2010 Trip - 26th August

Well, what a challenge we faced today!
When we arrived at Dagoretti Corner it was 9am (which is when the seminar was planned to start) but no one was there. We had forgotten about "Kenyan timing"! We probably started about 10:30am but numbers were less than we had been told and many had come without their spouses. Agh!!! What do we do now? Most things planned needed to be done as couples. After all this is a Marriage Enrichment Seminar.
The program for the 3 days was different to what we expected so we had to change things "on the fly" and even cut some things because of time constraints.
By the end of the day there were about 50 people. Tomorrow there will be many more people as it is a holiday. Spouses that were absent today will be able to come and there will also be extra new couples.
Today, we also read in the program that Rob is conducting a wedding on Saturday!!!

    Well there you go. Talk about doing things on the run, just as well God equipped you for it. And you had the background and prepared well for the trip.
    But with a Sovereign Lord, we know it is all in his plan.
    Peace Joy Hope
    Love gary and carolyn

    Praying for you! Even if things aren't going to plan, you have such a gift of getting alongside people and uplifting them, I'm sure people will come away from the seminar feeling God's touch. Love the blog!

    Hi The Corners
    Great to see you got there ok.
