Kenya Calling

Hey everyone!! I found a computer and can squeeze out a few minutes. We arrived safe and sound and have already been to four schools and two orphanages.

We flew to Western Kenya today (Kissumu) and it was very amazing and humbling. The children are so beautiful and the had prepared wonderful songs and skits for us. Their voices were like a little bit of heaven...it made my soul tingle to hear them. I would have taken several of them home if I could. They all got a big kick out of seeing their photos on the digital camera!!

Tomorrow we go to Eastern Kenya for two days and then off to Uganda after that. The end of the week will be conferences with the teachers.

No one has malaria yet (smile) and be assured I will be hitting all of you up for donations when I return (smile......). Small things make huge changes here.

Love you all and hope you are all well.

Best wishes for a successful and safe trip. I can't wait to see your photos.

(I'm glad donations will still be accepted. I sort of got distracted by the earthquake in Indonesia, but I'm saving up again.)

I didn't read that till I got home and I almost peed my pants laughing..

Now, just add "geeve me 50 bob" in there somewhere and WELCOME to Kenya.

I was thinking about your family while we were in Western Kenya...I have some great photos for you....
