We arrived safely in Kenya this past Monday morning. Sorry for not posting an entry sooner . . . we’ve not had easily accessible internet access until today.
The night flight went well but none of us really got enough sleep. We were dragging by late afternoon. Tents had been set up at the airport to replace the burned building and the entry process into Kenya went smoothly.
We did have a little trouble managing our bags through the improvised customs scanning area (a mobile scanner in the back of a van) but managed with a little help. A nice customer service rep named Celestine helped us through customs and even called the person who was there to pick us up. With the improvised entry process and location the pickup point was not that clear. With all of our bags (minus one which is still lost) piled in and on top of a land cruiser we were on our way.
We’ll write a bit more later as we work through orientation and find out more about our transition to Kijabe – which should take place next week.
For now, thanks for your prayers and support.
Tim, Maureen, Luke & Kate
