“Do you feel like Kenya is home or the US is home?” she asked me with a quizzical look on her face.

We love Kenya. It’s the second greatest country on earth. Our friends and family and church are here. Our way of life is here. People deliver milk, flowers, meat, and other helpful things to our door who stop to chat. Time is under us. Friends pop in unannounced and stay for chai and work gets pushed aside for relationship.
It’s also hard to be in Kenya. It’s impoverished and slow. The customer is never right. Excellence is hard to find. Everything is done by hand – road construction, excavation, foundation work, etc. Corruption in leadership and government impacts everyone. It’s under efficient at the expense of progression.
