2010 Trip - 2nd September

We began the day by driving about 1½ hours to Pete's father's farm at a place called Murang'a.
It is a 5 acre farm ("shamba" in kiswahili) where he grows various crops such a maize, bananas, mangoes and others. This was Pete's father's first time to see Keama and it was wonderful to see the joy in his eyes as he saw his grandson for the first time.

We then returned to Nairobi to have lunch with some friends, Dave & Mary at the Amani Ya Juu garden cafe. Dave is the pastor of Parkside Community Chapel, a church plant of Lifespring Chapel.

In the evening we met with our friends, James and Susan, who hosted us last year when we visited Kenya on our mission awareness trip. The traffic on the way there was horrific! When we visited their home last Sunday, Susan busy being the perfect host for us and also James's nephew and his fiance. It was great have this evening to sit and chat over dinner with them. We are developing a special friendship with them that spans the vast distance between our homes.
