Pictures of the Day: Kenya 2012

After a very smooth (but extremely long 24 hours), we arrived in Kenya to a beautiful reunion between Maureen and our family. We hit the ground running and started early today at church watching ALL eight of our beautiful girls get baptized in water! Stunning.

I wouldn’t have missed this for all the jet lag in the world.

And then we did a ton of this:

with eight of these:

We shared delicious meals together and the girls opened up their gifts for themselves and their babies from you!

It was pretty much a perfect first day on the other side of the globe.

    Sniff, sniff. Call me a cry baby if you will, but I had tears just looking at those photos. What sweetness God can create out of the most unlikely of circumstances.

    So beautiful! I hope the whole trip is just as blessed.
    Do you or Maureen or any of the girls know of a Kenyan singer named Kambua? We worked together at a camp in North Carolina in 2004, and now she’s apparently a big star in her home country! I’ve been wondering if it would be a valuable introduction, if there’s anything she could do to help raise money or awareness for Mercy House…
