Hello?

We are still here in Kijabe! It may appear our life is always interesting. But our life is more normal than you probably expect. Allison goes to teach at RVA. I go to the hospital and take care of patients. Our kids have successes and failures as do we, the parents. Sometimes I want to pray and read my Bible. Then I have stretches where it is hard and I watch Instagram Reels instead of praying. So the point is that life is normal no matter where you live, and it gets hard to think of things to put on the blog. And then sometimes things are hard and you do not want to do the blog. Or work and life is busier and it is hard to find time. However, I will give it another try, because I feel responsible to those of you who pray for us and support us to let you know what is going on. And really it is a joy to share how we get to serve God, as long as it does not become too narcissistic. Thank you for anyone who manages to check this again after months off the internet. Enjoy some pictures from the past several months. . .

From Thanksgiving. Our first without David in Kenya. He was missed!
We had David back for Christmas . . . and went to Lake Naivasha. One of our favorite places to rest about 1 hour from Kijabe.
Dr. Mark Gingerich worked with me in Peru at Hospital Diospi Suyana. It was great to have him with us for a month in Kijabe Hospital.
Sarah had a Jane Austen inspired birthday party. Fourteen years old!
My team on the men’s ward at Kijabe Hospital. Those are medical interns, clinical officer interns, and nutrition students. And my face does not really look like that (I hope)!
Baboons like cactus fruit! They also like to come in our houses and take our food. Lock your doors!
Sarah in the junior high play. RVA has a new outdoor amphitheater that is really well done!
