Welcome one and all to our weekly exploration of the world of online videos, checking out anything and everything having to do with the Plain people. This week we have a few neat offerings, so let's get right to it!
AMISH IN KENYA?: No, there are not buggies clattering down the roads of Kenya, but there are people with names like Wagler and Troyer living simply and faithfully. The Beachy Amish Mennonite church is more modern and more mission-oriented, so you do find enclaves overseas. I was unaware there was a church in Kenya. Click here to watch a short video clip.
MONTEZUMA GEORGIA: Yoder's Restaurant is one of the places featured in my Williams Guide to Amish Country. In this short video clip you can get an actual first-hand look at the food. Yum! Montezuma is one of the few places in deep Dixie where you can really experience Plain culture. It is not an Amish community,but a conservative Beachy Amish Mennonite settlement.

MENNONITE BARN-RAISINGS: While more rare than they used to be, barn-raisings still do occur in Plain communities. Click here to see a few minute clip of a Mennonite barn-raising. Enjoy the sound of hammers going to work!
