A Busy Start to a New Year

If anyone still happens to check this blog, my apologies that it has been almost three months since I last posted. Terrible, I know. Since 2010 began, I feel like I have been going non-stop. For starters, I moved into a new apartment on the compound January 9. The following week, I was in Limuru at Brackenhurst to help with the homeschool conference for a few days. The next week, I was on a media coverage in the Nyanza Province in western Kenya to cover a medical missions team from Alexander City, Alabama. I was barely home a couple of days then it was back to Brackenhurst the last week of January to help with kids at another meeting.

So January was a full month. February was showing no signs of slowing down. After the meetings at Brackenhurst, I had a few nights at home before I headed to Tanzania for another media coverage, this time I was following a team from Beaumont, Texas, who was doing chronological Bible storying with the Maasai people. This trip was pretty cool because it was the first time I've really got to spend time in the bush with Maasai. It was a fun week and I really got a better understanding of life for the Maasai.

I thought I had about a week home before a trip to Zambia but it looks like I won't be traveling anywhere until June. I was looking forward to visiting friends there but I'm thankful I get to stay home for a while. Of course, things come up and I could be gone again before I know it. Actually, this weekend I'm going with some friends to the coast for a quick beach trip. Should be fun!

Well, that's been my life the last several weeks. I hope all is well wherever you are in the world and that you are enjoying the Lord's blessings and praising Him for loving us.

Wow! You sure do go a lot. How is your malaria? I hope you are cured of that! Take care of yourself. You are in our prayers. Most everyone here is doing well. Uncle Coke was in the hospital last week with a blood clot in his upper thigh/groin area. He is home now. Other than that, I think everyone here (that I know about) is doing well.
