It is Sunday morning in Nairobi and Stan and I are headed to worship with Trinity Baptist Church in Nairobi and then travel down to Kilgoris to see our Maasai brothers. Rob, Dan and Roger left Friday night for the U.S. and Stan and I are on our own. But before we left Lodwar Friday, Dan, Roger, Rob and I took some time to look around Lodwar Town and do some shopping.
Dan and I both found some hats and we'd like you all to judge who got the better deal.
Dan opted for the more traditional look while I found something a little more exotic.
This is the traditional hat worn by Turkana men and the feather is from an ostrich.
The boys enjoyed their last cold drink of Tangawezi (a powerful ginger soda pop) in our favorite cafe, the Kilimanjaro. Which has the best kuku and chips around.
Saturday, Stan, Frank and I visited our friends, the Petersons, out at Rafiki Foundation where they work.
"Rafiki" means "friend" in Swahili. This captures the vision and purpose of the Foundation—to befriend orphans and widows in their distress (James 1:27). To accomplish this mission, Rafiki established Training Villages within ten African countries, one of which is in Nairobi. These Villages provide orphan care, Bible study, classical Christian education, and teacher training through Rafiki’s five programs: ChildCare, Education, Rafiki Bible Study, Advanced Learning, and Widows.
Thanks again for your prayers for us. Stan and I will return to Nairobi Wednesday for his flight home and I'll be leaving Kenya for the U.S. on Friday.
