No, not our moving day just yet. We have become very good friends with a dear Kenyan family. We have been working for many years to get them moved from a “colder” climate to a “warmer” climate for health issues. The new location is just eleven kilometres down the escarpment. They have been waiting for their new house to be finished and they have had much help to get it to where it is. After two years of building it is finally ready for them and we are not wasting any time in getting them into that new house.
We started at 8:00 am. Todd drove the RVA truck to the house to pick up the old house that their sons, Steven and Simon had lived in as boys. It was now going to be the kitchen (jikoni) at the new house. We hired three guys to build it at the new site while we moved the rest…
We also hired two additional guys to help move things from their house to the loading point up the hill, plus there were lots of family and neighbours helping….
Up the big hill to the road above. It is hard to appreciate just how steep it is in these pictures. However, just walking up it is hard, carrying things up it makes it seem that it is going straight up. Lots of neighborhood kids stood watch over everything at the top.
It is incredible to us what the ladies carry on their backs. Here is Teresa, their daughter, who single-handedly carried the stove the entire way up that hill!!!!!!!!
At the new house!
The kitchen went up fast.
