Help My Team Get to Nairobi

If you consider yourself a person of the praying type, I'd love for you to partner with me in prayers for our team and our upcoming trip to Kenya!

There are 15 of us going in just under a month. Many individuals on our team are up against some incredibly steep deadlines for funding.  It costs $2600 per person.  All money is due on Monday and many members of our team still have not reached that goal.  We have all been hard at work fundraising, but we are trusting that each one of us is supposed to go on this trip and we are trusting that God will provide the funds.  

While in Kenya, we will be working with Jacaranda Creations, a sewing ministry started in the slums to give women a trade and skill to provide for their family.  We will also be working with Jacaranda Kids, a sponsorship program that provides education to children living in the slums of Nairobi.  And we will also begin work with a medical center in Mararui slum.  

I can't even begin to describe how excited I am to be going back so soon!  I can't wait to hug those precious faces I got to meet last year.  

If you can help support financially, no matter how big or small, we would greatly appreciate it.  Every penny counts!
