Hey guys! Thanks for checking out this page!

Last summer I went on the Kenya Global Project. In the two months my time was divided between Nairobi (the capital city of Kenya) and a school in Kwale. God used the experiences I had in Kenya to open my eyes to the needs of his children all over the world. He is continuing to open up opportunites for me to serve him.

Unfortunatly keeping up with a blog is not my forte... and as soon I we returned to the States I forgot about it. Now, I'm going to start it up again and hopefully keep it up! You're welcome to bug me if I seemed to be slacking on posting:)

First post from kenya!

so we're here! after twenty some-odd hours on a plane:)

We're staying at Watakefuwote (i think that is how you spell that) which is a catholic center outside of a town called ngong. The first day we had a couple sessions and then went down into ngong to talk to people and experience the place. after buying some essentials, like laundry soap and toilet paper, we were able to wander the market. the kids are so cute! and i recieved my first proposal, (then i ran away) so it must have been a good day!

Day two we went to the mathare valley slum and then we visited to the sanctuary of hope childrens home. The fact that people live in a place like mathare valley is unbelievable and heart breaking. it was good to see the sanctuary of hope afterwards, to see children who had been rescued and play with them.

Today is a day in nairobi to experience the market and city life a little bit, and get more comfortable using the little bit of swahilli we know.

Well, that's about it...
thanks again for your support and prayers
and please keep praying for boldness to talk to people and compassions to love them well
... and anything else you can think of:)
