“Next week” finally arrived the night before we left to celebrate Christmas at Sunrise Acres (a group of AIM-owned cabins on a small farm in rural Kenya). 201 boxes, trunks and other items made their way into our home in the hands of many helpers in just over an hour. Many, many thanks for interceding on our behalf! 🙂

Now about 8 weeks into the 12 of maintenance orientation, we slid out to Entebbe, Uganda for a few days after Christmas to scout out where we may live next year. Much more peaceful and beautiful than Nairobi, we eagerly look forward to the chance to serve there.

However, we continue to search out where God would lead us and we would greatly appreciate your prayers to that end: that God would clearly direct us and we would accurately discern what He desires. As everyone knows, there is much work to be done, here in Africa…like elseshere… We just desire to be where He wants us and do the good works He’s prepared in advance for us (1).

(1) Ephesians 2:10

Enjoy pictures from Christmas…and from our trip to Entebbe.

Some of you have asked for pictures of things with wings and props… Here is Slick on the ground after his first flight in Africa: a medical evacuation of a gal from Kasese, a town outside of Entebbe, Uganda. As of now, we’re planning to move to Entebbe later this year (2012), after Slick is done with training. Entebbe hosts the airport that serves Uganda’s capital, Kampala. The airport sits on a peninsula in Lake Victoria, the largest lake in Africa.
