Fundraising update, and PLANTS

Blog posts while home in Canada are probably much less interesting than posts written from Kenyan soil, they are also harder to write, but I have an exciting fundraising update and I take off next week for a few weeks so it seems like a good time to share.

Fundraising has been going well. Back in May I sent out my very 1st prayer letter and prayer card, sharing the need with my community (If you never received one, and would like one, send an e-mail to I also shared at my parents' church and anticipate sharing at my own church this September  I have now received totals of where I am at and God has been good: 40% of my budget has been raised. Thank you to all of you that have contributed thus far. That being said, I still need 60% so your support is still needed, please contact me if you have any questions,

As I alluded to earlier in this post I am taking off Monday. I am going to Ontario for a course called PLANTS.

 While I love plants, the course is actually about language. Principles of Language Acquisition: Natural Techniques and Strategies. I will be spending two weeks in Toronto learning how to learn a language and  hopefully also spend some time actually learning Swahili. I am looking forward to learning some tricks that will make the three months of Language learning in Kenya, that I will do in January, a little easier.

The course also coincides with my Ontario relatives' family picnic every Labour day. I will be spending time  visiting family and camping in the Pineries. It has been a few years since I have seen many of my Ontario relatives and I look forward to reconnecting with many of them.
