Jamhuri Day 2014
December 12th is an annual holiday for independence in Kenya -- Jamhuri Day.
Kenyan Airforce planes zoom over head, as public celebrations take place around the country. It is a special time as people people remember their independence from Britian in 1963 and their entrance into the commonwealth as a republic in 1964, both events having happened on the twelfth day of December.
For our family, it is a wonderful pre-Christmas celebration with friends who will not be around over actual days of Christmas. Most years, we share the day with others in backyard barbecues or festive dinners.
This year, we had fun with our friend Melanie McKee who will be visiting family over the break. Kerry Jividen and little Zuri also joined in the fun.

Thursday night was our last choir concert for the year. It was a great evening of Christmas music preformed by the Middle School bands and choirs.
Our kids are ready to head into their last week of school for 2014. There will be exams, final assignments and of course classroom Christmas parties.
Thank you for praying for our family and ministry.
