Konfirmaatiojuhlaa / Celebrating Confirmation
We participated Lake Dioces Thanksgiving celebrations in Kisumu, in which was a lot of program. Children´s time went fine when they found a wheel barrow to play together.
Thanksgiving was important to Child Care Project. On Saturday eight children were baptized and next day 18 confirmed. The total number of confirmed children was 67. In picture the group is heading to church.

Bishop Joseph Ochola is dealing out the programs for service to the deaconess students. Between internship to Matongo gathered students were happy to meet each others. We teachers also enjoyed seeing how two years ago quite insecure young women looked already like real professionals!
Early December we received mission friends from Finland, with whom we climbed on Mount Kenya, Without carriers and cooks our journey would have stopped much earlier. In picture we are in 3300 m and there is not yet mountain sickness symptoms. Next day we walked 9 hours and the altitude increased with 1000 m, which meant that many of us were forced to start the return trip down from the mountain.
Herra varjelee sinut kaikelta pahalta, hän suojelee koko elämäsi. Herra varjelee kaikki sinun askeleesi, sinun lähtösi ja tulosi nyt ja aina (Psalmi 121: 7-8).
The LORD will keep you from all evil; he will keep your life. The LORD will keep your going out and coming in from this time forth and forevermore (Psalm 121: 7-8)
