May 21-24, 2014 – Visiting projects in Lamu Island

After the Acro group left, our family left for Lamu to visit projects and friends.

Before I left I met with Charles Rioba our partner for water drilling and MP Joseph Limo to discuss various water projects.  Rick Wiebe was also present.

We also visited the newest school we are building on the Manda island. Manda –Maweni school The school was refurbished by Helga Bairos and Mary Lou Figueiredo who were on a trip a year ago. They saw the need and transformed the place. There are 126 children now.
