May God continue to bring you rest
and re-creation during this glorious summer season. For those on
vacation, have a safe and wonderful trip and come back to us soon. We
Fr. Rob & Mo. Lyn
Sukuma Wiki is Swahili
for "to push or stretch the week" and also the name of a dish made of
greens which Kenyans prepare to help them make it through the
week when food is scarce. Father Arthur Toro, who spent some time here
at Emmanuel before being assigned to Church of the Holy Communion in
Gardena, is from Kenya. And so he has named his plot here in our
community garden Sukuma Wiki. The orange basket you see in the picture
has been attached to his plot so that other gardeners may drop off any
excess crops for Arthur and his family. We are so blessed to call Fr.
Arthur and his wife Jane our friends. Here, in part, is a note we
received from him this week:
"We harvest our greens
every week to 'push us for a week.' To the people of St Emanuel (sic)
you all are good people, pass my love to them all."
