Ten baptisms

A travel blog entry by danielharper

Then when it came into view, I saw a large tree on the near bank. This would be good shade for us during at least part of the ceremony. I also saw a few logs flung over the stream that formed a crude ...

It looked so deep that I thought the engine might come to a stop. Thankfully it didn't, but we did lurch into the hole and bottom out ...

Kayanza - Field Visits

A travel blog entry by hasemeyer


... who gets the pot rotates weekly, so the group benefits each member. There is also another savings plan used in which group can pool money and choose to loan money to any one member if they feel the person can pay it back. Interest rates and payback period are determined by the group. Ryan, Sarah, Elias, and a friendly local Hope employee named Belize, took us out to Kayanza, a 2-hour drive into the hills. The plan was to visit ...
