Building Friendships

Teaching my new Friends how Bake Cakes

Thank you everyone for your prayer and concern. I am doing much better now and am finally home in Kitale. I have typhoid, but no malaria. Unfortunately the medication I am being treated with may be effecting my logic just a bit. I just found my toothpaste and deodorant in my kitchen cupboards after unpacking everything yesterday. lol. So, we will see how I am doing ten days from now when I am finally finished with this antibiotic.

In the mean time, I have my new work schedule and am excited to see all the different places I will start teaching next week. I will have some pictures for you all pretty soon.

One of the many things I have enjoyed doing over the past month while waiting on this new schedule is building relationships young women who live here in town, and using these friendships as an opportunity to minister towards them. Pictured to the left is Juliana. She and one other young lady are interested in going through the foundation course I am teaching. The only thing I love more than teaching is meeting with people one on one. It really builds your faith, your friendship, and helps you answer difficult questions about your faith.

    I is great to see you back on your blog again. We have prayed for a good report and that you will be completely well soon. It would be exciting to be in one of your classes. As always, special blessings for you and your friends. Love, Lilly

    We are all glad to hear that you are back and improving. If you think your mind is muddled now, just wait till you hit your 70s.

    I hope this latest “adventure” ends your health issues for a while. Maybe your system is building the antibodies it needs to fend off the the rather dangerous bugs that live there in Kenya.

    Take care and we will pray for your total recovery. God bless you.

      If you want to hear the worst part, the water filter I was drinking from for the past year only filtered dirt. I thought it protected against microbiology! Hence,I have basically survived off of African tap water for a year. Oh, I nearly had a heart attach when I found that out! Good news is I have a new water filter now and it is supposedly the best you can find.
