A Day In The Life….

I have gotten a lot of questions about what life is like in Kenya. So I’ve dedicated a post to answering every possible question you may have! Here we go… HYGIENE: In the bush of Africa: -Showers don’t exist. Therefore, we go without a “shower” for up to two weeks at a time. Water supply is very low in a lot of places so we get about half a pail of water a day to do as we please (I usually wash my face, hands, feet and leave the rest of my body for baby wipes) We wash our hair once a week if we have enough water (braids and headbands are a girls best friend...

Story Time!

When doing hut to hut evangelism, we are often invited into the hut to pray over the home and the family living there. It was a few days before we left the first tribe (Tangi Ta Tu) and we were told that there was a very sick woman in the next hut who heard we were there and begged us to come pray for her. We made our way to her hut and soon realized that it was much too small a house for all of us to enter. I volunteered to go in along with one of my team mates. We walked into the house and it was pitch black; I literally couldn't see my own hand held out in front of me. I used my ears...

The Simple Life

Hello from the middle of nowhere Africa!  And when I say middle of nowhere, I mean it.  There is absolutely nothing out here.  A lot of open fields, few trees, very spread out houses, no modern civilization at all.  We’re here in a village in Kenya called Tangeytatue, where many people of the Masai tribe live.  We’ve been doing door to door evangelism and going to schools talking to and playing with the children.  The people here have an amazing love for the Gospel.  Members of the church are willing to walk miles to come to church on Sundays. ...

Bring on Kenya!

So, training camp is almost over!  Tonight is the last night of training camp and we leave bright and early tomorrow morning.  As much as I'm not excited about the almost 30 hours of travel to get to Kenya, I'm equally as excited to see Kenya! When we first arrived at training camp, I was a little agitated to be here, honestly.  It was all a bit anticlimactic to me.  I got all excited and pumped up to go on this great adventure and left my family… only to go to Georgia for a few days.  I was like, seriously?… because I signed up for Kenya, not Georgia. ...

Serving

In these days it seems that God has put us in the darkest situations so that we may demonstrate His dominion. It is like a jewler who places his dimond on a black back drop so it may be seen clearer. So it is with us in this dark world that we may display His glourious body the church and its people. where sin abounded grace abounded much more (Rom 5:20). Luke 13:20-21 "To what shall i liken the Kingdom of God? it is like leaven which a women took and hid in three measures of meal till it was all leavened. Leaven: an element that produces an altering or transforming influence. The kingdom...

Shout out to the Parents and friends

     I hope by now your kids have told you who I am but if not; I am one of the leaders. I hope you've been enjoying the stories they write and the growth they've all been walking through. I wanted to just thank you all for allowing them to come to Africa. You letting go a little for this is allowing them space to figure out who God is calling them to be. They have taken on every challenge set forth and have best represented Christ to people here. I don't know from experiace that letting your kid go to another country is hard BUT I do know that it's...
