    March Medical Team: The Great Physician

    Posted on April 9, 2011 by in By Andrew

    Abby and I led our first team a few weeks ago. It was suppose to be a time for us to learn how to handle the logistics of having a group, but because of the Daniels’ emergency trip to the U.S. to take care of medical needs, we jumped in the water and learned to […]

    Tunajifunza Kiswahili

    Posted on March 30, 2011 by in By Abby

    As you all know, one of Andrew and I’s main priorities right now is learning Swahili.  I feel like we talk about it a lot, but no one back in America really knows how it is going…… So this post is to update you on how we are progressing in our Swahili classes.  (My school […]

    Harambee

    Posted on March 24, 2011 by in By Andrew

      We went to our first harambee the other day! Harambee is best translated in this context as fundraiser. Churches hold them when they need to purchase something for the ministry. It was an experience I doubt I will ever forget…   Orlando Ngenea Baptist Church is a village church about 40 minutes from our […]

    Meru Medical Team February 2011

    Posted on March 4, 2011 by in Uncategorized

      Abby and I joined a medical team a couple weeks ago (hence the long silence on our blog due to being so busy). We had an incredible time. God worked in so many wonderful ways! We hesitated going because our finances are tight and we had to pay our own food and lodging. Still, […]

    Contrast of a village unreached

    Posted on March 1, 2011 by in By Andrew

    We worked with a medical team this past week. I’ll write more on it later but there is one story that needs to be told… On our fifth and final day, everyone was exhausted from the massive amount of patients we had seen. It was lunch time, and the team was enjoying the solitude of […]

    The Heavenly Man

    Posted on February 12, 2011 by in By Abby

    I have never been a big reader.  But when I find a good book I can sit and read for hours.  I just finished an incredible book about 3 weeks ago.  It is called “The Heavenly Man.”  Andrew had started reading it before we came to Kenya, and about a week after getting here he […]

    This isn’t a short-term missions trip…

    Posted on January 31, 2011 by in By Andrew

    This isn’t a short-term trip. I’ve been having to come to the grips with this over the past month. I’ve been involved with missions pretty much all of my Christian life. I know the joy and excitement of spending a focused week or two with good friends overseas faithfully serving God. It is wonderful to […]

    More-with-less

    Posted on January 29, 2011 by in By Abby

    That’s the name of my new favorite cookbook. Seriously, it’s great! When getting ready to move to Kenya, I knew I would have to leave my cookbooks behind. First of all, they were HUGE and would never fit with the weight limit I had. But mostly, I didn’t know what kind of food I would […]

    Getting Started

    Posted on January 23, 2011 by in By Abby

      The kids are back and school is in session (actually it has been 3 weeks already, I am just late writing this entry ). Since we live on the school compound we hear kids at all hours of the day now, and I love it! Here is what a typical day at Mt. Kenya […]

    Passage to Manhood

    Posted on January 6, 2011 by in By Andrew

    When does a boy become a man? This question is played out in every males life, but it has new meaning through my time spent in Africa. To many tribes the answer is around age 13, when they are circumcised. To most Americans the idea of a boy being circumcised at 13 years old sounds […]
