PHOTOS: Teaching the teen class My new (used) desk being delivered Thanks for the emails. I haven't been spending any extra money because my rent is coming up but I have been eating well. I got a recipe for Sloppy Joes from the Internet as it has always been one of my favorites. I actually found all the ingredients here so I mix up a big batch every now and then. The Africans seem to like it as well. Dennis, Joshephat and a couple of the teens, Kennedy and Dixon all tried it and liked it. They said it would go better with Ugali than over bread like I served it but that is to be expected.

The Samburu District is located north of the equator, an area about 8000 square miles (21,000 km²). The landscape offers diversity and beauty. After independence the area north of the equator was called the Northern Frontier District (NDF). Samburu district was once a large part of the NDF. Only government officials were allowed to enter and it was closed to foreigners of both European and African descent. A special permit issued by the administration was required to enter the NDF. Today the Samburu District is still a remote area
THE SAMBURU BELIEVER: Watching God's gift of pastor teacher in action by a brother in a foreign land is overwhelming! I am reminded of why, we in missions, do what we do. I met Joseph in Nairobi. He came to my classes at the Nairobi Bible Institute and I could see right away that he was a bright young man. I did not know he was from the Samburu Tribe. Most of the men in my class were from the Maasai or Luo tribes. After our five month course Joseph asked if he could drop by my apartment for some help with translating some verses of salvation into the Samburu language.

I could not stop the tears as I thought, 100 Maasai men. In talking to Peter Olonapa, who arranged for me to teach Maasai men this Friday and Saturday at least. I said, "what must I bring. Besides 10,000 shillings for food and transport he said "your diagram of the two sides of the cross." (Thanks Sugar. I will have to simplify). I said, "how many copies?" He said, "there will be 100 Maasais to hear you teach."
