Two of Marilyn’s photos, “Finisterre - the End of the Earth” and “Sunset on the Atlantic”, are in the Marine & Costal Art 2020 show at the Rowayton Art Center 'til October 10.

RAC has had seven shows since mid-March - five of which were virtual - and Marilyn had photos in five of them. Go to RAC Exhibitions to see all the artwork in these shows.

Marilyn also had 13 of her photos in the RAC Pop Up Sale. You can see most of these in Photo Gallery

Your purchase of any of Marilyn’s photos or note cards, will help to provide food for 226 students in Rossholme Education Centre in Kiambiu slum in Nairobi.


We are self-supported missioners – we’ve rented our home and our Roton Point unit - and we’ve lived with the local people in Kenya for 15 summers. However, this year we are keeping in touch with our young friends there by text and email.

We’ve spent time with young people that we, and many of our friends and family members, have helped to go to school. It is our hope that these graduates will get good jobs - and that they will in turn help to raise other at-risk children out of their poverty.


We couldn't go to Kenya this year, but we kept in touch with young friends there, some of whom we met 15 summers ago. Here is what a couple of them are doing now.

Joyce, who founded the Rossholme Education Centre in the Kiambiu slum in Narobi in 2016, is caring for 226 Pre-school thru Grade 4 students. Her school, and all others in Kenya, closed in March, but with donations from supporters and a lot of hard work on her part, she has distributed food three times to the families of all of her students.

Caroline Kingori has been at Life Ministry Kenya for 11 years, and her husband Paul has been there for 10. They are going on a sabatical for the next three months and are looking forward to this time of spiritual renewal.
