Right now, they have nine Kenyan children living in the home. They range in age from 6 to around 6 months old. The majority of them are under the age of 1. Here is the Christmas picture they took.
And then for those that don't know, my brother, Josh, his wife, Rachel, and their new son, Tekoa are also living in Kenya. They no longer live in Eldoret, but are living in Kisumu, which is on Lake Victoria. Josh is going to school to basically be a bush doctor. No that is not the official title, but I think that is what it all comes down to.
Here is the Christmas picture, they took before Tekoa joined the gang.
I tell you about my family so that you can be praying for them. At the end of this month, it will have 10 months since we last saw them. They will be here in August for my sister's wedding, but that will put us over a year of seeing each other.
At times, it is really hard to have them so far away. God knows and he always provides for those times. Here is a portion of my family, please pray for them and if interested check out Children with Hope to see exactly what they are doing. You can also keep track of my family by going to my mom's blog, which I am saddened to say is only updated about once a month. leisterkenya.blogspot.com
