Faders Arrive at Tenwek

We are so happy to be here at Tenwek! We had a smooth trip, and we have moved into our apartment (with a lot of help from the Cropseys). Jason has done hospital orientation, and he starts work tomorrow. The girls are having a fantastic time, as you will see.
Thank you for your prayers in this move.
Jetlag is hitting in full force here, so in lieu of written descriptions, here are some pictures of our trip and first days at Tenwek.


Anna rides with the luggage in Nairobi. 11 of 12 pieces arrived with us, and the 12th arrived to us today.




We sleep under mosquito nets here. Anna loves it. Yesterday she forgot what to call it, and she called it a spider net.


Here’s our apartment building home. We live on the first floor, these two windows, and the Cropseys live on the top floor. Anna and Elise are good buddies already.

Great news guys, that is very exciting! We miss you, but can't wait to come visit you some time. Meanwhile, we have 6 inches of snow to enjoy here in Grand Rapids.

Do you know what I first thought when I saw those pictures? I thought "Those girls are going to have a splendid, rich, wonderful childhood." It's great to see them. Hurrah for the internet!
