Kiswahili at Brackenhurst
Here we are at Kiswahili (the Swahili language) School at Brackenhurst, near Limuru and Tigoni Kenya. After landing in Kenya June 12th, our hosts the Steurys, Manchesters, and Vanderhoofs helped us find the stirrups and ride. They took us to buy phones and food and study materials and pick up the delayed luggage from the airport. They fed us and held our hands. And we are very grateful for their expert guidance.
Then three days later, they dropped us about an hour north at Brackenhurst Conference Center, where we checked into freshly renovated rooms and continued learning how to live in this country. Our language course started on June 16th. We have completed two weeks and are surprised at how much we have learned in a short time.
