An Overdue Update

I've been absent from the blog for far too long so I need to give you a quick update.

  • Erik's parents have been visiting us for a few weeks and we've loved having them here.  We went on a safari and have had a great time showing them around.  (pictures still to come)
  • There is a doctor's strike in Kenya which means that all government employed doctors have not reported to work for a week and a half.  Actually, they called off the strike last night, but then began striking again this afternoon.  Basically, what this means is that no doctors are staffing public hospitals and patients that go there typically see medical students or nobody at all.  Kijabe Hospital is getting many patients that would normally go to the government hospitals.  Please pray for our doctors as they care for an increased number of patients and as they share the hope of Christ with patients that wouldn't come here otherwise. 
  • On Friday, we will be hosting a Christmas luncheon at our home for the Bethany Kids staff and nurses.  We're expecting 40-50 people and I'm the caterer!  I have lots of cooking to do over the next few days, but I'm looking forward to being able to get to know all the people that Erik works with every day.
