"And if you SPEND YOURSELVES on behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness and your night will become like the noonday."

"The Lord will continually guide you. He will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail."- Isaiah 58:10-11

It has been an absolutely beautiful day here in Nairobi - about 85, dry, with a nice breeze.  We went swimming for about 2 hours in the new Rosslyn pool.  It was so amazing to go swimming outside in March!  The kids keep saying, "I can't believe we're in Africa!  This is awesome!"  It has been awesome!  The kids climbed an avocado tree, tasted giant honeysuckles, saw their first palm trees, and learned what a flame tree was.  God is so incredible to have created so many cool things!
We have had so much fun seeing our cousins again!  We brought light sabers out for their boys so there was an all out Star Wars battle as well.  Uncle Dave is a hero for fighting with 5 boys!  
You can keep all of us in your prayers as well.  The Matlak family is pretty sick - fevers, bad chest cough, and this is day 4 for some of them.  We'd really like to not get it...We could use a miracle.
