Meeting Jo

What a wonderful treat I had when I visited Kenya recently. I got to meet a blogging buddy and she is a treasure.

I met my blogger friend Jo in Nakuru Town when she and her husband made a pit stop on their way back from Nairobi to Kimwarer Valley. I was so grateful because it would have been a pity to be so close to her and yet not meet her. Through God's design and Jo's perseverance we were indeed able to meet and see one another in the flesh.

This is Jo!

Our meeting was brief but long enough for me to sense the special treasure that Jo is. She really is a delightful, gentle spirit.  Jo and her husband hail from South Africa but are currently living in the Kimwarer, Valley near Eldoret, Kenya.  I had a moment to introduce her to the three boys I was treating to lunch and they were thrilled.  In case, you don't know Jo yet, please see her wonderful blog here.

From left to right:  Martin, Hillary Joseph and Moses. You can read more about them here.
Thank you Jo for making time to meet with me. I hope we get another chance to talk in depth some day, Lord willing.

  1. I LOVE this.  I am actually hoping to get to Joburg after a mission trip and hope to meet a blog buddy!  I am always amazed at how small the world is.

    Your blog is so interesting. You live in such an exotic country, too. I've been following Jo's blog for some time, so it's nice to meet another blogger from Africa.

  5. Hi Joyful - I've been following Memorable Meanders for a while, I think probably picked up from your blog.  What a lovely visit you've had, and I so enjoyed seeing the picture of the two of you.

  6. Dedene, thank you so much for your visit and your comment. If you come again, please know the name of your blog so I can pay you a visit. Unfortunately this comment program doesn't let me know that information. I love writing about Kenya but I'm not actually living there. I live on the west coast of Canada :-)

  9. Ah Penny, what a sweet blog. It was such a blessing to meet you, even though short. And to meet the "boys" who are now on my prayer list - I pray they continue to walk in the Light and make something of their lives under dire circumstances. Bless you dearest Penny. We will meet again, for sure. (((Hugs))) Jo
