Hamisi Students
Happy Students During Field Trip

Kisumu Field Trip

CSA’s Hamisi area students recently went on a Kisumu field trip. They went in two hired busses which took them to Kisumu City after meeting up at the Gavudunyi Friends Church central meeting point. In Kisumu, first they each bought a book at a bookshop, then they found food on their own while walking around town in small (supervised) groups. They then visited a zoo-like conservation area run by Kenya Wildlife Services called Impala Park, and, finally, they went to a fisherman's landing on the shores of Lake Victoria.To learn more about the field trip read a letter from Lydia.

We Thank You Dick

Dick YoungRev. Dick Young, member of our CSA board and vice president for many years, is now moving to a new leadership position at a camp and retreat center on Lake Tahoe. When he had a sabbatical in 2015, Dick took his wife and three young children to Hamisi, Kenya to spend several weeks with children, teachers and villagers there. The family immersed themselves in the culture and community, playing with children, sharing meals and conversations. When he returned, Dick said, “The children grabbed my heart!” On another trip to Kenya he was perched on a building installing a drainpipe for water harvesting from a classroom roof! As a board member, Dick brought energy, insight and leadership to all our pursuits toward the goal of educating disadvantaged children and youth for their future independent, contributing lives. We send Dick and his family off with our deep gratitude and warm wishes for the next chapter of their lives. Thank you, Dick, from the bottom of our hearts!
