Happy New Year!

In the Cheetah enclosure at the Nairobi Safari Walk

While at the Nairobi Safari Walk a guide asked if we'd like o go into the cheetah enclosure. We gave him an enthusiastic, “Yes!” Our guide and another one in the enclosure grabbed our cameras and took a bunch of pictures of us petting the cheetah. She was purring just like a big cat - a cat that can reach speeds of up to 75 mph!

Once again I'd like to thank every one who supported us and prayed for us while we were over there. It was a blessing to know that you were praying for us. Please continue to pray for Kenya - things have not gotten any better. It's going to take a while for things to settle down and become whatever normal will be for them after this.

I am wondering if you have any advice for me, as I am supposed to travel to Nairobi for the first time tomorrow. Flights are not cancelled, but I am worried....

Thank you for any advice, and many blessings, Kathleen

HI Kathleen,

I am not sure you will read this before heading to Kenya. My advice would be to talk to the hotel, or whoever you are staying with and see what they think. As far as I can tell, the major problems are primarily confined to Kibera, however the city seems to be shut down at this point.

I am praying for your safety.
