The 5th GOYA team has landed!

The 5th GOYA Team has landed in Nairobi! I recieved a text message from Shawn Parker, who is manning the GOYA international phone at around 2:24am CST stating: "Flight landed xtra stretch room on flight all is well" and "Got r bags, with pastor, ready for the rest of week. this is great"

So they have arrived safe and sound. By this time (11am CST on June 11, 2009) is should be late in the night in Nairobi or really early AM on July 12...which means they have experienced one full day in Nairobi. So they should be relatively familiar with what's going on in mitumba and familiarizing themselves with the GOYA/REM staff.

If I receive any more updates from the team I'll be sure to repost it to the blog. Otherwise, I hope they are able to make it to the Cyber Cafe, down the street from The Y, where they are staying.

Keep the real hard work begins!
