Comin Home

Well, it’s the last blog for me.  Enjoyin debrief and tryin to remember everything God has taught me on the trip.  I could stay here for another two months, but I’m ready for home.  I can’t wait to see everyone when I get to the airport!  Especially my Aub.  😀      I’m really proud of our team.  We led alot of souls to faith in Christ and we sowed countless seeds around Nairobi, Kiserian, Isinya, Mathari, and many other places..;.  and I’m sure I spelled most of these cities the wrong way.  Our group has...

less than a week

once again, not much time to blog, but i just wanted to say that this will probably be my last blog. we did some shopping in open markets this past week and it was one of the most stressful things i’ve done. there are no set prices, you just bargain for whatever you want, with no idea how much things should cost and with a different currency. it was interesting. please don’t be upset if i don’t get you anything. i just couldn’t handle it anymore. haha! we are running the services at ICC tomorrow morning and next week is debrief. we are going to another hostel that has...

Maasai Warrior Wannabe

Mambo!!!  So this week I don’t really have anything planned to blog about this time around.  In explanation of the title, I now have just about everything I need to be a Maasai warrior…. minus the major skills and ability to speak Maasai and Kiswahili.  From that I have to say, bargaining is sooo much fun.  The past two days we have gone to the market to get little nick nacks for family and friends ;).  On a more serious topic I feel like I should talk about my growth in my relationship with the Lord.  Since I have been on this trip I have really spent...
