A Good Truth in the Morning

All of us must die eventually. Our lives are like water spilled out on the ground, which cannot be gathered up again. But God does not just sweep life away; instead, he devises ways to bring us back when we have been separated from him. 2 Samuel 14:14

Retreat and Camping

Allison went on a women’s retreat for the women of Africa Inland Mission. They graciously invited all the women who worked at Rift Valley Academy and Kijabe Mission Hospital. So while she was away for the evening, I decided to take the kids camping. Nearby is Lake Naivasha, and while there you can hike, camp, swim, and sail. Often giraffes and water bucks will come through camp, and you will surely see a hippopotamus. And so we took advantage, drove the hour to get there, set up camp and spent a day relaxing by the lake.

African Fish-Eagle

We saw this magnificent bird at Lake Naivasha yesterday. It looks a lot like a Bald Eagle! The photo is from ebird.org. All is usually carry is my cell phone, and it can’t get pictures like this.

Hard Work and Attention to Detail

By carefully observing my friend Tony and his sartorial habits I was able to pull this off.

I had noticed we had the same shirt, and I caught on to the fact that this shirt seemed to make it to the top of his choices on Mondays or Tuesdays. And so with great strategy this last Monday, I finally managed to come into work dressed as Tony. These are great times on the Internal Medicine service at Kijabe Hospital. (I think I need a life!)

 

Colobus Monkeys

This picture was taken by a friend here in Kijabe. (Ansley Kynes for those who wish to know). She timed it just right! The Abyssinian black-and-white colubus is my favorite local monkey. They don’t break into the house like the small monkeys, and they are not mean like the baboons. But what I love most about them is how they leap from tree to tree and how they welcome the dawn with their low pitched cry.
