We had one last ‘see you soon’ breakfast with the Yenokidas and packed up the car to make our way to Carol!
This woman is simply amazing.
She has also made a serious imprint on our lives. Not only is she the auntie to our kiddos, but she is someone we strive to be. She worked for 34 years in Kenya and we were blessed enough to be a part of those last few years before she retired off the field.
Carol was the first to introduce us to authentic and delicious Indian food.
She was the one I always knew I could speak my mind to and get a true, genuine response. She showed me where to find the best chicken tikka in town and I showed her where to find some pretty good ice cream. (pink striped roof!)
She has taught both Sean and I how to love unconditionally and pray without ceasing.
We miss being able to randomly show up at Carols home and share a cup of chai or coffee together. She truly is a woman of hospitality and encompasses the word fellowship.
To be in her home again was an answered prayer.
In reality, we are not sure how many more moments we get like this with everyone we are seeing. Sadly, distance separates us all, so to have a few days together again with Carol was pure bliss.
We got to be in her home, reminisce on Mombasa and our friends, attend church with her and meet her church family and friends. Then we ended our time by eating at a local Indian restaurant for lunch. The food was wonderful, but even better sharing it with Carol.
Thank you, Carol for loving us, continually teaching us, and always praying for us.
You may be in Portland now, but know, your spirit is alive and well in Mombasa as I am daily reminded of you through people, places and even flavors of food.
