A few years ago, anticipating an empty nest, they began to look for opportunities to serve Friends overseas and were invited to work with Friends United Meeting in East Africa. For the last 3 years they have been living in Kenya and working as Programme Officers in the Africa Ministries Office. Their work focuses on the Project Partners of FUM and facilitating communication and relationships between Friends in North America and in East Africa.
