Car Doctor Calling

The AA man was called Raphael.
And he fairly lived up to his name, which means "God heals".
As it only took him a few minutes to cure my poor sick car.
Although he wouldn't let me drive off in it straight away.
As he wanted to take it for a test drive first.
So for a little while, Raphael disappeared with my car.
And I was left alone in the lay-by with his.

Where Would We Be Without ... ?

That's my 21 year old car. Last Saturday. Going nowhere fast.
I was travelling from New Life Nairobi to New Life Nakuru.
Got as far as Naivasha. When the poor old girl overheated.
Forced to pull off the road. But thankfully, found this lay-by.
The sun was directly overhead. So I hid under an acacia tree.
Took this photo. And waited for ...
the AA Kenya van. And the AA Kenya man.
That's him, standing on two cans, to reach the radiator.
Thank God for the AA!

Chapati Champ

Twice a week all the men at New Life meet over lunch.
Office staff, drivers and groundsmen. All round one table.
We pray together. Study the Bible together. And ... eat together.
This is my plate of beans, lentils and cabbage from earlier today.
What you can't see is my favourite piece of the lunchtime puzzle.
The thick, warm & ever so slightly greasy chapati!

Little Boy Blue

That's Susanna's finger.
Getting a big grip. From a little boy.
I love all the shades of blue in this picture.
Not sure who took it (wasn't me). But I love it!
Thought you might too?

Sunny Side Up

Solar water heating panels are going up on our roof just now.
Thanks to a wonderful UK donor.
Talk about a gift that will keep on giving.
Our calculations project that our power bills will be cut in half.
This year. Next year. And every year thereafter.
We are so thankful that the panels are going UP.
And the bills are coming DOWN.

That's Justice For You

On Tuesday evenings I attend a small home Bible study group.
I really like it. And I really like the people in it.
One of those people (all good friends of mine now) is Justice.
Justice is a Principal Judge here in Kenya. Better watch myself!
That's him above. Looking very pleased with himself.
And the reason for that?
We were celebrating - with some style - his 60th birthday.
Another 6 years and it will be me!
