Ephesians 2:8-9 "For by grace you have been saved through faith and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast"

Well Summer is fading fast and Fall is in front of us here in the Rockie Mountains. Everyone is trying their best to grab the last days of outdoor recreation before the snow begins to fall. This is a great time to be thinking about traveling to Africa-it is Spring.
Stan is doing well and deciding if he wants to start another session of training.  Cliff and Dan are praying about heading over in the next month or so.

 Dan will go to South Africa to help Pat at Anathoth Retreat near Cape Town, then to Zimbabwe to visit the rural schools, then to Kenya to work with youth soccer.  Cliff will travel to Zimbabwe for a pastor's conference then to Kenya to do CR organization tasks and schedule Spring pastors training. Paula will hold down the fort until January and apply for a few grants for mental health training.


Thanks for the email. It is always good to hear how things are going. Good to see Robbie and Katrina  doing so well.  It was kind of interesting to see how it started in someones living room with 7 students.  I had to laugh when you said Dan may be a little apprehensive about being on this side of Nairobi. I remembered when I was considering moving to Kayloe I too was a little apprehensive. I would wake up in the middle of the night wondering what in the world I was doing and if it would end in disaster. Well, now that I have been here for a while I can say there is nothing to worry about. In fact I actually prefer it here over Westlands.

The thing is once you get to know the people it changes everything. I have friends here and in Kayole and the people here appreciate me. In the Westlands you are just another Mzungu (white man) but in Kayole when I walk down the alleyways I am greeted everywhere with "How are you?, How are you?" Everybody is glad to see me and people I don't know greet me and I get a great sense of welcoming. They don't see too many whites in Kayole and especially the children are always glad to see you. I come to Kayole early on Saturdays and Sundays just to have time to talk to people.
My Swahili is coming along but it is still difficult. I should spend more time on it but it will come together with time.

Bible Classes are beginning to wind down and I am wondering what I will be doing next. I'm not sure I want to begin another session here. Will have to see what God has in store. Well, I have to go. I am trying to work on getting Vine's copies from my computer and printed out so the students will have it available but it is a big project.
Say hi to everyone. Later, Stan
