I’ve been dealing with some very important business in Kenya for the last 48 hours.
There’s a new man in my life.
It’s obviously been very exhausting work.
I introduced you to Maureen more than 5 years ago, the day I met her in a Kenyan slum and my life was turned upside down. She was a part of my undoing. Wrecked. Little did I know she would become the courageous Kenyan woman who would partner with me to help rescue impoverished and oppressed pregnant teens in her country.
You joined Maureen and I four and half years ago and believed in an impossible dream to start Mercy House.
You donated money to save her mother’s life and you grieved with us when we lost her..
And now . . .
Before I catch you up on (or introduce you to) the amazing progress of the maternity homes Mercy House supports here in Kenya this week, or introduce you to our young pregnant residents, or the dozens and dozens of women being employed by Fair Trade Friday in the countries we are visiting…
I had to introduce you to my newest love.
I’m sure you understand.
