January 2020
What a wonderful way to kick off a new year and especially the year of 2020. Amazingly special to be greeted once again by the Mamas and children as Clare and I arrived from the airport to Karibu Nyumbani orphanage. I had quite forgotten what a very special loving place it is. My 3 week stay was spent plugging into the daily routine with lots of family time but also visiting the new school. Not to mention the most enjoyable worship time with the children, aunties and uncles. I returned to the UK full of blessings received from my KN family and look forward to being with them again in the summer of 2020. My Swaheli is not great yet but it was strange being back in my home parish and hearing the Mass in English so my ear is definitely getting used to the language.
What a sad world bearing the Covid 19 virus – KN and the world are in my prayers with utter trust in the Lord.
