The volunteer team this year included members, Wendy Buchanan, Darlene Anderson
& Charlotte Marcella.
This trip 23 suitcases were packed for Kenya. They were filled with donated
school supplies, medical supplies, library books, teddy bears soccer balls and a
child size wheelchair.
Richard, our packing expert filled them to the precise weight allowed by
the airline. Wendy and Richard pack and itemize the contents of each suitcase
with help from member Sharon Cuttell.
We always make quite a sight as we arrive at the airport with a caravan of
trolleys to check in!
After a long flight and long delay for plane repairs in Paris, we finally arrive
in Nairobi! What a great sight to see David our administrator waiting for us
with a van to drive all the suitcases on ahead to Kisumu where we will be
staying this trip at the Mill Hill Mission House.
Tired but happy to finally be back in our much loved Kenya, we spend a day in
Nairobi and a night in the famous Stanley Hotel before a very early flight to
Kisumu in the morning.
