I slept great, but I was dead tired and so was everybody else. We had breakfast  and then went upstairs to rehearse skits, songs, and icebreakers. We spent a few hours doing that. A few people were feeling sick so four dropped out when we went to practice soccer in the field. There was already stuff going on on the field so we found a side patch of grass and spent about thirty minutes going over various soccer drills and moves. We then walked back to our hotel. We had a nice break until lunch, so I just rested in my room. (more…)

I slept good again. I went down early and saw Matt already chatting away with the staff. So I headed back upstairs to work on my journal. 40 min. later it was time for breakfast. Breakfast was the same. They give us the choice of Passion juice, coffee, tea, or milk and water. All are good. After breakfast we went to the fourth floor (which is really they 6th floor). Today was the first day we went int there. It’s a conference room, as well as a gym (bad equipment and floor). We didn’t see the other room. All morning we practiced skits, Bible stories, songs, etc. We were all sweating and tired by the time we were done. After a quick round of Ninja it was time for lunch. We ran! (more…)

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…)

Amsterdam yesterday was awesome! We chilled in the airport for awhile before it was time to board. There was a McDonalds that had nothing really out of the ordinary other than calling medium Big-Macs. Hmm…..figure that out. So we all chilled, went through security AGAIN, and chilled some more. We were using the same airline and this time it was a bigger and less crowded plane, so I got a whole row to myself. After some ginger ale after a nice take-off, I enjoyed the landscape. They had power wind mills and tons of green land and rivers. Lunch was a nice spicy Tsau Chicken with rice and veggies, noodle salad and desert. Soon as we went from the Netherlands to Germany and onwards the Alps began to rise. (more…)
