Thank you to all of you who have been praying. Matt arrived at his destination safe and sound. We are coping here at home. I even got over to the church for a bit today to rearrange some furniture. Tomorrow I'm still intending to get into the kitchen and bake some various things.
But, I do covet your prayers for my parents who work at NEGST in Nairobi. Up to this point they have been fairly safe and out of the way. But the violence has been encroaching and security, though unarmed, has been 'beefed up'. There are more and more horrifying stories of the ethnic violence going on-people running desperately for their lives from gangs of people with machetes and so on. PLEASE PRAY.
Not too long ago my parents were evacuated from Ivory Coast when civil war broke out there. They are 'accustomed' to life in heated political climates but no amount of experience makes it easier (or safe). It is very difficult to be stuck and to be praying desperately every day for the safety of friends who have to travel through town, friends who live in the Kibera slum, and friends and faculty on the NEGST campus who are being threatened.
And of course, if you could continue to pray for Anglican and All Christian Leaders to be able to bring pressure to bear and help end the violence.
Thank You. Thank You.
