Day 7: Fun, finance and feeding (giraffes)

Posted: 20 August 2019

Final day of the CLEAR conference in Nairobi – time flies when you are having fun!

We started with wonderful worship from the Mozambique team playing our favourite tune, Alpha & Omega. The devotion was then given by Daniel from Uganda. Mhairi spoke about financial sustainability and there were strong group discussions within the country groups exploring this. After lunch we led worship, then Hannah gave an encouraging word. Mark led us in communion and we had a time of prayer for each country.

With the hard work over we ran off quickly to catch the giraffes at the Giraffe Centre which closed at 5pm. With classic Kenyan jams, we then made it just in time at 4.50pm to feed Daisy – a total beauty! One of the taxis was late and they missed Daisy! Cue some tears… but luckily with some giraffe whispering from Hannah, we got her back for a photoshoot and final feed!

We then had a relaxed last dinner back at the guesthouse and everyone went to bed early to pack and prepare for the journey to Mombasa!
