Taking kids on Safari

Taking kids on a day trip to Tsavo National Park was a highlight. They were sooooo excited to go. Everyone wanted to see Lions, but of course Elephants, Zebras and Giraffes was on every kids list to spot. We all had great fun and lasting memories were made.




The kids were really into spotting animals.
Beautiful Zebras










Elephants make you hold your breath

Can you spot the big cats?



An amazing day for all of us

Adventure in Dema

Dear Friends

This year the rainy season is very heavy. Dams are breaking and rivers are overflowing. Today my friend Betty and I visited the country side to meet with women from a village area. The roads were at times impassable by car and we needed to take a motor bike to take us to the remote area.  The hillside slopes are adventures to climb. I confess, I prayed as the bike was creeping up the hill.  Our driver was very courageous and brought us safe to the village.


Besides blessing women with some extra food I was able to share the Gospel with them. Around 100 women came to spend the morning with us. We sang, danced, prayed and listen to God's word together. It was a mixed group of women from different religious backgrounds. One of the goals is to find ways to assist women to start self sustaining businesses. Never a dull moment here in Kenya.

Nairobi

Nairobi, the capital city of Kenya is like almost all third world cities, busy, congested, and full of contrasts. Stately mansions give way to the slums of Kibera and Mathare. Huge western shopping malls hint on the upcoming middle class, but quickly swallowed up by the dirty, neglected pot hole covered back streets. My visit to Nairobi was filled with adventures Uber rides and beautiful fellowship with friends. But without doubt my visit to a friends tea plantation was one of the highlight of my stay in Kikuyu Land. Here are some of the pictures I took while out in the suburbs of Nairobi.
