"IT'S SPRING AND KENYA IS IN THE AIR"

We are in the process of making African plans: fundraiser, getting in great shape, scheduling trainings, eliminating everything but the most important 50 pounds in our suitcases, long, long, long, layovers in airports, sleeping for 8 hour stretches in 17.2" wide airline seats, being harassed by international airport guards, and all else that goes with international travel.


The head of the US State Dept. has issued a Travel Advisory for Kenya,  but those of us who serve under a different head, listen only to that voice. We'll keep you updated via facebook and the blog.
  
PRAYER REQUESTS: 
1. safe travels, 
2. health 
3. that we find favor in the sight of those we
   meet 
4. that hearts would be open to the gospel
   message.


It has always been my ambition to preach the gospel where Christ was not known, so that I would not be building on someone else's foundation. Romans 15:20

...and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. Ephesians 6:1


And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news! Romans 10:15

ART FOR THE HEART 
EXPRESSIVEETS NEWS
I recently completed Structured Sensory Intervention or Traumatized Children training held by the National Institute for Trauma and Loss in Children. It was be extremely beneficial in my work with children in Africa. A GIANT Thanks to the great therapists and neuroscientists  who are doing ground-breaking work in discovering the effect that trauma has on the brain. It changes everything, especially those who are helping folk deal with PTSD and other traumatic disorders.
