Wake up fall
Well, at least it helped me wake up quickly. I was up early in Goibei, and opened the front door. A lizard dropped onto my bare arm. That was a wake-up fall.
It was typical of the last two weeks. I really identified with those who are suffering during this unrest. My rides on public transport (squeezed, hot, and unsafe), and my hour-long walk to get groceries served to make me grateful for all our blessings. My engagements in Goibei were fruitful, even though two of the 6 events were canceled because it was unsafe for the students to travel.
I made some crucial contacts, and we are all waiting for the unrest to settle down so we can get back into high gear. One important meeting was with the General Superintendent of our 3,000 churches in Kenya. After booking some of our buildings, he offered his driver as a means to getting to the airport. During our 35-km drive, I passed 18 places where there had been fires and barricades, recently removed by the police and army. It was, shall I say, interesting.
You may notice that time does not permit me to write in great detail (I also suspect that few of you have time to read a detailed report). So I attach a more complete update.
Thanks for your interest and prayer. God bless.
