Well, not quite yet. We leave Nairobi for Loki on Saturday, if everything gets finished, like my pilot license renewal. Friday is packing day, then Saturday we drive to Eldoret, and Sunday to Lodwar, and Monday to Lokichogio. I feel a little guilty about travelling on Easter Sunday, but only a little. For one thing if we stay here much longer we’ll settle in and not go, and they definitely need the help in Loki. For another, I can’t stand Nairobi…but that’s enough whining.

It occurs to me, though, that I don’t often write about spiritual matters on this blog. I’m not sure if this is odd for a missionary or not. Mostly I’m trying to tell the story of what we’re doing here so that family and friends have some idea what we’re up to. But we -are- missionaries so perhaps some more spiritual content is in order. Or perhaps I’m just trying to see the spiritual side of driving 2 1/2 days across Kenya (a drive that would take a day back in the US).

It is easy with what I do to lose sight of the end goal. AIM Air flies so that the great commission “…go to the ends of the earth and make disciples…” can be followed. One of the coolest bits of cargo I’ve carried recently was 900 kg of Bibles in Ding and Arabic into Sudan.

Anyway…Lord willing, paperwork complete, we travel north again on Saturday.

    As we say in Orthodoxy, “Your asceticism is always right in front of you. No need to go looking for it.” The drive you describe sounds like asceticism to me. But then so does Lokichogio, actually, from what you’ve said about it.

    Hope you’re there safely by now!!!

    All safe in Loki. We have the house figured out…water was easy, electric was easy, the fridge was difficult (our first trial of a gas fridge. Neat concept, no moving parts, but very very tempermental.)

    No flying yet. I go to Nairobi Saturday to fly some AIC pastors to Lodwar on Sunday, then back to NBI that afternoon, and flying back up to Loki on Monday. Seems a bit roundabout, but…

    The kids and Susan are settled in pretty well. Sam loves the place…there’s two other kids her age to play with and she’s been having a great time.
