Last week, one of the SCCs (Small Christian Communities) of our outstation parish had their weekly prayer in our house. After prayer, they gifted us with a tea table for the sitting room, provision items, and some cash. The SCCs in this diocese are very active and vibrant. A couple of days ago we visited the home of the Chairperson of St. Paul’s Gongoni Parish Council who is also the Secretary of a Cooperative known as SACCO. They give loans to small entrepreneurs. He and his wife gifted the Sisters with the T-shirt of the Cooperative.
The schools are closed until mid-May. The completing classes Standard/grade 8 of primary section and Form 4 of Secondary section are having their final exams.
We have started language classes informally. A teacher from the local primary school is helping us to learn the language, Swahili.
We hope to do some shopping and get the basic necessary things we need for our living. There is a surge of COVID in Kenya, especially in the cities. So the Government officials have called the people to follow safety protocols. Thank you for your continued prayers.
