Kimana tell you whats going on…

So yesterday we made it to the town of Kimana, which is near the border of Tanzania, within sight of Mt. Kilimanjaro . After a long drive, we arrived at the Kilimi Safari Lodge, where we are staying, and then headed out to have dinner with Tyson’s Family. Tyson works for the Oloile School, where we will be teaching, and is the brother of Moses, who has been traveling with us in Kenya. But this was no ordinary dinner. We were going to have an old fashioned goat roast, African style.

But for those of you who have had roasts this is slightly different than what you would see in the US. The main thing being that we got to see the goat killed there in front of us. Pretty bloody, but pretty awesome at the same time. Sam even coaxed Alex into eating a raw goat kidney, just like the natives usually do. All in all it was a great experience, the goat was great, and Alex turned out okay despite his strange decision.

And so today our group made our way over to the Oloile School to teach the first two sessions of Sex, God, & Me. And though at times the material was difficult, the kids at the school responded enthusiastically, and wanted to learn more and asked many questions. Sam and Alex ran out of the 200 note cards they had for questions, and Meg, Virginia, Stephanie, Emily, and Rachel had a similar experience with the girls working in small groups where they talked about a lot of the issues that they deal with in their lives. We are all extremely excited to go back tomorrow, even though we are very tired and ready for a good night’s rest.

On a side note. Stephanie got married to a Masai Warrior. Pictures to come soon.

    Praying that “whenever you open your mouth, words will be given you so that you will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which you are ambassadors.” praying that you will declare it fearlessly. (Ephesians 6:19-20).
    With love, Nancy Turner
