Jonathan and I looked at each other a few hours ago and knew we had to do it. The long (for us) treck to Brackenhurst. It wouldn't be so bad if there weren't so many hills. But we wanted to post an update for you guys.
This weekend was a crazy whirlwind of events. Saturday, our friends Robbie and Elizabeth (the Sr. Pastor and his wife) of Living Water Christian Fellowship, came to pick us up for another shopping trip in Nairobi. We needed to pick up some groceries as well as some essentials for cooking and such. After a long shopping trip at Nakumat (the grocery store) and THREE blackouts while shopping, we were ready for a break. We hopped back into the car and made the trip back to Limuru (which is about 30 minutes), dropped off our groceries and our friends took us back to the church. Around 8:30 PM we were dropped off at the church to spend the night and so we wouldn't have to make the hour drive on a busy Sunday morning. Praise the Lord, we got rain on Saturday night (Kenya's been in a severe drought) but it also caused a piece of the ceiling in the church to cave in and collapse. The thud was so loud it scared us half to death and it made a long night for Jonathan who was wide-eyed after that.
The church service was great. The boys were a little rowdy and they have been fighting off a little cold since the plane ride and they have been going #2 after every meal. So we had lost a few outfits to the accidents. We were able to visit with friends we haven't seen in a few years and go out to Ethiopian food. After that, the boys passed out in the car and we made the hour drive back to Tigoni. Upon arrival, Jonathan noticed something was missing. OUR KEYS!!!! Our keys were back in Nairobi and the boys were so fussy. We thought, "Oh no!!!!" Thankfully our instructor, Peter, lives just don the road and had a spare set of keys. Once we got inside, we got settled and went our back to HAND WASH our clothes. After dinner (which was quite eventful!) we heard rain. About an hour later I erupted into laughter and thought, "Our clothes are STILL on the line!" haha. If we didn't laugh we would probably cry!
In other news, this Friday our interview on KWAVE (107.9) at 4:30 will be on the air. So tune in!
We thank the Lord that he has brought us to this place and we love the people and know the Lord has been faithfully providing.
