Had the opportunity to play the game 'chicken' with a pikipiki (a motorcycle) this week while on my bike. They use motorcycles here as personal taxis since they are faster than cars on the dirt and bumpy roads, and can go pretty much anywhere.
Before we switched areas, my companion and I were teaching a very humble older lady whom always sat and didn't talk much but seemed to understand the things we were sharing with her. When we asked her if she would be able to come to church- she said she was unable to walk due to her bad feet and weak knees on the varying terrain and is quite sick. The walk from the mountain (more like a big rock formation) where she lives in her humble home isn't the easiest- especially for someone in that situation. She wanted us to pray for her- which is what we had been thinking as well.
15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up..."
ps - About the packages from Durban . . . they are finally being shipped from Durban. However, due to the weight, they haven't decided how or when I will get them from the Mission Home. They may break things up and send them in the courier pouch, or they may take it to Dar Es Saalam for our next zone conference in about a month. Or they may wait until sometime when I am back in Kenya. So know they are on the way and will eventually arrive. Thank you again for sending them! I really appreciate it and your thoughtfulness.
About the Pringles can trick, we found out the Pringles can is pretty spendy to ship to Kenya, even at a very light weight.
