The Bishop hosting our team is the one in the maroon shirt running away from the charging (though defeated) black bull at the end of the clip. He was scared out of his mind.
Sorry to have not gotten up the video earlier, but it was due to network problems at the local internet cafe. We have since had a significant change in our trip itiniary, and have added a third primary location to this mission. We are now finishing up a refreshing week at the Lewa Children's Home/Baraka Dairy Farm outside of Eldoret. It has been so good just to spread the love of the Father to these abandoned children and orphans (currently about 60 of them, including some infants). Each night we have been able to use their prayer times (very Catholic) to share dramas that exemplify the character and nature of God, and even invited them to accept Jesus into their hearts last night. Three of the older boys (around 11) stayed after for prayer, and did just that. Glory to the God of our salvation! Tomorrow, we head further north to Kitale briefly before continuing on to Lodwar and Lokichoggio in Turkanaland. Look forward to sharing more after we arrive in this semi-arid land, known for its dust and hot wind. Mungu awabariki! (God bless you all!)
The other two pictures are of our more recent time up in Lokichoggio, Northwest corner of Kenya. Thandi is playing with our hosts' children, and then a boy killing time in Kakuma Refugee Camp.
