Stan moves AGAIN!

Like we've said before, one thing  you have to be in Africa is FLEXIBLE. Stan Frederick, Crossroads man on the ground in Nairobi, has moved again.  When we all lived in Nairobi last year we needed a larger house but after Cliff and I came back to the states, Stan felt he should move into a smaller place that would be more cost effective. 

He now lives in an area of Nairobi called, Komarock.  It borders the upper slum area Kayole so it can be unsafe if the security guard falls to sleep on his job.Middle class housing areas are gated with 24 hour security.  This is not the type of security gated communities have in the west but it's better than nothing. 

Nairobi is divided into two main areas: The Westlands, the population is predominately white and Indian. It is where the expats, aid and mission headquarters are located. The Eastlands is predominately, black middle to lower class. 

There are pros and cons to living in Komarock. Pro-The Crossroads Bible Institute is located in Kayole so it will be a short distance from where Stan teaches. Con-two hour taxi ride to the Westlands where expats have to go to do certain business (fill out paperwork, etc.) AND it can be unsafe. 

Please pray for Stan's safety as he walks to the shopping areas, bus and to the bible school.The photos below are Stan's new place and neighborhood.
