Life is settling into a rhythm here. School, homework, meals, domestic chores, singing, skullery, and skullduggery. Here’s a little look at some pysical activities one fine late afternoon. You might want to do some stretching before you look so you don’t strain something.

If you see Jack LaLane…tell him hi.

I think that “one of life’s necessities” still needs a hoop and net, Dave! Hope you’ve got a ball to go with it!

Hey there and Happy Thanksgiving, Bunky.
Whenever a Red Rhino email pops up, I am thrilled!
.I am forever tickled by your witty, telling captions, synched with the shots of home, small fries in action, and R R/ Kenyan family team..
You never cease to amaze me with your tireless, loving work.
“Every new child brings the message that god is not discouraged of man”. Tagore.
Giving great thanks and praise.
Be well, happy now.

Ahh David–I love seeing all the photos of the work you are doing there with the charming children in their new schoolhouse. Gives me hope for the future!

Should we just call you Coach Dave for now on , because I know who’s going to be holding court daily. Perhaps the next Dikembe might be right B-4 your eyes. By the looks on everybody’s face it looks like you and your team have accomplished what is needed all around the world ( the taking in and educating of our young ). I’m sure you’ve heard of Greg Mortensen,( Three cups of Tea ) . Listened to him speak in Modesto Sat. and it was nice to hear that the military and people in higher places are taking notice and understanding that it is education of the young and not guns that will win the hearts of the people of Afganistan. Thanks to you, and everyone else who has taken on the task of educating the youth around the world. Let me know what you think of CAI ( Central Asia Inst.)

God has been very good to us all. And as you rehab your knee I hope you have a chance to reflect on how much of an impact you have had on the lives of many folks here who still as after you. Your prayers keep us all going, and now the kids keep us chasing…they’re not easy to keep up with!!
Happy Thanksgiving wishes to Tim, Joe, Ali, Alicia, you, my brother, and of course, Uncle Kayla.

We have hoops. We have nets. We have beautiful indoor/outdoor b-balls. The perfect spheres.
And soon we may have a ten years and under world-beater traveling team. Who knows.
Keep the Capital straight,

Once again the positive energy that rushes out of you reaches us here. Thanks for that. We’re all lifted up by your hope and spirit.
David and All

I’m glad that you get a burst of hope from the kids here. They are our hope, for the future and for now. They need us and we need them. In every way.
Love to Richard and the family,
david saysNovember 23, 2010 at 11:18 pm
Yes, I’ve read Mortensen’s book. Or more accurately, I read most of it before it mysteriously disappeared…I probably only had two cups. What an amzing guy and a hurricane of energy.
I need an assistant coach for the RROP Future Olympic BBall team. I know you have some time on your hands…
Lace ’em up!
Martin saysNovember 25, 2010 at 1:40 am
What a bunch of happy, beautiful kids.
And I’ll bet at least one or two of them have that classic Kenyan stride, like the guy who blew by us outside that dusty pub in Machakos.
david saysNovember 25, 2010 at 9:22 pm
Not revealed yet who the runners are, but what is clear is that each one can make a lot of other people run…around trying to keep up with them. Lots of little vortexes of pure energy.
Your pals at the Wayside Pub send a dusty habari ako.

Dear Dave: I have been wondering if the children are getting any Christian teachings. Do they have services of some sort as I am sure there is not a catholic church nearby. I do hope you are giving them some teachings somehow.
It is great to see the many happy faces of these kids in just a few months. They
seem so much more confident. Thanks, God is good!! Carol
david saysDecember 4, 2010 at 2:36 am
It’s a good question. Yes, is the short and long answer. Very important to us. They pray everyday together. Get read bible stories every evening, and other stuff also.
There is, in fact, a Catholic church very near and our brood are regular attenders.
Keep us in your prayers,
