Kenya Trip #3 …

Last night we enjoyed a roaring fire in the fireplace. As pleasant as the temps are, it gets a little chilly at night and when you are at 7,000+ feet elevation it feels a little cooler than the thermometer declares. We played some more games, our family has always been a game playing family and this is so fun to do some catch-up in playing games with this part of our family.

I am already in the habit of having a cup of hot tea when I get up in the morning. For those who know me, you would be stunned to know that I have only had 1 cup of coffee in the past 6 days. On a normal morning at home I have 1 cup of coffee in the first 6 minutes after getting up. The tea tastes better in Kenya, I may have to bring some of this home with me.

Yesterday we took a trip to a retreat center, where they had some wonderful places to walk through tea fields, a place to purchase some souvenirs and a nice restaurant. We took a nice walk, bought a few souvenirs and enjoyed a unique lunch. I ordered, and ate, roasted goat. I liked it, though I doubt I will get too many options for it back home. As usual the drive was exciting. Between the traffic, the road conditions and the people watching every trip in a vehicle is a thrilling adventure.

We also played some Rook, a thrilling game of 31 and a few of us played Angry Birds and I once again got creamed at a game of Memory by my granddaughter. I am soaking in all of this family time.

I am so pleased watching my kids serve the way they do and to hear their heart for the Lord and to reach people who don’t know Jesus. They shared some new possibilities for ministry in the future. Let’s just say that my prayer life will get even more fervent if these possibilities happen.

This morning we went to a local church, but I will share more about that in my Monday Morning Musings. Until I can sit down and type again, hope you have a great day.
