Meeting New Friends in Kenya

The Gilbert Family (Pat, Paul, Rachel and Aunt Julie), from Boston and Chicago were our guests this past Sunday. They are the second guests the girls have had the pleasure of meeting this year. The family was more than happy to be in Kenya and to meet these wonderful girls who they spent the afternoon with. The girls had prepared presentations to make, one of the poems being "My People" by Langston Hughes, which aids them in understanding one of the topics they are currently learning (BELONGING) and was presented by Grace, one of the new girls.

Afterwards, the girls gave our visitors a tour to part of their neighborhood where the family enjoyed spending the time with them and getting to know the girls better. At the end of the day, everybody was enriched in one way or the other and we would be more that happy to host the Gilberts any day whenever they visit Kenya!
