Kapsowar, Kenya

We've arrived in Africa! The plane carried us here on the 27th and we are very thankful to be serving at Kapsowar Hospital in Kenya. The visas for Angola are still in process (the last we heard), and the Kapsowar community has generously welcomed us in the meantime. We celebrated the new year yesterday with patients in the chapel, encouraged by their trust and love for God in spite of their suffering. There is much to get accustomed to, both at the hospital and in the community; but thankful that Priscila's two cesarean section cases today had happy outcomes and that Zeke is enjoying a multitude of new friends. We wish you all a happy new year! 明けましておめでとう!

Looks like you are settling in well! Know you are in our prayers and it's exciting we are all on this same continent, even though it is so large! Your home looks great!
