So we come to the end of our first year here in Eldoret and what a year it has been – Many challenges but so many more joys that far outweigh them. Thank you to you all for being willing to travel with us. Your comments, thoughts, prayers and financial support have been greatly appreciated. Our little Christmas tree and Nativity scene that we squashed into our bags last year are sitting on the coffee table and we’re ready to celebrate this wonderful season.
Our most special news came just in time for Christmas. Many of you will know that four years ago our youngest daughter, Christina, coughed and spluttered her way through the Christmas festivities, only to be diagnosed with cancer shortly into the New Year. We have just heard that at a routine hospital check-up the oncology team pronounced her to be “in complete clinical remission”. We are so thankful for this news – As her eldest sister Lucy says: “Best. Christmas. Present. Ever!”
We will once again be spending Christmas day with the family of our good friend, Revd Maritim Rirei and we’ll think of you wherever you may be.
Happy Christmas and a Peaceful New Year to you all
