In July I related the story of Jerry O, a young Kenyan orphan boy whose story surprised me and touched my heart.

Today I visited the Hope School in Mbita Kenya and in one classroom the teacher plunked this kid into my arms. “Here is your friend, Jerry”
His problems continue but the child looks robust and is obviously being cared for by the school and his adoptive mother. A delight to see him again.
On Tuesday morning I also met Lorraine Kathryn, six month old daughter of Kennedy Onyago who was name was taken from that of my mom (Lorraine) and my daughter (Kathryn) and granddaughter (Cate Lorraine). I introduced you to little Stewart Geddes last week … Well, meet Lorraine Kathryn (Kathy) today! Another Geddes namesake – an honour for our family.
These are such beautiful photos, John…the happiness these children bring you is evident in your face.
John, your family of “kids” (both human and goat!) is growing by leaps and bounds. Just think of your geneology in a few hundred years!! When it all comes down to it, we’re all simply part of an enormous extended family that spans the globe… Africans seem to know this better than we do!
Does the bishop look Anglican to you, Evelyn? Or Catholic? There are many of them in the field beside my room. So colourful.
I’d say the bishop is a little too “orange” to be Catholic.. even too “orange” to be Anglican! Definitely a Protestant Bishop, with an orange head and black cassock 🙂
