Full Day

11 Dec

Here are a few highlights from our day.  We were fully immersed in the East African culture today.

dscn2263We went to an Islamic seminary and got a tour.  This is one of the nicest classrooms in EA (we got to see another school today as well).  I hope to bring these pictures back and show my students how great they have it.  We also got a chance to sit with one of the teachers at the seminary and ask him many questions about the school.  They do many great things for the community but are blinding people with their teachings.  It is amazing how the enemy can make darkness look so good.

We were invited to the home of a friend Erik has made while visiting a local park.  They served us an authentic Swahili meal.  No forks/spoons with this stuff.  Messy hands are perfectly acceptable.

To have us in their home was an honor.  They asked us many questions about American schools and Barack Obama.  Everyone here is very excited that he is our president.

There are some problems with uploading more pictures so I cannot show more.  But.. we also had a girly few hours and all got henna.  I have always wanted to do it and love it!  I will show later.

We are now leaving Erik and Nancy’s home to travel back to the big city (another 5 hour drive).  We are spending a few days there before we get on a plane to come home.  But first… SAFARI!!!  There is another “life list” check off about to happen!! So excited.

Please pray for safety as we travel.  Thank you for your continued prayers.
