Just checking in……

Posted in Uncategorized by Lynn Ouellette on 01/28/2015
I have so much to write after the beautiful drive to Nyumbani Village but lack of internet connectivity has made it impossible to blog. I am snatching this small opportunity to check in, even though I am chomping at the bit to write more. I am fine and recovered from having been so sick and have been very busy here in the Village. EVERYONE has been very busy working planting the sisal garden, teaching in the schools, counseling many clients and more. Lilian and I have been to every classroom  to talk about grief and loss and to prepare the whole Village for the Day of Remembrance, the event to be held tonight. We have been getting all the luminaries together with children’s parents names and organizing all the details, rehearsing the songs and more. I hope that everything comes together as planned. It should be beautiful! Today is Brendan and Ryan’s birthday so I want to say Happy Birthday to Ryan and (I miss you) and Brendan, I miss you terribly, and this event is dedicated to you.
I will write more and post many photos when I am back in touch with a regular internet connection. STAY posted, here’s a lot more to come!

    Trusting that the Day of Remembrance event you organized was deeply meaningful to you and to all those you work with who have lost parents, children, and friends. May your gathered light strengthen all of you to remain alive to life and to find comfort and strength in being together. Holding you in my heart.
