We've been able to furnished our home with all the basics and are anxiously awaiting visitors. As our friend Daniel says: "Kenya Rocks!" so make plans to visit us soon!
Our internet up and running!! As long as the power stays on. The power generally goes off each day for some period of time. Many times its after the sun has set and before we go to bed so we are so grateful for the candles that we brought.
We met with a Kenyan architect who has helped us move the blueprints for The Shelter complex quickly through the approvals process. We have received 3 of 4 approvals and are well on our way to receiving the 4th approval within the next month. The Good News is we can continue working towards a bid process to find the contractor who will be awarded the opportunity to build the Multi-purpose building and the first home while we wait for our final approval!!!
We've been asked "What are you eating?". Well, we've had everything from Rice and Beans, homemade pizza, Chapati (a flour like tortilla), spaghetti and now amazing Indian food prepared by our land lady who has stopped by for a few weeks. We are also enjoying fresh avocado's that are in season and grow as big as a 16" softball. Our friend, Flora, regularly brings them to us freshly picked off the tree by her children.
- We have attended a church in our town. Its so moving to see a child worshiping and praising God so passionately in front of the church with arms high and eyes closed.
