    Posted on June 22, 2011 by in By Abby

    Tonight was a blast! Andrew is planning for a trip out west next week, and he needs to bring a projector to show the Jesus film.  He wanted to test it out before he leaves. So, we decided to have a movie night outside, and invite all the neighborhood kids. We put out some sheets […]

I am still processing my thoughts on it all.  To be honest, my thoughts […]

    The Heavenly Man

    Posted on February 12, 2011 by in By Abby

    I have never been a big reader.  But when I find a good book I can sit and read for hours.  I just finished an incredible book about 3 weeks ago.  It is called “The Heavenly Man.”  Andrew had started reading it before we came to Kenya, and about a week after getting here he […]

    More-with-less

    Posted on January 29, 2011 by in By Abby

    That’s the name of my new favorite cookbook. Seriously, it’s great! When getting ready to move to Kenya, I knew I would have to leave my cookbooks behind. First of all, they were HUGE and would never fit with the weight limit I had. But mostly, I didn’t know what kind of food I would […]

    We made it…..

    Posted on December 8, 2010 by in By Abby

    Our flight was great.  It left at 5:10pm on Monday.  We got to the airport at 2pm, and made it through security with almost no hassle at all.  Andrew told me that in order to do best with jet-lag, we should sleep on the first plane (Miami to London), and stay awake on the second […]
