On Friday night I took all of the older boys that once lived on the street to see a free screening of Nairobi Half Life. The movie is really good. It is Kenya's entry into the Oscar nominations. The boys had a great time. I have been wanting them to see it because it is about the street life of Nairobi. On the way home we stopped at a local reataurant/pub type place in Rongai and got some nyama choma (meat) and ugali. We did not reach home until about 1AM. Due to Africa time the movie started at least 2 hours late, but that was ok because the boys were an hour late getting to my house so naturally it all worked out fine.

Today Mike and Leslie invited me to Pangani Lutheran Children's Center (PLCC), which is a home for girls in Rongai. Mike gave the sermon at the confirmation and baptismal service that was held there today. It was a really sweet service. Five girls were baptized and 3 were confirmed. The home is beautiful and it was a fun celebration.
In other news since have last blogged. Sarah and Natalie have been back in the states. I had some people over for dinner one night. We made ugali and fish. The fish we bought at an unmarked fish place which they fried for us in the street right outside. It was delicious. I have had a car which has been great because the day I got to start using it all matatus went on strike because of the new traffic laws. They are back working now, but it was a hard 4 days for people because no one could get anywhere.
Mike and Leslie's daughter comes to visit next week so I will get to spend some time with her before I leave for South Africa on Friday! I am guessing it will be 2013 before I blog again so everyone have a great holiday season! Thanks again for your love and support.
