Greetings from Nairobi, Kenya. It is good to be back in Africa. I have spent the last few weeks working on an orphonage/resuce home for girls fleeing female circumcision. It is an illegal practice in Kenya, but common among certain cultures here.
In the next few minutes, I will be starting on a five day drive to South Sudan. I will be there until February working with an NGO called Frontline builders (www.frontlinebuilders.org). It should be a rough(fun) journey. Keep us in your prayers.
I just pulled together this mailing list from a few of my email accounts. If you are not interested in my infrequent updates, just send me a note letting me know, and I can remove you. Also, if you happen to receive this letter as forward from one of your friends, but would like direct updates, write me an email letting me know. These notes will also be posted to my blog: http://eatplants.blogspot.com. Also, my partner in crime, Joel Kurtz will be posting a better blog than I will: http://excelsiorr.blogspot.com. Keep in touch.
