Sibling Love

It’s hard to know what pictures and memories to post where.  Since I haven’t posted here in a while, I guess this moment is as good as any other to put up here! Sophia has been asking to hold baby Theo each day.  Today was the day.  At first she wanted to put her arms … [Read More]

Big Girl!

I thought it only fitting that we post a picture of Sophia in her big girl bed!  Thank you to Ryan & Rachel for the loan of the bed, Grandma & Grandpa for purple “girly” sheets, and cousin Rilyn for the comforter!  The amazing thing to me is that with the freedom of a big … [Read More]

Pregnancy Comparison

One of my friends recently asked if I felt bigger carrying Uhai than I was with Sophia.  This is the latest in many questions of how this pregnancy has been different than the last.  I didn’t really think I was bigger, so I thought I would take a photo and do a little comparison.  The … [Read More]

Christmas Crafts

Sophia and I made a gingerbread house the other day.  Well, I guess technically we decorated a gingerbread house (it was already pre-baked).  She enjoyed herself especially after she realized that the “glue” tasted so good!  Enjoy! [nggallery id=5]

CHE Irrigation Training

Last month, Healing Hand International came to the CCC training center at Ngatataek in the Kajiado district to hold a training on drip irrigation.  Kajiado is a very arid area of Maasailand near the Tanzania border.  From the training center on a clear day, you can see the top of Mount Kilimanjaro.  This is the … [Read More]

Cleaning Day

Well, it has been a while since my last post.  Hard to believe that we’ve been back in the US over a month now!  So, I’m trying to get us caught up on what we’ve been doing during the last weeks in Kenya and the first month in the US.  Even if it means posting … [Read More]

Jesus Loves the Little Children

So, I’ve been meaning to post these pictures for a while.  Now that Sophia has come into our life, we seem to have LOTS of pictures of kids!  Here are some for you from both the Nairobi CCC church and the Raila CCC church in the last month.  Enjoy! [nggallery id=3]

The Beauty of Law

If any of you have visited Kenya, this post will not be so much of an eye opener to you.  But for others, allow me to share my experience on the roads of Nairobi this past Tuesday (3 May). That afternoon, I needed to fill a prescription.  Unlike in the US, there are no standing … [Read More]

Job Satisfaction

Part of Joe’s role as team leader this term has been to dismiss employees that we as a team no longer need to employ.  This is usually due to the fact that they serve as guards at a house in the bush that we have sold or given over to the churches – thus we … [Read More]

Favor & Mercy

This is God’s story of favor & mercy that comes from Joe’s visit to the two new CCC churches planted near Mombasa.  May you be blessed by it. Pastor Moses used to live on the Kenya-Tanzania border near Mt. Kilimanjaro.  He shifted with his wife to a small area called Maungu further east in hopes … [Read More]
