We are back

We are back to life in Kijabe – back to small town shopping at the Dukas, bringing our own baskets, shaking hands with and talking to the store owners, greeting each of the ladies who sell vegetables.




We are back to life in Africa – where kind Kenyan women will take your filled-to-the-brim basket and hoist it on their backs to carry it to your car for you. 



We are back to life at RVA, where Evelyn goes to story time on Mondays and preschool on Wednesdays, where Nate attends half-day kindergarten and Ethan is a full-day 1st grader.  



We are back to life at RVA in all of its fullness – a math classroom full of Algebra and Statistics students, a JV basketball team to coach.  I am back in the Guidance office three mornings a week, and in and around our home most other times. 



We are back to life at RVA and the myriad responsibilities that come with living 24/7 with the students we teach.  Things day schools don’t have like sponsoring an entire class of 79 juniors, like dorm cover Monday nights to give HS dorm parents an evening off, like staffing tournaments on the weekend or hosting them at your house. 

We are back to a full, fast-paced life during each term. 

We are back to life in Africa because we have a strong team of prayer and financial supporters, who allow us to live and serve here.  THANK YOU for your faithfulness in giving, in praying and in encouraging us.
