CAIRES ON MISSION

Thankfulness During a Wonderful
Time of the Year


It really is the best of seasons in Kenya. The rains are ending, the sun has come out, and summer has begun. The monkeys are more frequently on the roof so that we keep closing and opening our windows trying to prevent the occasional banana thievery as they brazenly come into the house looking for a treat. The kids are out of school and so the stress of studies are a distant memory. Allison is in the kitchen enjoying her favorite hobby, cooking, and Will is in the hospital enjoying his work with his medical students, interns and residents. Every night in December is an Advent night on station, and so we see our partners in this Kijabe work more frequently. It is a time of joy!

THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING US! WE COULD NOT DO IT WITHOUT YOU.

Donate to the Work in Kenya
Will is busy in the hospital celebrating his new role as the head of department in Internal Medicine. Actually, celebration may not be the right word, but he is glad that he can help in the hospital by trying to care for patients well, teaching the interns and medical students, and improving quality medicine and education in general.
David is a Junior this year. Only 18 months until he leaves home for good. We can tell that he is getting ready to be on his own. He enjoys the travel that living in East Africa allows us to do, and he has a gift for interacting with people of many different cultures. To say we are proud of him would be an understatement. He would want you to check out his fun video blog at David Caire Vlogs.
Sarah is in 6th grade. We love watching her dance, make crazy faces, and play her instruments. When we travel she will talk about missing the piano, and she is taking up the saxophone this year. Her smile and joy brings happiness into the home, and she fills the role of the youngest child to perfection.
Annie is soon to be 14. She is always willing to try anything, jumping in with enthusiasm. She is participating in field hockey, is playing trombone in the band, and is beginning to learn the viola. She loves her friends, and her insight into the way others think and feel is beyond her years. She is a real go getter!
Peter is a freshman in high school and he has many interests. He loves Bonsai trees, guitar, and trumpet. This year his musical abilities have expanded as he is in concert band, jazz band, and choir. His afternoons are a never ending quest to try and grow the perfect bonsai tree, which to this point has been a bit of a fruitless effort. But practice makes perfect. We enjoy his dry wit, and we are excited for his high school years.
I, Allison, love my jobs as a mom of tween- and teenagers, missionary in Kenya, and Spanish teacher at RVA. Next term will be a busy one as I add teaching a term-length literature course and prepare to take a group of students to Spain. God has answered my prayers for community and Bible study this year-- we have a new Sunday night small group and I'm able to do BSF with an online group.
Sometimes when you are asked if you will take a picture, and you think it means can you take a picture for us, what it actually means is can we take a picture with you. I finally begged out after about 100 photos had been snapped. This is about 1/3 of the group who were in the photos.
