This last week I was out of town visiting family in Alaska. When I came back to Portland, there in my mailbox was a letter from Kenya. My dear Rafiki, Dorcus Simion, wrote me a lovely letter introducing herself as a 45-year-old mother of three from Mombasa. What a great feeling to connect with this woman from Kenya who is learning to write and learning to empower herself. And receiving hand written letters is such a joy.
