I’ve struggled with writing this post, because it will sound like I hate Kenya.  This is not at all true…there are many amazing, wonderful things about this country that I like and am learning to truly appreciate.  However, driving is NOT one of them.  I am thankful for a van that I can drive, so I have some freedom and … Read More

So recently I have had a lot of questions about what life is like here in Nairobi. Some of those questions are the usual “you live in Africa” questions, like do we see lions a lot, do we speak African, and do we have power.

Today I went to the Bible study that the ladies of New City Fellowship have each month. I haven’t had the chance to go yet because I was out of the country, and before that, honestly, I was too emotionally drained to invest in people that I might not have much time around (since we didn’t know for sure we … Read More

Over the course of the last few years our family has moved around -a lot. In the last year of support raising we gave away almost all of our things, packed up what was left to store, and went on the road to 40 different states in the U.S. It was amazing, and we had some experiences that are lifetime … Read More

It‘s Memorial Day weekend.  That really doesn’t mean much to most people here in Kenya.  But for us Americans living here, or at least for our family, I think the meaning behind this weekend takes on a whole new light.  I am thankful for being raised in a country that is full of freedoms.  I know it is easy to … Read More

Change is a constant in life, I think we all understand this. Sometimes it seems like change takes FOREVER and time drags on as we wait for something to actually happen.  Sometimes it sneaks up on us and we are not at all prepared for the quickness in which our lives take these turns.  The last two months have had … Read More

Today was a good day. I am thankful for the fact that I have been saying this a lot again recently.  After a couple months of chaos, sickness, evacuations, and change, I am learning to see the good, little, normal, every day things.  (Ok, I am learning, I said…I still fail at this often, but I am thankful He is … Read More
