August trip to Kenya and Uganda… Update 8

We have wrapped up our time at the Lord’s Servants Home and will travel all day tomorrow to the Stream of Hope Home in Uganda. This was a great visit. We saw the LSA #2 building get under way, implemented several improvements to the home, added to the playground, and spent a lot of time with the kids. Thanks for your prayers. Updates may be fewer from Uganda since the Internet is not as accessible for us there.

Just happy.....

It’s been a good day.  Took all the kids to the Kitale Museum nature park.  They are on school break and I’ve enjoyed being around them so much.  Tomorrow is our last day here already.

Weve had some challenges with power but over all it is incredibly pleasurable here.  LSH is a happy place.  Our meetings and projects have gone well, here are a few photos of things…
