"Today was such a life-changing experience for me. It opened my eyes once again to how much we take for granted but still complain. Those kids were so overwhelmed to see visitors and to meet new people. I felt like I was a celebrity or something. We all used our celebrity status though to go in and preach about God in the public schools. How great that was!" -- Brandi Cadamore
"Being in Kenya has been a blessing
"Today we were in a small village called Banana. It certainly was an incredible experience visiting the local schools. The children were prepared for our arrival the team watched in amazement as hundreds of students came rushing at us! There were three schools and this happened all three times. As we all took turns speaking to the groups, we reminded them to rely on Jesus to guide them through the coming years, to stay in school and to study hard. The older children were encouraged to make good choices with their bodies as they move into their teen years. My favorite part of today? Those beautiful faces! There is no photo that can capture the hope and joy seen in them.
"Our team has been incredible! We work hard, cry hard, and laugh hard every day! John is an excellent task master and has chosen our experiences to cover our view of a great Lord!" - Marsha Merryman
We are not sure what kind of Internet access we will have on safari, so you may not hear from us for a few days. We are off to the Masai Mara tomorrow, a four-hour drive, leaving at 7 AM so we can get there in time for lunch. Then we will do a game drive tomorrow and Dr. Stanko has us primed for great things. We promise to share pictures when we can.
Till next time, keep praying! (Make sure you click on the pictures to read the captions.)
