Mission Trip to Kenya

This weblog records a United Methodist Church sponsored mission trip to Kenya January 12-28, 2006.

As this is a "weblog", the posts are in chronological order with the most recent entries at the top. Working backwards, there are posts about a party we held March 25th to honor Daniel Kibe and his wife. Daniel's firm provided our ground tranportation during the mission. Below that are posts about the reunion brunch we held February 25th after we returned from Kenya. The very first posts (bottom of blog) relate to getting ready for the mission. The actual entries from and about Kenya begin with the post actually dated January 14 but titled "Day 1: Thursday, January 12, 2006 ."

You can read about this mission in an article published in the Oklahoma Conference newsletter CONTACT April 20, 2006.

Team Reunion - Feb 25, 2006

The team held its first reunion on Saturday, February 25 at the team leader's home in Oklahoma City. All 15 members of the team were present and several brought their spouse or "special friend." We were especially blessed to also have Florence and Fridah Mubichi with us.

We discussed fundraising to reimburse Steven Mubichi (he covered much of the cost to get the container out of the Port of Mombosa and to Meru) and also to pay for the water line at the School for the mentally Handicapped.

We looked at one anothers photos of the trip and Jean gave everyone a CD with a Powerpoint presentation featuring over 300 photos related to the mission. She also gave everyone a handout about "Reverse Culture Shock" and we enjoyed a pot luck supper.
