Who remembers when a bunch of us hiked those (bloody!) mountains in New Zealand to raise funds to help us build a house for our girl *Elizabeth? Who also remembers when Constance Hall put up a fight to help us reach the target to finish the house? Well, we have been working very hard in Kenya

Can you imagine the tension, the excitement the disbelief at Rafiki Mwema that Constance and her family were on their way!
