Debbie & Dexter's wedding

Last weekend we had the privilege of going to Nairobi for a wedding.

We also had the privilege of staying with the Creans. Sharon and Pete (New Zealanders/Aussies) are working in Kenya with Afrilift.

they cooked a magnificent dinner on our arrival

On Saturday we headed over to Parklands Baptist Church for Dexter and Debbie's wedding. We know Dexter from Australia... and now he has married a Kenyan. Small world.

 Dexter & Andrew catch up before the service

We were also delighted to see Kepu, Lyn and Kara again. Also friends from Australia. Kepu was best man.

After the wedding we went back to the Crean's place, and then headed out to enjoy the bright lights of a shopping centre... and some 'fast food'.

*Puppy was taken to a vet who gave her all of her shots. The vet is now looking out for an owner for her. I was very teary about letting her go.
