the traditional turkey, stuffing, gravy, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie and pumpkin bread and also mokemo and chapatis, both Kenyan festive foods, and Italian risotto.





Please pray with us –

Dear Lord, help us to see the image of You
in everyone we meet.
Help us to see people as You see them –
not important because
of what they do or how they look,
but because You love them
enough to have died for them.
