Tuesday May 2, 2023
It is Tuesday morning and we are back in Nairobi, having traveled from Narok yesterday. We left Oloolaimutia Sunday evening because the weather indicated heavy rain that night which might have prevented travel. The river we had to cross from where we were staying during the conference has no bridge and is unfordable when the heavy rains come. so we opted to overnight about halfway to Nairobi. Above is the entrance to Mara Shiners School where we held the conference.
Happily we are able to report that all the ladies are doing well after being down with some kind of illness since Thursday evening! It was a challenge for the team as they were all such an integral part of the conference, but by God's grace we were able to fill the holes they left and we are just glad they are all feeling well.
We finished our conference Saturday afternoon so here are a few shots from the week.
Linda was feeling well enough by Saturday to speak at the women's breakout session.

Amoss Mallangah, one of our API Masters students, came all the way from the coast of Kenya to be with us at the conference.
Women's breakout session.
The conference sessions were held in the middle structure which is the school dining hall and kitchen. The buildings on the right and left are the boys and girls dorms. Mara Shiners is a boarding school, as are most schools in Kenya. The small blue structure in the forefront is the solar generating station which powers the whole school.
Here we are in our Maasai finery!

Crossway Publishing provided some valuable resources for the pastors which we handed out at the conference.
