Students in Rossholme Education Centre in Kiambiu slum in Nairobi, in the St. John Bosco Education Program in Kitale, in Nambale Magnet School in Western Kenya, and in the Tumaini Children’s Ministry Program in Nyeri are on school break now. Please pray for them all to stay well while they are back in their homes ‘til Term 2 of this school year opens on the 12th.

We are self-supported missioners. We’ve rented our home and our Roton Point unit, and this is the 16th summer that we have lived with local people in Kenya. Last year we kept in touch with our friends here by text and email.

We have visited students in schools in six different regions. We have also spent time with some young people that we, and many of our friends and family members, have helped to go to colleges and universities. Quite a few of them now have good jobs - and they are helping others to improve their lives.


Fall has been warm – a few brave souls are still enjoying swimming in The Sound. The leaves are still very green, but soon they will be brilliant gold and orange.

We hope that you will visit Rowayton Arts Center where some of Marilyn’s notecards are for sale. Marilyn will make notecards with any of the new photos she took in Kenya and Jordan. Just let her know which ones you’d like.
