The Rev. Dr. Robert Carlson

I'm sorry, I'm going a little nuts with the pictures. Here is my dad being ordained by Archbishop Nzimbi in the Cathedral in Nairobi. Looks like it was a beautiful day. We're so jealous that we weren't there. As you can see, there are various bishops (whom Matt and I met at GAFCON) and my mom and dad and the church. Just for the purposes of needless bragging, Matt and I met Archbishop Nzimbi (I'm sure he doesn't remember) by the Sea of Galilee at the place where Jesus is believed to have reinstated Peter. We were on the same bus on our day around the lake. I dabbled my toes in the water and thought that it must have been an awfully huge relief to be out of Jerusalem after all the madness, eating breakfast and having Jesus say that he loves you. His Grace was very pleasant. I am particularly enamored of his beautifully embroidered hat in the picture below. And my dad's hat is very fetching as well.

It was a long, happy, amazing day. Such wonderful bishops. And the Bishop from Garissa (David Mutisya) is one of the most holy men I've ever met. He's the one on the left in the third picture down. Mutisya is a missionary bishop in a dry and thirsty land, but came down from Garissa to take us all (ordinands and spouses) through a three-day retreat before Sunday. He also preached at the ordination service. WISH you had been HERE.
