Heather's Visit Day Three: Leaving the Lodge and Visiting the Naivasha Missionaries

Saturday morning we had to check out of our lovely, rustic lodge.  We stopped at the Naivasha missionary's place to visit Elder Noel and Elder Odhiambo.

I wonder if little critters live in the thatch on the roof of our lodge.

Some kind of fruit.  Not sure what but I like this picture.

We stopped at Lake Naivasha and watched a young boy cleaning his catch of fish.  We asked if we could take a photo and he nodded shyly.  So cute!

So fun to have Heather visit for a few days.

Lots of obsidian in this area.  Lots of volcanic activity in centuries past.

I love these homemade brooms.

So fun to see Elder Noel and Elder Odhiambo in their very colorful apartment (or rather, flat, as they are called here).  In November we had visited Elder Odhiambo in Dar Es Salaam in Tanzania.  Now he is companions with Elder Noel here in Naivasha.

These are excellent missionaries who work hard and have good attitudes.
Elder Noel has been here for 3 or 4 transfers now.  Transfers are every 6 weeks.  So he's due for a change next transfer.

An African Hoopoe catching a worm outside Elder Noel and Elder Odhiambo's flat.  I had to zoom in a long way to catch it.

Heather is visiting with two farmers.  You can see their crops in the background.  They grow potatoes, peas, and maize.

LeRon had a good visit with them too.  He always likes to visit with farmers.

I am wearing the "kikoy" that I bought at a farmer's market.  It's made of really smooth, silky, cotton.  You can use it as a shawl or a scarf or a table runner.  It's very "Kenyan."

Our washing machine was starting to give problems so we got a new one.  It's a front load but somehow it's not balanced right so LeRon has to sit on it to keep it in one place!!!  We're going to have to fix it soon.
