This was the last visit to Kaptama before heading home (about 2 hours outside of town). I asked these ladies to hold up their books so I could take a picture for you all. These Foundation Course books were not given to them for free. They purchased them with their own hard work. You can tell a student is truly committed when… (more…)

Let the Drills Begin

Only five days left until I am home bound! My students and I have been studying proper use of the chalk board over this past week. I don’t know whether to liken our last week of class to practice or military drills, but I have never seen a group of students working so hard. I hope to have them well seasoned… (more…)

Students in Sikhendu

I am proud to announce that she is… (more…)

Words cannot express what transformation God has done in my heart over this past year. I have truly seen the lost found and the broken healed, and in the process been healed from a lot… (more…)

Laini Moja

If you remember the post I made when Lisa and I took the orphans shopping, you will probably recognize this place. It is the clothing market on Laini Moja street. It is part of Kitale’s open air market (between the dried fish market and the carpentry open air market). Buried somewhere in this long tunnel of second hand American clothing is a little… (more…)
