Then, in keeping with the ideas I presented in my previous post, "You ask . . . How Can I help?" LeRon and I teach a music conducting class. The point of the class is to teach the people so they can take over the jobs LeRon and I are doing. When the conducting class is over, we will teach a piano class. Again, the point is to help the people help themselves.
Then we get into our Toyota truck and head the 20 or so minutes to the Rongai Ward where we teach another music conducting course. We also help them with their Ward Choir but again with the idea that they will be able to help themselves. There's a lot of very musically talented people there.
We get home about 4 p.m. So it's a long day. The drive is interesting. We always see baboons and warthogs scampering around right next to the road and right next to the many pedestrians moseying about. I even saw two warthogs scrounging in a pile of burning refuse. They didn't seem to mind the flames and I wish I could have taken a picture.
Following are a few pictures for the week:
|We share the roads with handcarts and other slow moving vehicles. One time a woman was walking (no not walking -- she was sauntering) down the middle of the road. No one honked. People just slowed down and patiently drove around her!|
|These Kenyans are strong people. Usually a handcart like this is loaded to the gills and is not on the side of the road!|
|I love their long tails. The barbed wire on the top of the wall doesn't faze the monkeys.|
|Cute, eh? No wonder Charles Darwin thought we descended from monkeys. Monkeys are truly very human like. But I'm glad we know we are sons and daughters of God!|
|Here I am after our long Sabbath day, still smiling but wishing I could take a nap but it's already 5 p.m. so no time for a nap.|
|Here's the bracelet that F* and M* made for me. It was a little big so they are going to make me another one for free.|
