We are already halfway through the book of Deuteronomy.If you have been walking along with us,that’s great!Keep it up!If you are new do not hesitate to start now and catch up during the weekends.
This past week has been quite emotional for many Kenyans.
Our former first lady,Her Excellency Lucy Kibaki passed on.
For many of us,she was the first first lady that we saw in office.
What I liked about her is that she knew who she was.Even when challenged with the presence of the ‘other woman’,she made sure that she was the one in the limelight!Instead of filing for divorce,she stayed put and fought for her marriage.
When asked to be humble like other first ladies,she asked,”why do you want me to behave like other first ladies,I am Lucy Kibaki,and I will not change.”She was a tough lady.
At 82years,Mama Lucy has lived a full life,may the Lord comfort her family and Kenyans at large.
We thank God for blessing us with rain.We are very sorry for those who have lost their loved ones through the recent heavy rains.
Our president led the nation in burning 105 tonnes of ivory worth $172 million,to show that we value our national heritage,the wild animals like rhinos and elephants.
”Ivory is worthless unless it is on our elephants.” President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The next time you see an ivory item on sale,”DO NOT BUY”.That is the best way you can help us to protect our elephants.If you are in the business,please look for another trade.
