Greetings from Nairobi!

We arrived safely last night.  It is great to be back in Africa!  As the plane landed in Nairobi, I (Shalene) was surprised by my emotion.  Tearfully I looked at Kevin and said, “We are home, well almost!”


We were welcomed at the airport by our trusted taxi driver friend and his wife with a bouquet of 44 roses!  It was a warm welcome!


We continue to be amazed at Little Abigail.  She did wonderful on the trip!  She didn’t sleep very much on the planes or in the airports because she loves seeing new people and new things.  We fully expected her to have a melt down by the time we were driving from the airport to the guest house.  She looked SO exhausted.  But, she just looked up at us with those big blue eyes as if to say, “When will this be over and I can sleep in my own bed?”  We wonder if she will show signs of jet lag in the next few days.  Pray we will all recover well and quickly!  


Continue to pray that all the logistics will go well with buying supplies, connecting with some people here in Nairobi, and running many errands.


Thank you all for your prayers for our journey.  They are truly felt!




  1. We are so thankful you made it safely. I pray for you often. I love you guys! Give Abigail a hug from me!

  2. I loved your response to arriving Shalene! And praise the Lord for Abigail - what a wonderful baby. We love you guys and are praying for you!
