Boots on the Ground

Friday morning,  Jan. 18

It’s Friday morning here in Nairobi.  Eight hours ahead of the US.

My American friends and family are abed, but close in my heart.

Today we move (again) to our home for the next three months:  Brackenhurst Retreat Center.  It’s located in the Kenyan “foothills” at 7800 feet.

This will be our home as we begin Swahili language training.

Stay in touch. It warms our hearts to hear from our friends.
