From Kenya #2 …

Yesterday involved a spectacular walk around a good portion of the campus. There were many stunning views. There was a lot of up and down, steps and stepping around rocks. It was a great way for us to get a better picture of the whole campus. We have seen where our grandkids classes are and where our son and daughter in law teach their classes as well.

We have had a few of God’s creatures join us in our bedroom, but nothing harmful or scary, yet. We wear sweats and sweatshirts in the morning and at night, the day is for short sleeves and sometimes shorts. The weather is wonderful.

We have met a few of the other missionary families serving here at this location as well. What a privilege to meet these people who are serving shoulder to shoulder with our kids. We have a much better picture of where they live and serve, some of the challenges they face, some of the people they work with and we have just scratched the surface. What a blessing this trip is for us.

Yesterday had another indoor soccer match, I didn’t play much in this one. There were a couple of other families involved and they were really playing soccer, so I watched, cheered and took some pictures. Today we took a drive to a national park and were able to see quite a few animals. We experienced some real country Kenyan roads and combined with the drive from the airport I am not going to complain about any potholes or traffic problems when I get home. At least not for a few days.

We stopped and ate at a little restaurant in a gas station. We had our choice of Chicken Inn or Pizza Inn. We chose Pizza Inn. The food was great and we sat outside where the views were spectacular. Since we arrived back I have played Gang of Four, Rook, Battleship, Angry Birds and Slamwich. All of that and we still have the evening to go.

We have been getting to know our grandkids better and learning about life in Kenya from our kids. I am so humbled and thankful to be able to be here. Hopefully, I will be able to post some more soon.
