I mentioned to one Kenyan that when there was a drought in Alberta, the members often fasted and prayed for rain and the rains always came. The person was so surprised. I don't think he had ever thought of fasting and praying for rain. And he had never related rain with food. So here in Nairobi, as in cities in the west, people don't realize where their food comes from.
I had a sore throat and fever last week and I was in bed for a couple of days. So I didn't take pictures at the April MLC (Mission Leader Council) at the Mission Home. LeRon went and took a few pictures so I'll put them in for you moms and dads. Hungry missionaries enjoyed eating Sister Msane's home cooking.
|Saw these beautiful flowers in the Galleria parking lot. We've seen flowers like this in Thailand I think. Lovely!|
|The night of the MLC, two missionaries arrived from South Africa, Elder Mayekiso and Elder Somniso. Now there are 6 South Africans in our mission (counting President and Sister Msane) and there are more to come.|
|Elder Musonda, Elder Wambua, Elder Mwashi having fun after the MLC.|
|Elder Mahanzu and Elder Njoga who was here to be released from his mission (I think to Ghana). He's heading home. Nice tie. Elder Mahanzu serves in Mwanza, Tanzania.|
|Elder Rasmussen and Elder Le Cheminant keep things lively! We love them both. We love all the missionaries.|
