Karibuni! “Welcome back!”
We arrived back in Kenya at the end of April and began to get settled the beginning of May. We’ve overcome some unexpected challenges in re-acquiring our vehicle (which we’ve now paid for twice) and applying for new work permits. We’ve dived into to language learning (as we’re needing to add Swahili to our Maa and Samburu). We’ve been delighted to host guests — some of the Hausers, our good friends who serve as missionaries in Burkina Faso and Côte d’Ivoire, and the Sapps, representing our support partner Crossroads Christian Church. We’ve also hosted a number of our Maasai friends and co-workers, working together on curriculum development and planning meetings for CCBTI and DTI.
More than anything else, we’ve been struck by the warmth, or even intensity, of the homecoming welcome that has been extended to us these first two months of our fourth term. To read more (and for pictures), read our June newsletter. (Note that the pdf is optimized for viewing online; if you would like a higher resolution copy for printing, just ask!)
We also posted a small photo album from last month. If you missed it, check out our May 2019 photos.
