Stories from Kenya: Day Three – Rest Day

For me, Sunday was a real pivotal moment in Kenya. We were approaching the halfway mark of our trip, and I was tired. It sounds awful, but I needed a break from the intensity of the trip, and this Sunday was everything I needed.

The church also had a visiting speaker on this particular Sunday, and she gave a very powerful message. It was a privilige to sit under her teaching and worship at this church.

P1020242After church, we went for lunch (and I’m not going to lie..the only thing I can remember about lunch is drinking the most delicious strawberry lemonade I’ve ever tasted!) and then we headed off to the National Park for the afternoon. It was a wonderful day of rest, and it came at just the right time. There’s not really many words for this part, so I’ll leave you with some photos.
