Experience Kenya!

Experience Kenya!

I awoke after the best nights sleep after leaving from home. I laid in bed for awhile after journaling. My room was the size of a dorm room cut in half. Outside my window I could hear the rush of cars on the busy Nairobi streets. People began to rustle in the outside halls as I could hear talking, some showers, and maybe a flush or two. Each room’s ventilation went through the bathroom, so you could hear everything. Everyone began to meet in th halls and chat. As a group began to form we went down to breakfast, we didn’t know what to expect, so we were quite suprised to find hard-boiled eggs, eggs, bread, sausage, corn flakes, and these wheat chunks. When you poured milk over the wheat chunks it expanded. I drank hot water and milk. Everything was good. After we were done we had an hour or so to pack. I was pretty much ready to go so we all started to talk in the halls. Matt and I got into a conversation about Jesus being a Jewish rabbi and all the stuff that went along with that. It was a nice conversation about Rob Bell too. Soon we started to take all of our luggage downstairs. We started to talk with the security guard. After awhile we heard music from the basement. A group of us went down there and listened and joined in. There we four short-term missionaries (3 boys and one girl) and a student from the University of Nairobi. I can still remember a few words, “God is good all the time, all the time He is good.” We got all of our luggage as Joey made us leave (haha). (more…)
