Just got word that my Grandfather passed away yesterday afternoon. Because of lack of internet and difficult cell connections, I wasn't able to get word till now. News like this is never easy and never easy to be far from home and loved ones. Despite being half way across the world, I'm praising God for my Grandfather's life. The night before I left to come to Kenya I spent sitting on the bed in my grandfather's room while he was in his recliner. We were watching football since it was Thanksgiving. Before he went to bed that night, we said goodbye. I think we both knew it may be our last time seeing each other but was hoping it would not be. I will never forget the last thing he ever said to me. "I'm so proud of you for all you've done and who you will be come. Enjoy seeing the world!"
Sending love to my family from all the way across the world. Granddad, this trip's for you.
