Hey girls! I recently went on a mission trip to Kenya. There, we did a Vacation Bible school in the Koregosho Slums for two days. The children there live on top of a dump (pics will be up eventually) in 'houses' made out of cardboard, mud, and whatever else they can find in the dump. Most of the children live on their own because their parents have left them or are dead. These precious children get one meal a day and that is the meal the Baptist Chapel School provides for those that attend. These conditions are horrid. Words cant describe, nor can pictures truely show how bad these conditions truely are. With all of that being said, these children ALWAYS have a smile on their faces. They are always happy, nomatter what. They know God is going to take care of them and one day they will have to more problems! They praise God whether they get their physical needs or not. They praise Him simply because He is worthy! Eye opening, huh??
The next 3 days were spent in the rurals of Kenya doing a VBS litteraly in the middle of no where. These conditions were alot different. Here, they are in a major drought (as you have probably heard) and many are thirsting to death. The children there would go without clothes on and 2 year olds would walk to the church by themselves! The water they drank was brown..yet they still praised God!
God used this to convict me of so many things. 1) When I was standing, loooking out over all of this poverty, my first reaction was anger. Less than 5 minuits ago, we were riding through high class neighborhoods and casinos and now we are in slums. How could those peoples hearts be so hardened to the fact that children are starving right down the road? God showed me I was just like them before by His grace and mercy I got saved.. My second reaction was heart break. I wanted to fix this. I wanted to feed and clothe all of the children. I wanted to pick them up and tell them they are loved. I wanted to tell them they have a grreater purpose than this. The only problem with that? It all begins with "I", There is nothing I alone can do about any of this but THERE IS SOMETHING GOD CAN, AND WILL, DO ABOUT IT! God is going to use whoever is willing to fix this. Apart from Him, we can do nothing, with Him we can do anything! Please join me in constant prayer for these beautiful children!

First, I want to say anything you read on this blog, or anything I write, is NOT for my glory, but soley for the honor and glory of my Daddy, Jesus Christ.
God has called me into full time missions in Africa. When I came home from Kenya, my life changed dramatically. I no longer want to make myself feel "comfortable", I'm thankful just to have somewhere to sleep! I no longer care if my shoes match my outfit, I'm soo UNWORTHY to even own a pair of shoes! I don't complain if I eat…Continue
