Just Check'in In...

Just check'in to share a quick update –

After living in the chaos of separating, packing and moving and packing some more, we are on our way to USA – with Henry. It feels surreal to write these words; after 2 years of “unknown” for this little orphaned boy (who’s grown tall) and consistent ministry with those living in extreme poverty, we are more than ready for furlough. We will miss our good friends in Kenya but we are EXCITED to see family and friends back home.

Serving in Kenya for 5 years reaped beautiful fruit of transformation. Culturally relevant discipleship programs built healthy relationships. Those living in poverty now serve in their communities. Victimized widowed mamas feel empowered to raise their children. Clean water is shared with the gospel message in villages and the slums. A functioning Resource Center equips the local church to biblically minister to those in need. Only God can take a seed of a vision and cause it to mature into meaningful reality.

If you’d like us to share some of our experiences of seeing God moving while living among the least, please be free to contact us and we can set aside some time to visit.  We can also present at churches, small groups and organizations. Below is our itinerary:
  • March 28th - 31, Washington DC.
  • April 1 -7 Buffalo, NY
  • April 8 – 17 Columbus, Ohio
  • April 17 -21 Driving to Colorado
  • April 22 Staying in Pagosa Springs (but can still travel to share)
Our time frame for returning to Kenya In not scheduled yet, but it will probably be in late December.

Please pray for us:
  • International travel with Henry -  a first for this boy!
  • Continued health and provision. (Taleah's still dealing with a painful tooth ache.)
  • Continued unity and effectiveness for the ministry in Kisumu.
The Resource Center Advisory Board, Management Team and some of the mamas.

We certainly appreciate all the prayers, support and encouragement.
As we say here in Swahili, “Asante sana. Nema shakuru. Mungu akubariki sana.”
“Thanks you so much. We are grateful. God bless you so much.”
