Surprise Journey To Kenya

Home » News » Surprise Journey To Kenya

In January I sat in my hospital bed not sure I'd ever make it to Kenya again. I'd made all the arrangements for a Karibuni Work Party to visit the projects in February, and I was unable to go! When the plane took off in February, with eleven instead of twelve people, I actually sat in the hospital bed and cried!
The doctors said I must set some aims to aid my recovery — get me walking and swallowing again. I didn't need to think long — my short term aim was to have a cup of tea, (I longed to be able to join the other patients with a 'cuppa') and my long term aim was to visit Kenya this year!
So started the work toward achieving these aims which culminated in me going to Kenya in September for a month, and visiting all the projects Karibuni supports. My aim here was threefold — to see my many friends in Kenya; to thank the numerous Kenyans who had been praying for my recovery and to thank them for all their love and thoughts; and to demonstrate that I was better.
