Kurungu-our up-country stay- in pictures

Isaiah pointing out common Kurungu scenery- camels!
The incredible house we were privileged to stay in, built by missionaries, Walter & Monica, who are Rick & Carrie's ministry partners and on home assignment right now. It was built as four mud huts connected by halls, with cooling thatch roof.
