Orientation in Kenya

Greetings from Africa Based Orientation in Machakos, Kenya.

The classes are intense, but the food and banter with all the other new missionaries are good.  We come from countries all around the world, including Brazil, Germany, Canada, Australia and the USA.

We are also going to many countries around Africa.

Me in Rokocho school, Kerio valley

I had a safe trip ‘up-country’ in the Kerio valley in Kenya for 10 days.  It was an extremely busy time, as I was expected to speak motivational lessons in many of the local schools.  I also had the opportunity to visit many friends, which was a great encouragement.

Unfortunately towards the end of the 10 days, I wasn’t so well, though managed to make the trip back to Nairobi as planned.  I had great support from some Scottish friends and managed to get onto the right medication to get treated and am now feeling a lot better.

We are in Machakos for 3 weeks.  Please pray for my health, my energy levels and my understanding of all of the training that we are being given – some of the topics are very challenging.

    Glad to hear from you Catherine…hope your system is back to normal…health is so important when you are working in a completely different environment. Looking at a Zambian website just now as I am going to Zambia, Botswana ,Namibia and South Africa with Exodus later in the year and that will be enough of a challenge for me! Take care and God Bless
