We had an extended devotion that included two prayers. The district superintendent of the Methodist church spoke briefly. The plaque memorializing the Mubichi Foundation and VIM was opened to view by Fridah and Jean. The spigot was turned on and some students came forward and filled their cups with drinking water. Another student put his hand over the spigot and gave those standing nearby a shower with this blessed water. The whole ceremony was dignified and meaningful. Kanana would gave been thankful for this memorial.

We adjourned to a hall for refreshments of tea, coffee, doughnuts and biscuits where team members visited with others. Fridah had said we’d be there an hour, but Kenya time prevailed and we returned to work at the library at 5:30 vs. 4 p.m. We worked there until dark, cleaning up debris from the day’s efforts and setting up for the new day. Then it was back to the Mubichis for another tasty Kenyan meal. By the time we got back to the hotel, we were all too glad to fall into bed.
