A journey to Kisumu from Magina

Posted by on Nov 5, 2016 in News, Stannard | No Comments

Following last year’s guide to driving in Kenya, we thought we would invite you to join our guided trip from here to Kisumu, the ‘little city’ (according to Millicent) about 30 minutes away. Sue noted down various points of interest along the way. When you read this, you will understand why we pray each time […]

Sue, Richard & Toby update 1st November 2016

We’ve been at Magina, near Kisumu, almost a week as I write this. Apologies for lack of contact – we have had some internet challenges and we have also been busy! But we are all still alive and well – thank you for your prayers and continued interest. A lot has happened since our arrival, […]

Sue, Richard & Toby: expedition to Endau

Sue, Richard & Toby: expedition to Endau

Posted by on Oct 22, 2016 in News, Stannard | No Comments

In the past few days, we have visited the clinic that Pamoja built at Endau. Most people in Kenya have not heard of Endau: it is a remote place. Pamoja trustees built the clinic there because some of them knew the Church pastor, who convinced them that there was a real need in this area. Endau […]

Sue & Richard back in Kenya

Sue & Richard back in Kenya

Posted by on Oct 15, 2016 in News, Stannard | No Comments

Here we are again! We flew to Kenya on Thursday 13th October, flying direct this time to avoid any unplanned stays in Istanbul, such as we had this time last year. Slight hiccup in getting on the plane, as Sue was pulled over in the security check: she had a CD player in her hand […]

Sue & Richard update Saturday 9th April

Sue & Richard update Saturday 9th April As I write in Nairobi late on Saturday afternoon, the rain is coming down and the thunder rumbling around. We’ve had some very pleasant warm days (rather like the best of an English summer) since arriving back here late on Tuesday, but there is definitely a change in […]

Sue and Richard update Saturday 2nd April

Posted by on Apr 6, 2016 in News, Stannard | No Comments

Here we are again!  Weather report first:  most of this week has continued to be hot – so hot in fact that the locals are complaining!  We hit 37 one day, but last night we had a thunderstorm (accompanied by the inevitable power cut) and some rain, and today has become cooler – the locals […]

Sue and Richard update Easter Sunday

Posted by on Apr 6, 2016 in News, Stannard | No Comments

First of all, a very happy and blessed Easter to you all! Unfortunately it is unlikely that you will read this any time close to Easter as the internet here in rural Kenya is even slower and less reliable than it was when we were here in the autumn, so I’m writing on Word while […]

Sue in Ahero, Richard in Nairobi

Posted by on Mar 20, 2016 in News | No Comments

The last two weeks have been strange: we don’t spend much time apart, and I have to say honestly (even!) after over 30 years of marriage, we don’t much like it! But it made sense this time for Sue to make the most of the time available, so that’s what we did. So, according to […]

Sue & Richard in Kenya again

Posted by on Mar 8, 2016 in News, Stannard | No Comments

When we came home from Kenya in November last year we left a trunk of belongings at Ahero as a kind of deposit for future visits. Our next trip is under way! Sue left Heathrow on Saturday 5th March, and Richard is following on 17th March after another couple of weeks in school extracting GCSE […]

Sue & Richard – postscript to our trip

Posted by on Dec 1, 2015 in News, Stannard | No Comments

So, after six fascinating weeks, our trip to Kenya is over. Our last day in Nairobi was spent at the Kware Care Centre, with various Pamoja workers and sponsored children. It was good to meet Stephen, the medical officer from the clinic at Endau. He is surely one of our unsung heroes, working alone as he […]
