Branch Manager Re-Leaf

It was the only vehicle in sight. A motorcycle. As we headed into a looted, burnt-out Kisumu, the cyclist flagged us down. His message was simple: garnish our vehicle with a few branches, or face stoning at impromptu, civilian roadblocks. So we proceeded, branch managers bringing re-leaf.

And Kisumu needed it. Large grocery stores emptied and smoldering. Our former cyber-café looted. A tense, angry atmosphere.

We had prayed that we could get cash, fuel, and a few basic groceries. We succeeded, and were relieved to drive back home past the burnt-out vehicles and barely-removed barriers.

Now we wait. Sherry’s school resumes next week, and it still unsafe to travel.

Nobody said it would be easy. Thank you for praying for us. God bless.

Ken & Marge MacGowan
