En route to Mwingi
After flying 27 hours, Vidar has now arrived Mombasa. Cathrine and the kids are left in Tulsa. Mombasa, like most of Kenya has two rain seasons in the year. It is now towards the end of the long rain season, so everything is green and the weather is cooler than usual – although Mombasa is never cold.
Tomorrow brings the remainder of the journey – about 10 hours by car to make it to Mwingi, northwest of Mombasa. We have heard that a good portion of the road is repaired, so hopefully the ride will be smoother this time around.
In Mwingi we have about 25 students waiting, many of them from very remote areas around. Like our previous two trips to Kenya, Vidar will be teaching for two weeks, and then conduct the graduation.
Opening school in Kitui
Next Saturday, Vidar and the team will travel to Kitui to promote the school at a pastors’ conference. We plan on opening the school in Kitui in October. Around 100 pastors are expected at the conference, and many of them have asked for the school to come to their town. Please pray for wisdom and strength as we present the school to this group.
From time to time people ask us what our costs are for each student. Our students pay about US$55 for tuition. That includes all 22 subject, and they receive about 15 books. But we subsidize their payments and our costs are about $500 per student.
Graduation in Kisumu
This time, the pictures are from last months’ graduation in Kisumu. The students in Mwingi will graduate Saturday, June 7.
