Thursday - Sweet Reunions

Posted by Team Leader on

Saludos desde Panama! Our first full day here (Thursday) has come and gone. We accidentally started our day an hour early because our phone did not adjust to the time change!

Posted by Team Leader on

The day finally came! Our time of preparation was short and our team is small, but good things come in small packages, and God is sovereign over all! (hey that rhymes!) And what a sweet group it is, put together by God before time began. I think that if we gained nothing more than the fellowship...

Heading Home To The Mission Field

Day Eight - The Longest Distance

Posted by Team Leader on

On our last Sunday in Kenya, we spent the majority of our day at Zion's three church services.  We are still intrigued by the scheduling of events in Kenya; the services have starting and finishing times listed in the bulletin, but they seem to begin without warning and...

Our team was mostly split up today as we completed various projects at AIC Zion.  We immensely enjoy spending time with the students and striving to improve the school, church, and facilities that will ultimately allow them to succeed. Eric devoted his day to working with local...
