Connie Adams from Heartland Friends Meeting, Wichita, Kansas, provided scripture lessons of the parables using the Godly Play system. The children responded well to this system which uses objects as aids to tell the story. After the story, the children held each physical symbol of the story and they showed an ability to repeat the symbols within the stories. They learned that God, like the Good Shepherd, takes good care of us and that we should take care of our neighbors.
Michael Jay, West Richmond Friends Meeting, Richmond, Indiana, also volunteered in the kitchen, providing supper and some traditional Kenyan food for the final day. The Kenyan food included ugali, the national Kenyan dish, which is a corn porridge; sukuma wiki which is stir-fried tomatoes, onions, and collard greens; chapati, a type of flat bread; and a vegetable and beef stew. The Kenyan meal received high praise.
