KENYA 2014–Charlotte 01-28-14 “Now that we’re home….”

Last days in Kenya and Coming home….Saturday at the SLC started with a typical schedule.  Breakfast at 7am, band rehearsal at 7:45.  The times of leading in worship were a bit bittersweet.   Knowing that the next day we would be leaving was laying heavy on my heart.  We led worship as normal and after the last session, I cried. …

This week has been yet another great experience. I’ve really learned a good bit about trust and understanding I don’t make things happen but God does. That’s my main takeaway. To expand on that to the fullest extent would be hard to contain in a single post, but there’s one story of God’s work that…

One of the World Music Mission’s best friends in East Africa since day 1 has been Taylor Martyn. He’s a gifted film maker and photographer who serves with his wife and children on the mission field. He helps tell the mission stories and he has helped tell the WMM story with SIMSudan. Here are a…

It’s hard to believe we are heading home tomorrow. Honestly, I’m so ready to see my wife and the boys, but I’m staying in the moment and trying to take in whatever God has in store for us for the remainder of the trip. One thing I’m very thankful for is the chance to meet so many…

This may the last message I send, as we leave for Nairobi tomorrow to catch a flight home.  First let me thank you for your prayers and support, as I would not be here if it wasn’t for you, the donors and supporters.  I was able to give the WMM Cajon (that I have played…

God’s will be done. We are nearing the end of our Kenya adventure.  We have sore fingers, tired voices, and thankful hearts. Serving the Sim Sudan teams has been such a pleasure.   Hearing their stories and getting a glimpse into how these wonderful people live and serve the people of South Sudan has certainly…

In my brief time here, I’ve observed that  this part of Africa is a bit of a puzzle. I’ve seen beautiful tea plantaions just a few minutes from a slum. Unattractive walls built from concrete blocks and razor wire attempt to conceal the beauty of colorful and lush plants. It’s a picture of what’s going…

Kenya 2014–Mary-Chris 01-24-14

To be honest, the first couple of days we were here, I was really having a hard time. I was ready to go home.  I was tired and I wanted to drink clean water without all the bottled water issues. But then meeting and talking to the missionary family’s and seeing how much they gave…

KENYA 2014–Charlotte 01-24-14

What a journey. I can not belive the week is almost over. It’s been a very busy week.  Very hard to find quiet time to write. I came on this journey not knowing what to expect other than new emotions.  I signed up for the trip not knowing what conditions would be like or really…

KENYA 2014–Ken 01-24-14

We have entered a little bit of a calm time, so I thought I would give you a little perspective on the place I am staying.  It is an amazingly beautiful, peaceful place. It would be almost paradise if my family was here. You may wonder why I get to be here. When you hear…
