What 4WD's are Made For

A couple weeks ago Dad made a trip to the Mt. Elgon region of Kenya with Mark, a member of Central Baptist. Mark was doing research to see if the Lord would have his church do some work among the Sabaot people who live on the mountain. Three KBTC students who are Sabaot and who live on the mountain hosted them. Some awful things have happened in the Mt. Elgon region over the last several years as an indigenous guerrilla movement, the Sabaot Land Defense Force (SLDF) fought the Kenyan government over land issues. They also turned their guns and anger on to their own people, and committed numerous atrocities. It is essentially a former war zone wherein the fighting just stopped in March of this year. The Kenyan military still has a big presence there. Anyway.

Here are some pictures of the road conditions from that trip.
