A Heart for Kenya
Organized by: Lisa Gardiner
EVENT DATE Sep 17, 2014
It's been two years since I have stood on African soil. Loved on, painted with and prayed over the Jacaranda women, and children that live in the slums. I knew in my heart when we pulled away that it wasn't a matter of if I'd be back, but when.
There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about and pray for the people God put on my path and connected me with in Africa. I consider them family in Christ. Brothers and Sisters ,daughters and sons a divine family that only God can arrange. He not only broke my heart ,but changed it forever.
My dear friend Rhonda asked me to go the first time. My first response was NO God promptly reminded me that this wasn't about me, it was about him. So my No turned into a yes. Rhonda has asked me to return with her to continue the work we started two years ago. We wil visit the women ,and children in the slums pray over them, and respond to their specific needs. We will be collecting information needed for the children to get sponsored into schools where they have a hope and a future, something slum life does not offer. I'll also be going as an artist. I'm very much looking forward to doing some art with the children, something that is a luxury there.
I humbly ask for prayer over the trip for those of us traveling and the ones we are going to encounter and serve. Please also pray for our families that we will leave behind and are supporting us emotionally. Prayers for provision are needed as well ,and if you feel so lead giving to this trip would be amazing and such a blessing. Some of the funds will be going to purchase art supplies and basic necessities for the people we are going to serve. Thank you so much in advance for taking the time to read this, pray for us ,and for your giving.
Three things will last forever--faith, hope, and love--and the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13:13
