Tom: Great Report!/accommodations?/learning in everything/Fred Ouko
- Hello Dear Tom and All,
Fantastic to read from you, and to know you arrived safely. And have met Sam and Maria already, complete with hugs!! We extend our own to all of you there. Have you gotten the accommodations issue sorted out? I hope you are not having to be too far away.
Your observation is so very true: that learning abounds in everything, including (and sometimes especially) the struggles and challenges. Why were you excluded from the luncheon? Because you did not register, have enough funds to pay, or other reason?
On the issue of a meeting among you, I think now that you are hooking up with people, you all will find a spot to meet. I'm not sure that meeting at KCYP (Kibera) would be convenient or even appropriate in these circumstances, and Fred Ouko may not be going to the conference himself.
However, for Sam especially, Fred is at kcyp2000@..., and I can try to get a phone # if need be. Tom, did Phylmon respond? Meeting at FPPS would be great in some respects, so hope he will. But perhaps right there at the conference venue would also be OK...this too will be a learning experience, haha!
Will close with immense blessings and "uplift" of spirit, to help carry you through these next few days, and hope you get to write again...and learn a lot, haha!! Love, Janet
