    The Timothy Initiative (TTI)

    Posted on April 12, 2011 by in By Andrew

    After the medical team departed we had another guest in Kenya. Pastor David Nelms, the senior pastor of our sending church (Grace Fellowship in West Palm Beach), was in Kenya! He came with one of the church leaders, Mark Thorpe, to work on details for The Timothy Initiative (TTI). TTI was founded by Pastor David […]

    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 […]

    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 […]

    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 […]

    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 […]

    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 […]

    Welcome to Nanyuki

    Posted on December 16, 2010 by in By Andrew

    We arrived in Nanyuki Saturday evening. The trip from Nairobi took about half an hour longer than the usual 3 hours due to holiday traffic, but I was kept satisfied by my bacon quiche and cheese and onion flatbread made by a pleasant French lady. Nanyuki was founded in 1907 by British settlers, and the […]

  • Following God’s Timing

    Posted on November 5, 2010 by in By Andrew

    Abby and I went into marriage knowing that God had called us to the missions field. We got married June 26,2009 and two months later started our senior year of college. Moving to the missions field is often a long process, so it was at this point that we started making plans and contacting the […]

    The Journey Begins

    Posted on September 1, 2010 by in By Andrew

    To get this blog started I am going to dig a bit into the past. Abby and I are already on our way to moving to Kenya in December, but to fully appreciate where we are going, it is helpful to know where we came from. I, Andrew, have known that I wanted to do […]
