We had a great time together–and those women certainly knew how to dance! The conference ended with the Sunday Worship service…and afterwards, since we were on the coast…there were several of us who headed to the […]

Not just another piece of paper…

Yesterday–I headed down town with two goals in mind…get Kyle’s passport stamped at Immigration w/a pupil’s pass…(which only took 5, count them, 5 minutes!…a record for sure!) and..pick up the official Certificate of Registration for our Tumaini Women Kenya NGO.  That took a little longer than five minutes…but really wasn’t too long.  I happily showed […]
