Happy Easter!

      Mom, Dad & Ana were welcomed to Kenya by a 6AM sunrise Easter service service. After a time of prayer, scripture and reflection we placed flowers on the cross. It was truly beautiful to see the sun rise over this cross and rejoice because Jesus is alive. 

We also gave thanks because the rainy season has started. Drought is affecting most of Kenya, but our area is receiving rain vital for crops, animals and people. This rain also replenishes the river and waterfall that provide our hydroelectric power. 

The girls are holding dolls Nana brought for them. Amelia diligently changes her doll based on the weather and time of day. Meredith also carries her doll around and reminds Amelia, "No, sister this is mine."
