This will probably be our last update while in Kenya. In 48 hours, we should be at Nairobi airport, preparing to fly home. There’s so much to reflect upon, but for the moment we’ll mainly be writing about our trip to Endau. Sheena, our sister-in-law, arrived in Kenya on Monday last week, as we arrived […]

Keep reading – there are some pictures further down! Our time in Magina has come to an end, and we have travelled from near Kisumu today to Turi, near Nakuru, to visit friends from UK who are here in Kenya for two years, teaching at St Andrew’s School. We’ve only been here a short time, […]

Fowl Wakenings and a Funeral – last Saturday in rural Kenya

Posted by on Nov 5, 2017 in News, Stannard | No Comments

If we hadn’t realised it on previous trips, the last few weeks here in Kenya have reminded us very clearly that life here is very different to what we have in UK. Particularly out here in ‘the rural’ in Luo land, it certainly isn’t just like Chandler’s Ford only hotter! A picture of the day […]

Glimpses of Heaven in mud huts, and other news from Kenya

Posted by on Nov 4, 2017 in News, Stannard | No Comments

Hello again from Kenya. We’ve had a good week here: positive news about Millicent, the politics are settling down, at least for the moment, and we’ve found plenty to do with our friends here. Let’s start with Millicent. She had her triple bypass operation on Tuesday (31st October) and it went very well. Every report […]

Greetings once again from Kenya. This is the usual (for this trip) mix of news about Millicent, politics, and what we’ve been doing. Millicent first. She had a good flight to India and is being well looked after at the hospital. She has undergone thorough tests as a day-patient, and she let us know today […]

These are strange times here in Kenya. The weather is odd for a start: the locals are saying it’s quite unpredictable these days. Not as hot as it has been on previous visits, though still shirtsleeves weather – but plenty of thunderstorms and rain. Heavy rain here also means that the previously dusty ground rapidly […]

Sue & Richard update 18th October 2017: Kware, Millicent, Magina, Elections….

We made it back to Kenya! Despite some misgivings about coming here during a time of political uncertainty (more of that later), we have seen very little sign of any trouble in the places we have been so far. After good flights (from Southampton – so much easier than London!) followed by long queues to […]

Message of thanks from Millicent

Posted by on Oct 1, 2017 in News | No Comments

Many thanks to all Pamoja supporters who responded so quickly and generously to our recent message about Millicent.  We have been able to send over £5500 to Millicent towards her operation, which is wonderful.  Her family is planning a fund-raising event on 5th October and they are hopeful after this that there will be enough […]

Millicent Maguke – update September 2017

Posted by on Sep 17, 2017 in News | No Comments

Millicent is the wonderful lady who, along with her husband Eric, is the inspiration and driving force behind Pamoja’s work in the Magina area.  She is a person of great energy, ideas and passion, and has given her life to serve the Lord by helping the poor people in the place where she lives. In […]
