I sent out an email to our mailing list today, only I accidently selected the wrong field for choosing who gets the list. So some people didn’t get it, and some folks who had requested to not get it got it. Anyway it was a technical error on my part, or really I should just blame it on my wife and kids. They do constantly interrupt me all day long, mistakes are bound to happen.
If you missed it here is the text of the email:
I had this crazy idea of forgoing the mass monthly email and relying on the blog and social media to communicate with everyone. Turns out, not everyone reads the blog regularly nor are all of you on Facebook. So here we are, reunited like long lost relatives.
I want to reiterate my promise to not bombard you with requests for funds. Surely finances will come up from time to time in these emails, but hopefully we can keep the begging to a minimum.
These emails, which will typically occur once a month, are to serve as a reminder; A reminder to think about us, pray for us, send checks, and to check out the blog (and Facebook.) Should you wish to be removed from this email list, just send me a note and I will delete you. Please forward our info to as many people as you think would be interested in what we are doing here in Kenya. We are always interested in meeting new people.
Our blog is running strong; we update it several times a week. It has evolved to be more about the project and less about theology or religion. I do from time to time pontificate on those subject matters; however, you are free to ignore my ramblings. Our blog is the best way to keep abreast of what is going on. Feel free to visit and leave a few comments.
We use Facebook primarily as a way to keep our sanity. It’s an avenue for relationships with people from our own culture and language. We are real people and our updates, comments, photos, etc. reflect our humanity. Here are our Facebook links:
I can say we are living our dream here in Kenya, a dream that would not be possible without the support of our friends. Never assume we are too busy to answer an email, phone call, Skype call, or Facebook post. We need those things, and hopefully have something to offer others as well.
