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!


Paradise Lost...



My family and I had gone to a place called Paradise Lost.  It was a place that had beautiful scenery such as a very large wooded area, a spectacular waterfall, a large lake that we took a boat ride on, and a huge cave that seemed to go all the way back to the middle of a cliff that was there.  We drove through a coffee field in order to get to the place where we were going, and when we got to the parking area we all got out of the vehicle and walked around a little bit.  We went toward the lake, found a picnic table, and had ourselves a picnic lunch.  After our picnic lunch some of us went to the place where we would get onto a boat for our boat ride.  We paddled around the lake for a while then headed back to the dock.  We then went hiking through the woods.  As we approached the falls the ground around us began to feel soggy.  We got to the falls and we beheld a sight that we had not seen in a long while.  My parents took pictures of us around the falls then we went toward the cave.  We walked into the cave but realized we needed to get flashlights, so my dad and I went back to the vehicle to get flashlights.  When we got back to the cave we gave each one of the family a flashlight and headed into the cave.  Once we got so far into the cave the air started to get warm; we kept going as far as we could go and into a humongous cavern which must have been at least the height of a two-story house.  We walked out of the cave into the fresh air and went to where the horses were.  When we got there all of us children each got a turn to ride the one horse that was healthier than any of the other horses.  When we finished riding the horse we all went back to the vehicle.  On the way to the guest house where we were staying almost everyone fell to sleep because of the long but fun-filled day.
