Home Assignment 2018

We are gearing up for Home Assignment 2018.

If you notice that we will be on your district, contact your deputation coordinator to see if we can come to your church. We are also available for meetings with individuals or small groups for meals and fun get-togethers.

If you would like to schedule us for an open week, particularly if you are in the northeast, contact Amy at gregamyc@gmail.com with the suggested dates.

Here is our schedule so far:

  • April 16 – Fly to the US
  • April 21- 29 am – Indianapolis (IN) District tour
  • April 29 pm – Montana Avenue Church of the Nazarene (Cincinnati, OH)
  • May 4-18 – Maine District tour
  • May 19-30 – New England District tour
  • June 3-24 – open
  • June 25-July 1 am – Mid-Atlantic District Family Camp
  • July 2- July 8 – Upstate New York Family Camp
  • July 9-15 – vacation (Maryland)
  • July 16-31 – open
  • August 1 – fly back to Nairobi, Kenya

Note – one of the “open” weeks will be vacation, but we are waiting to see how the schedule fills.

Please pray that the schedule will fill in and that we will have a vehicle to use at little to no cost while we are in the US.

Please pray for the elections in Kenya on August 8 to be peaceful and transparent.

And now a few pictures from August at ANU…

 

Words and a Pic: Baboons and badges, but no boxes

DSCN0592The 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.
