Kenya Update

Some of you may have heard on the news this morning that there has been a shooting at the “Westgate Premier Shopping Mall” in Nairobi, Kenya.  I want to assure you that the team is safe and hours away from Nairobi and this mall.  Last weekend the team traveled into Nairobi for church and they went to the Galleria Mall during their day-trip.  At this time the team will not be returning to Nairobi until further notice. I have spoken with the team leaders several times already this morning and the girls are handling the news well.  The team is spending time today...

Our Kenya Team Has Arrived

Madison, one of our leaders for our Fall, Kenya Passport Team has called and the team has arrived safely in Kenya.   The team will spend the next couple of days orientating themselves to this beautiful African land and the ministry that they get to be involved with these next three months.  Once they get settled in, there will be some blogs coming our way! I cannot wait to hear first-hand all that God is doing in this team and this country.  Please be praying with me as they settle into their new "home."     Thanks, Katie Swan, Passport Field...

Safe Arrival!

Sara, one of the team leaders for Kenya just called and the team has arrived safely in Kenya!  They are currently in route to a hotel where they will spend the night before leaving on a bus for their ministry site tomorrow morning. Once there, they will spend some time orientating to the new culture and ministry that will cover their days for the two months ahead.  There should be some blogs rolling out over the next week as they get into a routine and find Internet.   Thanks for all the prayers for this team!

God’s Not Finished With Me Yet

Now two months into this trip, God has blessed our team abundantly both in personal walks with Christ and with ministry. In the six weeks we've spend at the three different tribes, we've seen 100 people saved: 17 in the Maasai tribe, 16 in Kikuyu, and 67 in Pokot. With just one month of the trip remaining, we've had “double fruitfulness” prophesied over our team. Though we all realize this last month will fly by, God's not finished with us yet. Amazing things are coming to our team! Even as we head home, I know God will continue to use us all for His glory. For...

news from the middle of nowhere

Hello family and friends of team Kenya, I wanted to let you know that I heard from the team leaders yesterday and give you a little update here on how the team is doing. The team is officially in the middle of nowhere in Central Kenya.  An 8 hour bus ride from Kijabe turned into an 11 hour journey.  I'm sure there are lots of funny stories to come about that transportation day.  The leaders had to hike 30 minutes up a hill to stand in the middle of a field in order to have barely enough phone signal to talk to me.  We were only able to talk for about 10 minutes and during...
