Loving Life in Kenya...

We have been serving the Lord as BIMI missionaries in Kenya, East Africa since 1997!  We are happy for the opportunity to serve Him here, and we thank Him for every blessing to our family & ministry.  This is a blog of some of our personal family happenings, and in short - our Shelby Summaries!


Going to a Village...



One of the most exciting places to go is to a village “in the middle of nowhere.”  There are so many things to do.  Usually we use the winding paths through the fields; sometimes there are steep hills, and streams to cross.  When we get to our destination, the adults go inside to fellowship, but we get to wonder around their homestead.  We love watching tiny chicks that are kept under a basket for protection from hawks and cats, and petting baby animals.  We have fun playing games with the kids, climbing trees after avocadoes or mangoes, and exploring everything.  Sometimes we go on walks with some of the other children; they take us through back ways, show us the river they fetch water from, and show us their work on the farm.  One time, we helped shuck maize.  Villages are away from the hustle-bustle of city life.
