I’m writing from the plane, still sitting at SFO. Departure should be about 10 minutes, if they are on time. This will be short, but for those of you to whom I said, “I don’t know where I will be staying. I’m just trusting it will be OK.” First of all, despite your suspicions, I’m not crazy—at least not regarding this issue. Secondly, I learned from Fr. Kiriti just 2 days ago that 2 of the kids are still at Mji Wa Neema so I will be staying there once again. Margaret is waiting to begin university in Sept and Mungai is waiting for his official graduation from med school as a community health worker. So my trust paid off!!!

It isn’t really 2 days, I just lost a day traveling east. I’ll find it when I come back. It’s 3:30 am in a hotel in Dubai. Although I didn’t feel like I’d slept much on the plane (15 hours) I find myself sleepless now. Sigh! Tomorrow morning I fly to Nairobi, to be met by Fr. Kiriti and will make myself stay awake until a reasonable bed time. It’s the only way I know to get on local time.
More when I arrive. This was just to let you know I am fine and have a place to stay.
