Well, I am in the last 3 weeks of pregnancy. Usually I would take this time to relax, prepare my mind and body for the upcoming 'D-day,' and focus on spending quality time with my kiddos before my attention will be shifted somewhat to the newborn. However, it seems as though my life has gotten busier than ever these past few weeks and will continue to be busy up until the baby's due date.
Last week and this week, I have been doing a kind of 'summer camp' for Hindu and Muslim Indian children living here in Kenya. (School is out for the month of December, and here in Kenya, it is hot so that is why I'm calling it a summer camp.) A friend of mine from Korea does this program every quarter when the kids are out of school. I started helping her with it last quarter, and this quarter, I've pretty much done the entire program because this Korean missionary has had to leave to Nairobi. So although it is her project, I'm getting the blessing of doing it! (I mean that in a good way). It's been great fun and also physically exhausting for me as well (I've gained my usual 55 extra pounds in this pregnancy so all the dancing and such is more difficult).
We have about 38 Indian children in attendance as well as my 3 little ones. We come together 4 days a week with fun songs, dancing, Bible study, Story time, games, and snacks. The ages of children range from 3 on up to 16 or so. We still have another week of 'fun' so please pray that God's rest fills me each night and that each day these beautiful Hindus and Muslim children see that God is real, and He loves them very much.
