Dear Praying Friends,
      Let me begin with a special prayer request. Please pray for Mary, the daughter of our friends the Kimothos. She has been diagnosed with a serious bacterial infection and malaria too.

         Again we had a fairly busy week and my classes went well on Tuesday and Thursday. On Tuesday the government declared Wednesday to be a national holiday so the boys did not have their normal college class. It turned out to be a very busy day for me. I spent the morning getting some swings ready to hang up because all of the little Rains children are coming over for lunch on this coming Friday (their parents are coming too). When we get all of the little Rains Drops together it can be a real storm!
      After getting as far as I could on the swings (I was short a coupe of bolts) we went to visit Philip Rains and family (visiting Kenya for two weeks) at Michael's house. Then we had to go into Thika for Sue to look over and approve some corrections with the printer who is doing her Christmas book.We returned home for a late lunch and then out to Gatukuyu for prayer meeting at Trinity Baptist Church. When we got home I told Sue that I don't think I need another "holiday"like that one.
      We started a college administrative meeting early on Friday so we could all go out for Ethiopian food with the Pilip Rains family. The meeting still went long, lunch was a bit late but we all enjoyed ourselves.
      Sue did have two ladies come for the Bible study on Saturday and the boys and I were able to distribute many tracts and talk to a few people about the Lord.
      Sunday morning was a blessing. We had nearly forty children come for SS with twenty-five on time. Philip Rains was our first American visiting preacher at Trinity Baptist Church. The room was full but I'm not sue if it was for the preaching or for the attraction of two little white children? Our children (and adults) really enjoyed meeting little Jonathan and Leonna - and I m loving them too!

In Kenya for Christ,
Rick, Sue, Aaron and Daniel Simonsen
