Let start by just saying that we always intended on being better at this communication thing!!
You see, the thing is that after a while, your exciting move to the mission field on the other side of the world seems less exciting and more like everyday life. Then you find yourself wondering what’s so interesting about our life that is different to anyone else’s? Do people really want to hear about our life? But we know that so many of you love us, just as we love you and we know that many of you pray for us and support us in many ways. Words cannot express our gratitude for those of you who care for us so well.
So here is the latest family news from us:
Our girls are as always right in the centre of our lives here in Nairobi. They are currently on their VERY long break from school (11 weeks). On 15 August, our girls start another school year at Rosslyn Academy which is a great Christian international school. Zoe is commencing 5th grade, Pippa 4th grade and Lucy is starting pre-school (half days). This will be the first time all three girls have all been in school here. They are all excited to be back at school soon and they loved buying their school supplies for the year the other day.
In June, we had Fiona’s mum and dad here to visit for 4 weeks. It was so lovely to have family around and the girls especially loved jumping in bed with them every morning (and we loved the sleep ins). We spent our time with them with a mixture of ministry, tourism and just hanging out.
Recently, some good friends here blessed us by inviting us to go on holiday with them. It was really lovely to spend time together in Kericho, tea country. It was so lush and green with rolling hills of tea everywhere you look. We are glad to get to know another family better. God has really been answering our prayers for deeper friendships here.
OUR NEEDS (please pray for):
We love hearing from you so please let us know how you are too.
Love Anthony, Fiona, Zoe, Pippa & Lucy
Part 2 - Ministry - coming soon! ... If you would like to connect with us or support us please head to our website for more details.
We are a family who are just seeking to do what God wants us to do. We have heard God speak and we want to be obedient to his voice, and are excited by what He is going to do when we respond!
