We landed in Nairobi feeling so grateful that all of our crates and luggage arrived and relieved to have made it through customs without any extra duty tax. After getting a good night’s rest at the guest house in Nairobi we bought a supply of groceries and packed up the car and headed out for our 7-hour drive home. Excited and knowing that we had much to do to get the Shelter operationally ready for our first 20 children in December, we didn’t want to waste anytime!
As most of you know, we took a leap of faith returning to Kenya with 50% of our yearly support raised. If you are reading this blog, we are in desperate need of your help! Currently, we are funded only through the month of January. As I am writing this, I remember, from when I was younger, seeing that commercial on television of the starving children in Africa, and the man pleading for help...remember that one? "The cost of a cup of coffee a day" could help feed a child! I remember seeing that commercial and my heart aching for those children back then. It saddens me to think that that same commercial could be shown today because there are STILL children without a good source of food or water, a solid house to feel safe in, or access to an education. There is still so much to be done to complete the children’s home and to bring them in. God has been so faithful in our mission journey and we are praying that he will allow us to continue the work He has put before us. We are asking that if you feel moved or prompted in anyway to help, please click here to donate.
Please know that we are incredibly grateful for all of you who have faithfully come alongside us and supported us financially and in prayer!!
