Milestones and Millstones

Some noteworthy milestones:

* one year ago I suffered an attack of kidney stones, and was told I was out of my mind to leave the country (and to avoid bad roads if I went to Africa!!!). I arrived in January with two large stones in dangerous locations….and tests in July indicate there are no threatening stones… God is good.

* for the past 5 years, enrolment has gone down for our Certificate program to train teachers. We are now embarking on an upgraded, Diploma course, and we look forward to an overwhelming response.

* Sherry has just completed her third term in Africa, and is dong very well.

* while driving through the Masai Mara Game Park, we saw lions on both days. One was called Eena, so we just said……..are you ready…….”Hi, Eena!”

* the internet has been so slow, that a friend got through to Canada before us, using an abacus.

* the temperature plunged to a frigid 70 degrees the other morning.

* Tom Nimz, a dear friend, has just completed our new web-site, KenyaGuestHouse.com.

* we are just completing our 2nd retreat, and are delighted with the surplus, that will provide a welcome bonus to the 10 families who depend on us…..and you.

Some underwhelming millstones:
* a currency fluctuation lowered the Canadian dollar by 8%.
* a gang of 40 cattle rustlers has been coming through our area at night, robbing our colleague’s cow, among others.

Thanks for thinking of us. God be with you.
