The view from our back balcony is amazing. I scan the cliff headed down to the water every time I enter the living room. Quite often, I am rewarded by seeing a troop of baboons. There are a couple of young ones and at least one that seems old.
For just being in Kenya two weeks, we have accomplished a lot. We have the work permits in our passports. We have a car. We have learned a few phrases in KiSwahili. We have learned how to use the appliances at our house. We have had departmental meetings. We have our official badges at Africa Nazarene University. So many things have happened.
Yet, we are waiting on our shipment to arrive. More precisely we are waiting for it to be sent. It is currently set to leave South Africa on the 24th of this month. We are told it will take 8 days to travel to Mombasa, Kenya. It will then be 4-5 business days before it arrives at ANU. This means that it will arrive right during the busy days of the beginning of a new trimester.
Please, pray that all will go well with the shipment and the timing will work. Pray that we will have the necessary energy to finish getting the house set up once our things arrive and the wisdom to know when to take a break.
