After a full day I'm back at the home of my wonderful gracious family, drinking chai and eating sweet potatoes. Spent the day with our Rehoboth's woman's project. They are the ones who make the beautiful baskets and they decided it was time for Mama Amy(my Kenyan name) to learn. Fun, laughter and harder than it looks, but they say I'm a quick learner. As the days unfold I'm trusting in the One who has called me on this safari(Swaheli for journey)

The Photo is for Miss Hannah:-)

Sitting at Heathrow waiting for the gate to open. 12 hr lay over, got a hotel for the day. Nap and a hot shower priceless:-) Filled with joy, excitement and much anticipation. Standing on the reclaimed ground of my life and held firmly in His Grip. Next stop Nairobi!!

As I begin my finial preparations, I find myself overwhelmed with gratitude. Each one of you reading this has played a part in the fulfillment of this dream. One by one God has but in place a sacred community that holds me. There is an African proverb that says "it takes a whole village to raise a child". Well it has taken a whole village to raise this woman. My prayer is to be the hands and feet of the One who has called me. I will carry each one of you with me on this journey.

72 Hours to wheels up!
