Tuesday – September 14, 2010Today was a bit chaotic. I had a meeting scheduled with the leaders of the Nairobi churches at 10:00am this morning. But that didn’t happen. We have been working on attaining a copy of our church registration with the government here in Kenya. It is needed for each of our districts so that they are recognized by the Read More

Monday – September 13, 2010The only thing we had scheduled for today was the trip from Kisii to Nairobi which would take about 5 hours. We had a sign on our door at the Jazz that stated that check out time was \"9:30am strictly.\" When I asked the manager about that last night he said, \"No – it is 9:30am FLEXIBLE!\" if we liked. So we Read More

Sunday – September 12, 2010We were invited to attend church in the small congregation of Misesi, which is only 45 minutes from Kisii. Church was scheduled to start at 10:00 so we left at 8:30 to make sure that we were there plenty early. Mike, Stephen, Russ and I loaded up in Charles’ car (a different Charles from the one(s) in Nairobi) and Read More

Saturday – September 11, 2010Today got off to a rough start. Mike and I were going to go to Chotororo to teach the Kisii church leaders in a seminar while Russ and Stephen stayed in town to run errands. But Mike had a problem – he couldn’t see. His contacts failed to clean themselves because the solution leaked out of its container during the Read More

Friday – September 10, 2010On the road again... Daniel met us at the hotel this morning and walked us back across the border into Kenya. We loaded up into a shuttle that was going to Kisumu, but had to wait 2 hours until it finally left! The bus won’t leave until they have filled every seat, and you never know how long it is going to take. So Read More

Thursday – September 9, 2010There are some really nice things about Uganda. First, things are much less expensive then in Kenya and Tanzania. Mike and I are staying in small but nice single rooms for about $16 a night. There was cheaper place, but it was booked up and not available when we arrived. The Maryland Hotel is very nice and clean with Read More

Wednesday – September 8, 2010It was another day of traveling for all of us. We all loaded into the van this morning at 8:00am and said goodbye to Mary before we left Mike’s house in Matunda. We drove south to Eldoret on some of the worst tarmac roads in all of Kenya. It took us 2 hours to drive only 40 kilometers! We have heard that they will Read More

Tuesday – September 7, 2010There was a place for all of us to sleep in the three bedrooms of Mike’s house. The rooms are not big – just big enough for a full-size bed, and an extra four feet between the bed and the wall for the occupant’s belongings – but they were adequate for our purposes. We enjoyed some chapati for breakfast along Read More

Monday – September 6, 2010It was now off to Moi’s Bridge. We slept well in our rooms at the Jazz, in spite of the loud music that was blaring three floors below us past midnight. Even though it is called the Jazz, I heard a lot of Country music and no Jazz that I can remember. Even with the noise, it is much better than the Zonic. My humble Read More
