Kenya 2012

Last year my husband and I had an opportunity to travel to Kenya with 41 (!) other people for 2 weeks! Traveling in such a large team was a new experience for me, and I was surprised how much I enjoyed that aspect. Sure the lines are longer, everything is louder, but you are never lonely.

The trip itself was incredible. We got loved on by hundreds of darling children all day, everyday. I just wish I had more hands to hold them with.

We spent the first day touring the Pangani Center where recently my friend and sister in-law-in-law, Dianna started a beauty school. She is currently back in Nairobi at the Pangani Center preparing her girls to graduate!

During our trip we were able to watch men and women from the slums go to skills workshops such as, sewing class, jewelry making, and most recently the beauty school to help transform their lives. We were able to see how monthly sponsorship of a child ensures an education, food and love in a safe and secure environment. We saw men and women baptized in front of their entire community proclaiming Jesus as their savior. We took VBS into a remote are of the Maasai Mara and told them about Jesus for the first time!

It was a blessing to go with Global Outreach from Crossroads Church.

Welcome

Hello blogging world.

I’m a creative soul with a desperate need to travel and meet as many people as possible. This is the start to what will hopefully be a┬áblog capturing my life while I travel, craft, eat, adventure and grow. I have been married to a humble, gentle, sweet spirited man for 2 1/2 years and I can honestly say it’s been the best 2 1/2 years of adventure I’ve ever had!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to see more of you as we adventure together!

Love,

Ellice
