The tree that fell over the river during the rains before March was pushed into the middle of the current over a week ago so people no longer could cross the river from Endana to the Mission. Here is what people were doing:

Tree bridge

As you can see it is a bit precarious to say the least, but people were thanking God that the tree fell because the Uasonyiro River is too deep and fast to cross with all the rain we’ve been having. Instead of just crossing the tree bridge, people now have to go all the way to Debatas and then walk, or if lucky, catch a lift for the almost 10 kilometers from there to the Mission.

Tree bridge

So now the leadership in Endana has dropped another tree across the river just north of the Mission to serve as a bridge. The Mission had no involvement in this action. It demonstrates however, how badly we need a proper bridge like the one I hear is planned by Engineers Without Borders.
