last week was 'back to school' week here in Kenya and the beginning of a new school year. we opened our pre-school alongside the others and we were happy to welcome our kids back for another school year.
to our surprise, when lox checked in on registry day he found all the children from last year who were supposed to go on to primary school!! we managed to get them registered at a nearby school where we'll be able to keep a watch on their progress and where they'll be in class together.
however, the little ones for pre- school also came and we registered 22 kids for this year. we were also able to give some Muslim children the opportunity to be in our pre-school. they are often rejected from schools because of their religion, but we see it as an opportunity to show them the love of Jesus and to be a witness to their families.
there's a few things we'd like to do this year:
let us know your thoughts!

Welcome to my blog! In case you didn't already know, I'm Ruth. In 2010 I graduated from University and before I even had time to settle down and get a job I felt a tug on my heart to go to Kenya for a few years to help in any way I could. When I arrived it was love at first sight; I loved the more relaxed way of life, the way Kenyans would laugh at EVERYTHING and the way people would put people first. On my first day there I also met Lox, a tall, dark & handsome African man who had the same passions in life as me and the more we worked & laughed together the more we fell in love & after a couple of years of dating we tied the knot & got married. Now I live, work, eat & sleep Kenya. It's great to be able to help those who are in some ways less fortunate than me but amazingly I always feel that I'm the one who gets blessed and learns so much from the people I try to help and from everything I do. Enjoy my blogs which give you a taste of this crazy yet wonderful life I lead.
