Friends & Family,
25+ hours of traveling, 5 movies, 8 airplane meals, 3 continents, and 4 awkward naps later, I have made it safely to Kenya- my future homeland!
I am with an incredible team from World Concern, ONE, and OneDaysWages. We are here to gather stories from the field and learn how we can continue to empower and bring sustainable opportunities to those that we serve.
As we travel around Kenya, and possibly through Somalia and South Sudan, I ask for your prayers for safety, health, humility, and the willingness and openness to grow both as individuals and in work that we do.
I cannot wait to show you pictures, videos, and interviews of the work of World Concern and its beautiful beneficiaries. This is truly a beautiful continent and I am so blessed to have the opportunity to live and work here in the next few months.
Thank you so much for all of your support and prayers. Because of you, and your willingness to partner with the work I will be doing with World Concern, I am with three incredible people training to be World Concern’s Africa Communication Liaison.
I will update you as I am able- but be looking for many updates when I return!
Much love to you from across the globe.
P.S. here is a blog from one of my amazing team members. Blessed to work with and learn from people such as him. http://eugenecho.com/2012/07/21/we-cant-do-everything-but-we-have-to-do-something-why-im-in-the-horn-of-africa/
