We left Nashville on 1/18/14 to set out for the Spiritual Life Conference in Kenya. We had over 16 hours of flight time spread across two days.

They serve as doctors, nurses, linguists, engineers, evangelists, technicians, business developers, and pilots. The WMM team of musicians and childcare workers prays that Jesus will be lifted up to draw...
