"Piga pitcha!" these girls shouted when I walked by on my way to Easter/birthday breakfast at Michelle's. (Take a picture!) I had been to their house before to take photos for Juli, so they associate me with a camera. I stopped, said the usual greetings, took their picture, and was on my way. Later, when I walked the same way back (this time with Juli), they came back. Little Jemu (next to me) was so sweet! All of two feet tall, Jemu came running with her arms in the air to hug me. She's adorable. So this time, I could ask Juli to take a photo of me with the girls.

Shortly afterwards, as we were crossing the creek with rain coming down ever so lightly (very, vary rare for the mornings here), one could hear the Sunday school kids singing at the very top of their lungs, "Because He lives, I can face tomorrow. Because He lives, all fear is gone. Because I kno-o-ow He holds my future. And life is worth the living just because He lives."

Amen, kiddos. Amen.


  1. So true! Happy Easter!

    The picture of all of you is to cute.


  2. Jambo from Colorado! I came over here from "One Step Up From Stupid." My DIL is Kenyan - my son met her at Africa Nazarene University outside of Nairobi. Great story.

    She has a blog called Twenty-Eight Celsiue" at - in case you're interested!
