We began our fun day with the students at New Life Academy in Bomani, Kenya with a school picture. What a precious group! 411 students from 3 years old to grade 8 and 32 staff members.
We had the same activities as yesterday. It was fun to share them with our kids in Bomani.
While the students were eating lunch, we packed and then distributed the sponsor gift bags.
The wonderful kitchen staff made us another delicious meal!
After lunch the team went into the village to visit some of the homes of the 7th grade helpers. What a joy!
After we returned, the staff at New Life gave each of us a traditional Kenyan item of clothing to express their gratitude for our visit and support.
We closed the day with a school parent meeting during which we gave a mosquito net to every school family. It was such a joy to shake the hand of each school parent and see first hand the difference this school is making in this community!
Reid and Pastor Rob greeted the parents who expressed their appreciation for our partnership and this gift.
Thank you to all who donated for the nets. What a life changing blessing for these families!
The final good byes are always hard. We have just 1 more ministry day left. Tomorrow we will visit our kids in high school and have some fun. In the afternoon we will take a few high school students with us on an outreach event to a large special needs school. Friday we go on safari. It's a special time of enjoying this country we have come to love, process all that we have experienced and beginning to turn our thoughts toward home. Saturday we return from safari, pack and have our closing meeting with our missionaries. Sunday morning at 2am the team heads for the airport to fly home. Please continue to pray for health and safety as we move through these final days.
