Obedient to the urgings of our Kenyan friends after our recent intruder and robbery, we moved last week. We have found a dear little house, somewhat less well appointed than the previous one but in a much better location and with good security. It also has its own, albeit small, garden which is something we have been longing to have and there are some great new neighbours for us to get to know. It’s strange, isn’t it, when something upsetting leads to something lovely?
Work wise, we’ve been busy in the borderlands. We are encountering a few obstacles to getting the churches to work together for peace and there have been some renewed hostilities between the two communities. However we are determined to continue supporting the wonderful local peace activists as they work for this cause despite the frustrations and challenges.
The work at CBR continues apace and we are gearing up for this month’s doctors’ clinic. We are expecting a large number of new clients this time as the recent field work has led us to many children with disabilities who have never been assessed medically.
We also have a new journey to make, back to the UK, as we’ve just heard that David’s mother has died peacefully, aged 97 on the very same day that we received the wonderful news that James has proposed to our youngest daughter, Christina. (She said “Yes”!)
So, a lot of newness for us. How about all of you?
