Piglets

Yesterday a visitor from Wisconsin was enjoying the company of a young neighbor. As they played, she was taught the Kenyan version of a familiar nursery rhyme:

This little piggy went to market,
This little piggy stayed home,
This little piggy had water,
This little piggy had none.
And THIS little piggy cried
"Wee-wee-wee" all the way home to America.

Today more visitors will arrive. A group of Engineers without Borders is coming to assess, and hopefully help us address, our local water and power problems.

Please pray for them and for children everywhere that one day soon "pigs will fly..." (all the way home to Africa), water will flow and reliable energy will be harnessed.
