Kenya update and trip coming up!

Wow, it's been a while since I've posted! Sorry about that. It's been kind of a rough transition into 2010 with work and the holidays being so busy. Our Christams was spend with precious family and a lot of awesome memories were made. I hope you also had a great Christmas!

It has been a while since I have specifically posted about Mattaw Children's Village. There have been a lot of developements that have been going on with Mattaw, some of which I can't speak about at this time, however they are very, very postive!

One of the possibilities that TJ and I are looking at right now is coming on board with Mattaw staff while in the US. This would include doing some administrative things as well as working on sponsorships and networking with churches in our area that may want to get involved.

This is where YOU come in! TJ and I are tentatively looking at going on a vision trip in July 2010 for 7-10 days to visit Mattaw Children's Village. We are wanting to invite people who are interested learning more about the ministry, the culture of Kenya, and seeing what God is doing in the lives of so many who are suffering. It will truly change your life in many ways.

So, if you are the slightest interested in coming along, please leave a comment or email us at tlkenya (at) yahoo (dot) com.

We do not know the cost yet, but it will be somewhere between $2500 and $3000, depending on the cost of the tickets and whether or not we do a safari. We are praying for 10-15 people to come along this summer. If there are kids under the age of 18, a parent or youth pastor needs to be present.

So, please pray about this and see if orphan care is an area YOU would like to be involved in and participating in a trip this summer to see what God is doing in Africa.
