On Monday I received some good news from Fr Sean. Here is an extract of what he said.
“You will be pleased to hear that we have had two good showers this month after our longest drought and, more recently, 124 days without a single drop. The first brought 34mms in less than an hour, which is very high intensity. It was badly needed but did huge damage to our roads. Travel in the wet season is a lottery in Pokot.
Thank you God, but a little less at a time will do!”
Fr Sean celebrates the golden anniversary of his ordination this year and will be back in Ireland for what he said would be a “small” celebration over 5th and 6th June with the rest of his class of which 16 remain from the original 24. He has spent 49 of the 50 years in the Missions in Kenya. Hopefully the celebration over two days will be small in the Irish sense of that word!
The last we heard from Fr David Conway the rains had not reached Barpello and the Mission had continued with its emergency food programmes.
