Nadege and Benoit, along with Josef R., our Covenant missionary Africa regional coordinator, came to stay overnight at our kids’ home, before continuing on their travels. It was great fun to show Nadege and Benoit the Indian Ocean, their first experience with a body of water they couldn’t see across! They tasted the salt water and played in the waves with the kids.
They saw the farm where our family lives, with horses, dogs, and cats wandering around the yard. They tasted curried beans and apple crisp with cream, as well as waffles at the waffle house, and got to interact with our friends and family. They bought souvenirs for their families from the beachside sellers. If we were to judge by how much they were smiling, I’d say they had a wonderful visit. BUT, they had to suffer through sleeping on cold plastic chairs in the Nairobi airport not once, but twice; coming and going! They are back home at Gamboula, safe and sound after having traveled many miles through airports and countries that speak only English! Thanks for praying for these dear friends.
