Hello! All of you wonderful children. This is Zelda the Zebra and I have some great stories for you! First of all Grandpa and Grandma send their love and tell you all that they miss you all so much. They can’t wait to see you again.
I was told by my friend Gabby the Goat who lives in Nakuru, that Grandpa and Grandma found a new place to meet with all their friends in the church. He says the new place is better than the old one and everyone is so happy.
It’s never too hot or too cold in Nakuru to meet outside, so every time they want to get together they meet in this nice tent.
The first Sunday they arrived at the new place, they put up their tent and everyone celebrated by dancing, waving balloons, ribbon rings and singing to God for giving them this nice piece of land to meet on. Everyone was so excited and so very grateful.
Last week Papa Tabach decided that before he came home he would go and see some of my friends in Lake Nakuru Park; that's right where I live. The first of my friends he saw was the silly baboons who always like to play in the road. Next he saw a big family of water buffaloes. He stopped to say hi, but they were afraid and started to run away.
Next he saw my family and friends drinking at our favorite drinking pond.
He got to see some giraffe’s real close up and he even was chased by a big Black Rhino called “Brutus” that lives in the park close to my home. Papa Tabach has a video of Brutus coming after them. Ask him to show you.
But the most wonderful thing that happened was when they got to see Simba our King! Not many people get to see our King because he does not like to be seen by humans.
Papa Tabach and George even got to see some of his queens resting in the grass. George and papa Tabach got out of the van and stood by the doors to take some pictures but when the king and queen looked at them, George and papa Tabach quickly got back in the van. They didn’t want to become the King’s dinner!
After papa Tabach came back to George’s house he and Chloe had to get ready to come back home. After they packed their suitcases and said goodbye, George drove them to the Airport in Nairobi and they got on a big plane to fly all the way home to Tennessee.
We were sad to see them go, but we know they missed all their family and friends so we’re are glad they are finally home. Have you seen either of them walking around the Village? Tell them Zelda said hi.
Well, I got to go. Gabby says that more of Grandpa’s friends from the Village are coming tomorrow. I don’t know how Gabby knows all these things. I think he sneaks around humans houses and listens through the doors to what they are talking about.
Grandpa and Grandma say hello and for not to forget to pray for them. They are halfway through their visit to Africa and before you know it they will be home giving out golf cart rides. They said to tell you they love and miss you tons. Me and tweeter will write you again.
Bye from Africa,
Zelda and Tweeter. Oh! Zenia says Hi too.
