Look Who We Found!

Big hugs!
She mostly wanted to see my camera.
2008 and 2011

WOW, what a surprise today! Today we ran into one of the kids we sponsor. We’ve sponsored Millicent since 2008. We met her in 2008, Patrick visited her in 2011, and now today! Hannah has the day off next Friday so we are planning to introduce them for the first time AND we’ll all meet our other kid, Francis.

The best part for Patrick is that Millicent wants to be a Photographer! She is studying photography and was very interested in his camera!

Special Needs in the Slums

14993446_528725703993481_9100093477088600597_nToday was a wonderful and very difficult day in the slums. Patrick and I have been blessed to be doing a few home visits in the Slums.

Today we went to visit a single mother and her son who has Cerebral Palsy. The mother is loving and strong and does everything she can to provide for her family. I’m so grateful for Amon who works with the disability program who visits this family often to show Jesus’s love to this family and offer encouragement and support for this beautiful family.

We are excited for our teammate Nikki to come back soon. She is currently raising support to return and serve in the disability program at Missions of Hope.  Support Nikki!

New Job Orientation

Funny Story: When we were leaving one school, Katie was trying to connect with an elementary aged boy. Since he held a paper with some Swahili words on it, Katie pointed out some of the words she knew and translated them into English. A few moments later we found out the boy was taking an exam testing his Swahili vocabulary. Oops. #MissionaryFail
