A Very Special R&R so far

As many of you know, we left South Sudan at the end of April to come to Kenya for a break. We met up with Eli's parents in Nairobi and flew to Mombasa, a beautiful beach on the Indian ocean! We spent 6 wonderful days together swimming, snorkeling, building sand castles, walking on the sand bars, exploring tide pools and eating lots of good food!

These were such happy times for all of us!

Don't we look relaxed?

We took a glass bottom boat out near the reef to snorkel and the boys found all these starfish in the tide pools. They gathered them into one place for the picture and then put them back.

 When we returned from the coast, Eli's 2 brothers and sister joined us! Jason and Caleb were passing through on their way back from a ministry trip to Burundi (in E. Africa) and Alyssa didn't want to miss out on a family gathering so she and our 9-year old nephew Jordan, joined us!

To have some quality time together, we drove 2 hours out of the city to Lake Naivasha and spent 3 beautiful days together catching up, seeing beautiful scenery and wild animals, and being so encouraged by one another.
