THIS IS OUR YOUNGEST GRANDSON - Liam - son of Michael and Janet Green. Liam was three last year, on 28th June. Looks a real lad! His parents are kept busy making sure he keeps out of mischief at home. Handsome guy! The hat gives him a certain character between that of an American gangster and Frank Sinatra - hmm. Can't be Mike that it all stems from, for he is such a quiet and unassuming person - must be his Mother our pretty daughter in law - pretty AND very mischievous person. Well we have envied them both as they have watched him grow and develop into a real boy and personality. And he looks a real 'winner', full of beans, and brain as well we hope. We have not seen him in the flesh for over a year. Well we do not get to SEE many of our grandchildren! But last year we had the joy of having our eldest Granddaughter, Tonia who came to visit for a while last year with Steven Green, her Dad! Tonia will soon be entering University. We also hope, perhaps later this year, to may be have our Eldest Grandson, Eric, Tonia's brother to also visit. We are proud of them both, and our only regret is, that due to the distance we are apart, and our own rare visits to the UK, we have not been able to be as close to them as we would have wanted. Both kids to be proud of, and we thank God for them. Rachel and John-finney Joseph, our daughter Elizabeth. and Prem Joseph's children we are also missing. Liz was able to visit for a week last year which was a special joy, but she was unable to take the children out of School to come with her. Nevertheless we rejoice to know that God has watched, and watches over all of them - sons. daughters, children and grandchildren. We give all the Thanks to Jesus.
Perhaps a little unfairly (for the rest) we have been able to see our son Daryl, and Carols children grow up right here with us since they were born. Jessy, now in College in Nairobi pursuing a Course in Engineering, Becky just finishing her 1V Form in Secondary School this year, and Jeremy in his 8th Primary Year. Certainly a little compensation for being so far from the rest of our children.
AND just this week our youngest granddaughter, Abigail became THREE years old on the 17th March. She and her Mum, our daughter Helen, are living in Nairobi now, but we do get to see them during School Holidays. Hope to see them both again soon for the Easter Holiday soon coming. Abigail has grown a lot and learnt a lot since they moved away to Nairobi, and we are relieved to see that God has His hand on her, and on Helen also.
I must leave you all here. I have been very busy and occupied through the week, and also a having a little problem with my tummy. Caused me to be a little fatigued by today, and I had in fact felt like not purring anything on the Blog this week - But then I couldn't resist the thought of sharing my love for our grandchildren.
At last I have been able to send the Year's 1st UPDATE - some will have it already via E-mail and others will have to wait it to arrive by Airmail sometime next week. I have enclosed a little Note for those who may have been helping us financially via Aenon Trust through the last few months. I do wish we could share the BLOG as well more frequently.
God Bless and Keep you all well and safe in the Name of Jesus.
John, Esther and Daryl Green
