Time in a bubble

The world moves so slowly now and all I see are manicured lawns and greens and yellows everywhere. Time stood still while I was gone and all that I left behind still sits neatly in its place. The home I once knew still is gone and the soulmate I once held in my arms is s

Random filled day

Trying to make sense of my day and it's not really coming together in my head. I decided to visit the school that I call "evil", since I hadn't been there all week. So I prayed and read the bible for some strength to face the school. I got on the piki piki and made the trip

Is that a pineapple in your purse?

As I walked across the border again, this time alone and after a few taxi hiccups and a mile walk thru Uganda to reach Kenya ...I thought something is wrong with this picture. Then I realized this is perfectly normal to walk along the dirt road with cars and bikes buzzing by

Street performering in Africa

Sick again this morning on day whatever in Africa. My stomach feels twisted and angry this morning. I am starting to think it correlates with the days I go to Mugomari school (the evil feeling one). Once on the way there my stomach calms and I pray for strength to not fall o

I wish for comfort and stability but instead I get a turkey

Why am I in Africa? There is a cozy apartment back in Michigan calling my name. It has water and a toilet and even a washer/dryer. What does it accomplish traveling all the way over here to interact with others who don't understand you? Cultural differences and uncomfortable

Meeting between demons and a widow

Do you believe in coincidence or fate?  Yesterday I had hoped to visit the school called mugomari where I felt uncomfortable at. I feel drawn there even though I feel evil there. But those plans fell through and were moved to today. On arrival I felt a bit uncomfortabl

A wedding flower from a girl who has little to giveĀ 

The other day I colored some pictures for a couple girls I've been teaching and wrote them an encouragement letter. I snuck it to them and told them to read when they got home. Today I got replies from them...and one of them drew me a flower, a Wedding flower. What a coincid

Anniversary of change and loss

What happens when a shy widow meets 30 kids in a classroom to teach English vocabulary? An opportunity to stretch myself....whispering kids...and an occasional hand clapping to get there attention. Part way through teaching new English words I noticed some sleepy heads and c
