Hakuna Matata team are back

Well we have all returned home safe and sound.

It was an amazing three and a half weeks and there is so much stuff buzzing round in our heads at the moment.

Thanks to all of you who took the time to read our blog and to leave messages for us we REALLY did appreciate every single one . . . although a certain individual on the team did take up a lot of comments . . . not mentioning any one in particular – RORY !!!

Kenya and Kajiado will always be in a very special place in our hearts. The people we met, the children we played with and the fundi’s who taught us how to be ‘proper’ workmen we love you all and miss you.

Words do not really come close to explaining our experience but we just give thanks to God for a very safe and wonderful time.

If you want to see some pictures of us (at last) and of our experience please log onto the youth website where you can see photos of us working at Kumpah primary school. Click on this link text
