Thank you, everyone, for your prayers -- and thank you, Nell, for sending the wet weather in western Massachusetts to the parched people in western Kenya!

Mud-Luscious and Puddle-Wonderful
Bwana asifiwe, and asante sana, ee cummings! "The rains (finally) came" to Maseno Missions, two evenings in a row, and we listened all last night to laughter on the roof.
Relief is palpable as people begin to plant. This photo of our neighbor's shamba may not look like much to you, but it literally means life to us.
"... I will send down the showers in their season; they shall be showers of blessing. The trees of the field shall yield their fruit, and the earth shall yield its increase. They shall be secure on their soil..." (Ezekiel 34: 26, 27 - NRSV)
