My dad was here with us for a week. He makes us laugh when he says, "Well, I'll be in Nairobi and I could come down but I don't want to be a bother or in the way." A bother? In the way? He's usually in LA, for goodness sake! It wouldn't matter WHAT we had going on, if my dad turned up in Kenya, we'd definitely be inviting him down to Arusha!
What a joy to have him join us on the last leg of a camping trip with a visiting team. What a pleasure to hear him share some stories around the campfire. His bottom line? God is good. I loved that everyone, age 11 to 50, sat in rapt attention, soaking it up. And I loved that each of us just enjoyed his company so.
Thanks for coming down, Dad! Thanks for enduring the extra days at home alone without him, Mom!
