If you have never lived in a place that has experienced a true dry season – where you literally go months without a  drop of rain,  I am not sure you can truly appreciate how exciting and magnificent it is when rain appears suddenly.  In Mundri it was so, so, so hot.  We would sit outside in the shade because … Read More

A few weeks ago we helped some friends from church move to a new house.  We had been praying for them for a couple of months to find the right place.  House hunting in Nairobi is HARD!!

“Ask and I’ll give the nations to you. Oh Lord, that’s the cry of my heart…”                            (You Said, Hillsong) This week has been one of those blah weeks where I can’t seem to find the energy to be thankful for anything, but there is more than enough energy … Read More

I’m at that spot again that all international workers come to several times in their lives.  Two weeks from today we leave Kenya for the summer to do some traveling in the States and see people.  While I look forward to seeing family and friends, I am not looking forward to the exhausting schedule we have in front of us. … Read More

(Photo cred: Scott Will) “Bullet is just eating everything, leaves, trees, ground, person. Eating them. Just making person to bleed everywhere. We are just like wild animals now, with no place to be going. Sun, why are you shining at this world? I am wanting to catch you in my hands, to squeeze you until you can not shine no … Read More
