Safe (Almost-) Home

After a lovely Logan send-off (TY, Lori, Dianne, Helen and Barbara!), I enjoyed perfect connections and flights (TY, British Airways), great accommodations in Nairobi (TY, ACK Guest House), and no swollen legs this time (TY, Beth)... God is good; yes, all the time!

It was a gift to meet John and Ann from "Other Sheep" this morning, and I look forward to seeing the Ikenyes, TEC missioners in Thika, and Jane Muriuki, from the Tabitha Orphans Project, later today. I also look forward to meeting baby elephants, giraffes and a few more of the "big five" tomorrow (TY, Ann!). I'll fly to Kisumu early Sunday, then go to Maseno, at last!

Last Sunday in church in the US, we read the 23rd psalm together. Today under my mosquito net in Nairobi, I re-member "Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me." And I know that "Your prayers and your love, they sustain me." Asante sana/thank you all!
