We have made some good friends while being here. There are a few in particular that have been a great encouragement to us! About once a week, we get to hang out with Hope, Godfrey, Fred & Teresa at their house (which is about a 10 minute walk from us). Hope is an American married to Godfrey (a Rwandan who does the administration for YWAM). Fred and Teresa are from Kenya. Hope, Fred, & Teresa run a ministry out of their home working with prostitutes and their families. We usually cook a western-ish meal while we hang out: it is fun to hang out with people we don’t work with every day, and to cook and eat some familiar food. A few weeks ago Hope asked if we would be willing to teach some of the ladies a cooking lesson about once a month. It could be a chance for them to learn a bit, to hang out in a positive environment, and be stretched out of their culture a bit (the food is VERY uniform here; its hard for us to imagine coming from such a multicultural home country). So, we tried to think of something with cheap ingredients, that would be reasonable for them to cook at home, and fairly simple to teach to a group. We agreed on a simple stirfry! Here are some pictures:
I don’t have any pictures of the finished product: we were too busy serving and eating. But it was delicious, and some of the ladies even said they were planning to make it for their families. We’ll see.
thanks for the updates and pictures. You are both in my thoughts and prayers. You both are a great inspiration and I love how you are willing to step in and meet the needs of those around you. God bless you both.
Hey!! Nothing better than cooking and sharing Jesus, I understand ~ I understand ~ I understand.
I think of those days of Eagles Nest… I KNOW you are in the right place and the right time and perfect for the Lord… love ya Heaps!!
