Update on Aunt Ketty
WOW, what a journey we are on! Some good time has passed since we last gave you an update on Aunt Ketty Okoth and her progress. It was 30th May when she finished her first round of treatments and arrived back here in Kasana. What an experience for her as she was able to fly from Nairobi to Entebbe–her first time in an airplane! Flying was much better for her health and allowed her to…Learn More
Life Changers: Books
I don’t know about you but I love to read and I often have 1 or 2 books on the go at the same time. One of the requirements of Investment Year is that the students read 18 books through the year (Yes you read right, 18 books!). I love that at the beginning of the year we introduce this part of the programme and the look of disbelief, fear and the comments from the…Learn More
Kulikayo, Aunt Ketty!
Around here, you might here the phrase kulikayo (welcome back) several times on any given day. Welcome back home; welcome back to the office; welcome back to primary, welcome back to the classroom. No matter how near or far one has traveled, kulikayo is always an appropriate greeting upon one’s return.
Friday, May 30th the New Hope Uganda family welcomed Aunt Ketty Okoth back to Kasana after her one-and-a-half months of chemotherapy and radiation treatment…Learn More

We have spent a decent amount of time at the Kenya Cancer Center which is affiliated with the MP Shah Hospital this week. And it’s been a blessing. It’s also stirred a little of my heart…and truth be told more than a little. Yesterday, as I stood with A. Ketty in the hallway of the radiotherapy area. My heart did a little pause as I looked up and saw signs noting that there…Learn More
In Nairobi with Aunt Ketty
Just wanted to give you all an update on A. Ketty. After taking the 11pm bus from Kampala to Nairobi, we arrived about mid-day Tuesday. Thankful for the ways in which Jesus was present. When we arrived at the bus station Monday night, they asked A. Ketty for her two extra passport pictures … which we were never told she needed. God took care of it. A. Ketty had an extra expired identification card in…Learn More
Finding a Rhythm
Walking along the road. One foot in front of the other.
Each step creating its own “one, two, three, four…”
As I travel to church on a Sunday morning, the neighboring church sounds the commencement drums. “one & ah two & 3 e & ah four &…”
There seems to be a constant rhythm all around. Either with a person’s hands, feet, even our very heartbeats have our own rhythm.
In some of the younger Primary classes,…Learn More
Heading to Nairobi
It’s early Friday morning… a candle is lit close to me casting a shadow inside the darkened house. The birds are singing in the day and as I look out the windows, the sun is beginning to break away the darkness outside. It’s early in the morning. And the day is just beginning. A new day. And a day that is known by my God. It’s been a month full of… life. And while there…Learn More
