We are back at Kijabe on the campus of Rift Valley Academy ... my high school. The last couple of days Doug and Lisa have had meetings preparing for the start of school on Monday. We took the opportunity to meet friends from our school days who are working here also. It was exciting to meet up with David and Jeanie Morse and hear about the work they are doing. David teaches at the seminary here but they have other opportunities they pursue also. It was great to catch up with them and their children while we were here. Jeanie went to high school with me and than became good friends with Jan in college and we have continued to be a part of their lives over the years.

Eileen, Kim and Amanda got to China with no delays but when they arrived, their luggage did not arrive with them. The luggage did arrive late yesterday so they were glad for that. They have definitely had a trip to remember and we hope they have experienced enough delays and lost luggage to account for our whole trip so we do not have to concern ourselves with it.
The campus is on the side of a hill. Everywhere you go is either up or down hill. That could be said of the other places we have been but there elevation here causes you to pause and catch your breath. This brings back memories of sports practices and coaches who would take advantage of the hills to ensure their athletes were in top shape ... at least that is what they told us even though we wondered at the time whether they just had sadistic tendencies at times.
