All in a day’s work?

This coming Saturday will see the start of our wheelchair distribution at CBR. We are busy making the final preparations for what we hope will be a remarkable ten days. Last week saw Liza and our fieldworker off road again in Nandi County looking for potential wheelchair recipients. We expect scorching sun during field trips. We expect slushy mud. We expect to meet with all manner of wonderful people. We encountered all of these things. However this week was a first for us in the field. Having picked up two village elders who had mobilised the local community, Liza was driving down the road when one of them yelled “Stop, we must go inside!” Liza duly stopped, gathered her things and went inside to assess the client. But there was no client. It transpired that this was the woman’s shop where she sells curios. Suddenly, it was all kerfuffle with everyone singing in Kinandi and Liza being decorated in traditional dress. A little bit unnerving but great fun too.     Yes, all in a day’s work.         Also, we are thrilled to announceNandi dress the safe arrival in NZ of our fourth grandchild, Elizabeth-Anna Jessica, Beth-Ann for short. She was born by emergency c section and we are thankful that all is well. Lucy, Dino and JayJay are enjoying her!
