Benja...



I talked to Chris today...he in Kenya, under a mosquito net, fan-blazing (more than likely). I in the church office, in a clean outfit, drinking a coffee...

He told me that Benja asked about me.
"Wapi Alice?" (Where's Alice?)

I started to cry.

He said Patricia had told Chris that ever since the day Benja went to the pool, he's been a totally different kid: happier, smiley, more talkative.

More tears.

I love, love that kid. I hope he feels that.

Crap, I'm crying. I am sure Benja is not the only little kid in Kitale asking where Alice is.
Imagine...you will see him very soon. He will be SO excited!
