We arrived in Kenya late Wednesday night and it is now Monday afternoon.  We have really been busy!  We bought a car (the only one we looked at!).  It was love at first sight!  Tomorrow we will sign the lease on a house! 

The car is a 2003 Toyota Prado that seats 8 and will haul the equipment and generator so we can take “The Jesus Film” into the outlying villages.  The fact that it has air conditioning and good shock absorbers is an added plus.
The house is in a secure area, has four bedrooms, a nice patio and a plot for Don’s garden.  There are some minor repairs to be done before we can move in; but we should be in it before the first of May!  There is extra room for guests, so let us know when you want to come!

We are amazed at how much God has helped us accomplish in our first week here!   Our thanks goes to God and to all our friends and family that have been praying for us.  We are so grateful to the Johnsons for all their help and their hospitality.  They are taking really good care of us!

We also want to thank our Pastor, Brad Howard, and the people of LakeShore Church for a wonderful send off on Sunday, April 10!  Anna Holland and the Mission Council outdid themselves!  We were so blessed by the outpouring of love and support.  We are so honored to have the blessing of our home church as we follow where God is leading us.

We appreciate your prayers during this transition time.  Setting up a household here is not like "back home", it takes twice as long to do half as much!  Please pray we will have patience and wisdom.

Our prayer for you is that you will be blessed and strengthened in your faith!

Your missionaries in Kenya,
Don & Becky
