We spent two nights in Nairobi and will be arriving in Amsterdam about the time my Dad adds this post. Thursday night we stayed at the Giraffe Manor and you can see all the giraffe pictures below. Friday morning we had a visit from Zachary, a young orphan we support through Compassion.
In one of the pictures with Zachary, included on the far left is Rudy, who manages Giraffe Manor with Maryanne, in red (middle back). Next to him is David, who works at Zachary's Compassion project. Rudy loved the children and taught them a lot while we were there, took them on nature walks, and showed them his new puppy.
Friday afternoon we moved to Ngong house, which is another lovely retreat. Dan and I and the 5 youngest stayed in a luxurious log cabin, while the girls stayed in a darling bungalow across the property - a minutes walk.
Peter (who we supported through Compassion for many years) is now grown. His wife and child came to dinner Friday evening. Ngong is a lovely place with much bougainvillea. Will post those pictures upon our return. Thanks for all your prayers…
Heather for all the Hollands
