Today we stopped at The Hub to pick up some groceries for Sister Msane. Where else but in Kenya would the security guards--who were searching my bag and scanning our bodies--ask for a pamphlet and information about the Church when they saw our name tags? So nice to be able to talk to people here about the Church and find interest.
Some have asked about the drought conditions here. It is very dry. The leaves on many trees are starting to yellow and shrivel. We hear that it's very serious in many parts of Kenya. There's water rationing in some housing compounds here in Nairobi. So far our compound is okay -- probably because an important government official lives here!! We have a bit of water storage in our flat and at the Mission Home and Office. To see the drought conditions on Lake Victoria, see one of my previous posts about going to Kisumu. We were shocked at how low the lake was and how hard it is on the fishermen who get their living from the lake.
When I'm not quite so tired, I'll pour through my photos and do a post on the new missionary arrivals and the recent MLC (Missionary Leader Council) so you moms and dads can see how great your sons are doing! We are so privileged to work with these young missionaries.
|Here we are on our anniversary morning, ready to head to the mission office. We're getting good at doing selfies, something we don't usually do.|
