Kenya, Africa

I was able to go on a once in a lifetime mission trip with the Hydrating Humanity Organization http://hydratinghumanity.org to the Rural Part of the Kuria District in Southern Kenya in the Summer of 2013. We went to visit the water projects that my extended family have corporately sponsored together in an effort to share the love of Jesus and bring clean water to the children & people there. What a blessing to be able to photograph these AMAZING kids and people. It was humbling to be a witness to the Joy that is there..when their circumstances seemed so desperate. How eye opening to have come from a place of overabundance, indulgence and ingratitude to a place where people were Joyous with seemingly nothing on the outward. It is all about what is inside and our attitude towards life. It is like what the Apostle Paul said,

"Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am. 12I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need. 13I can do all things through Him who strengthens me. " Philippians 4:12. 

I hope to continue to return to Africa and I know we as a family, will always be supporting HH in their quest to bring clean water to all different regions and therefore giving life to people in these regions.

 

 

Africa Mission TripIt's not too late... the angel said. Even though the world's a mess... Even though you're not as young... Even though you've made mistakes and have been afraid It's not too late... And then I saw the world through the angels' eyes... I saw the colors I could paint The bridges I could build The lives that I could touch The dreams that could still come true And it became very clear to me... That it's not too late.
