Stand Up And Be A Witness

Posted by Team Leader on

We were now at the Kid's Club for three days now. I am stationed at check-in and check-out, but once I finish check-in I "float" to the different stations. The stations include: discovery, games, and craft. Today in craft one of the leaders decided that it would be a brilliant idea to paint one...

According to Reverend Wambua, after guests spend three days in Kenya, they are no longer visitors; they are friends.  Saying goodbye to our friends at AIC Zion today was one of the hardest parts of the trip, although it was not truly “goodbye,” only “see you...

Today we went to a park in Louisville called Petersburg Park. I wasn't very excited at first as all we were told was mulch is our new best friend, later to find we were moving a lot of mulch. I had tons of fun surprisingly. We mulched around trees at this park and at the end, luckily, went to...

Day Six - Knowledge is Power

Posted by Team Leader on

Today we joined a group of Zion's primary school students on a field trip to Reverend Wambua's hometown in the countryside.  Both the students and the team enjoyed a reprieve from the slums and a breath of fresh air in the majestic Kenyan "upcountry."  Alan, Matthew, and Ben...

Day Five - Come to Zion

Posted by Team Leader on

As Alan said this morning, "today will be a typical day at Zion."  Our team is becoming more and more accustomed to the spontaneous "Africa time," and we are learning that the days on which we "freestyle" without a schedule are actually the most productive and impactful. The team...
