I am very happy for the far that the Lord has taken me. I am fine and I hope you are fine too. The April holiday over and I am going back to school. During the holiday we visited the Nairobi National Park and we were very happy about the visit. We learned a lot in geocaching and we also enjoyed ourselves.
We were also engaged in workshops where we were taught about puberty, peer pressure, career and we were also counseled on how to deal with our fellow peers.
I hope that the Almighty God will grant us his mercies and grace as we are going back to school determined to work harder to better my results.
May God bless you for your continued support.
