We arrived safely in Kenya this past Monday morning. Sorry for not posting an entry sooner . . . we’ve not had easily accessible internet access until today.
The night flight went well but none of us really got enough sleep. We were dragging by late afternoon. Tents had been set up at the airport to replace the burned building and the entry process into Kenya went smoothly.
We did have a little trouble managing our bags through the improvised customs scanning area (a mobile scanner in the back of a van) but managed with a little help. A nice customer service rep named Celestine helped us through customs and even called the person who was there to pick us up. With the improvised entry process and location the pickup point was not that clear. With all of our bags (minus one which is still lost) piled in and on top of a land cruiser we were on our way.
We’ll write a bit more later as we work through orientation and find out more about our transition to Kijabe – which should take place next week.
For now, thanks for your prayers and support.
Tim, Maureen, Luke & Kate
I am so very, very thankful you are there and everyone is ok. I think about you and pray for
you often. Lots of love to all of you. Mary Murray
Praise God! We are so glad you made it safely, we prayed for you during this difficult travel experience and will continue praying as you make the transition into your new home and jobs. It should be smooth sailing from here on out!
Kijabe is an interesting place. I am confident you will enjoy your time there. By the way, if you don’t know already, it is worth purchasing a USB modem for your computer so that you can have Internet access wherever you are. It was always sketchy in Kijabe.
So glad to hear that you are all well and that God’s hand directed your detour in London and journey. Will continue to pray for your transition and health.
Glad to hear you are safe. It might take a while for you to adjust, but I pray that you’ll be able to adjust smoothly and that you’ll be in perfect health. God will take care of you and I’ll always remember you in my prayers.
Thank you for your update. We are always glad to receive your blogs
