Yesterday was our last day working in the schools with the kids. We went to Vipingo to do our activity day with the kids just like what we did at Bomani. The team did an outstanding job once again improvising a few things they needed for their activities that never arrived. We had such an amazing time with the kids and I think having the simple play time with the kids really bonded all of us. Before we leave for Kenya we spend time talking with the team about asking God to prepare you for the life change He is going to do in your life: the relationships he is going to form, the kids He is going to burden your heart with and the overwhelming needs you will see here. Now the time has come that the team is feeling these things and has to ask God what He is calling the team to do about it.
We had to say our goodbyes to both schools and all our new friends which made for a really hard end to our day. It was the first time ever leaving one of the schools that you could hear a pin drop because it was that silent on the bus. Like with any ending starts a new beginning! God took each one of us to Kenya for His purpose - for some this will be their only time and others will be back again. Some will go back home with a passion for the ministry and inspire others to support a child or go to Kenya. Others will be inspired to do bigger things God has been preparing them for. Whatever it is please join in praying for the team with me that they will have a tender heart for how God wants to use this trip in their life.
