Today is my last full day in Kenya! My, it’s amazing how quickly the past 6 weeks went by…
Today, the team went to a town about an hour outside Nairobi called Lamuru. In Lamuru, there is a Kenyan AG group home that we have been working with, promoting sustainable projects, helping them figure out easier ways to support their group home.
I had so much fun playing, singing, dancing, and simply hugging on the kiddos. That, is one of my favorite ways to show off my Jesus! I love interacting with kids. I love their innocence. I love their acceptance and their big-ole belly laughs.
Today was also a special day because, almost 3 months ago, my church’s children’s ministry made bracelets and necklaces for me to bring with me to give to the kids here. Today, I handed them out! Before getting out of the car, I counted, and then recounted, making sure of the number in the bag. 42 and a necklace (for a teacher). At the group home today, there was 41 kids, and one teacher! Isn’t God cool? I was hoping for enough. And there was.
The kids were so excited. It was the perfect way to spend my last full day here in Kenya!
Now, if only I could get up the courage to pack….
