The Lord God Made Us All
It's spent an inspiring few days in Nairobi. I've met with amazing Jane Muriuki of the Tabitha Project (please do find her story online), kissed giraffes (yes, there's a picture), admired women at work at Kazuri Beads, viewed cheetahs and zebras and warthogs (but no lions or tigers or bears) in the Nairobi Game Park, practiced my pitiful Kiswhahili and shared a meal with Rose and Ndungu Ikenye, our remarkable TEC volunteers in Thika... It's also been a frustrating few days, way too many hours during which I've done battle with my laptop and lost. In the process, however, I've met countless kind and helpful folks, from driver Jonhes Mulusya to the staffs at the ACK Guest House and the Safaricom Customer Care Center. Thank you all for your own wonderful messages and prayers. I'll be on the early-morning flight to Maseno tomorrow, hoping to be of some use at the hospital by Monday -- which is actually Jomo Kenyatta Day, a very special holiday here in Kenya. Lala salama (Sleep safe), everyone.
