Kenya March 2009

Yesterday our mission team gave a presentation of our trip.  I am still processing everything that happened, but I thought I would post a few photos.  I have 1600+ photos from the trip on my laptop and I have not even looked at all of them yet!  I did not take that many photos — they are a compilation of all the photos taken by the group, which were six of us from ICT and the two missionaries on the ground in Dajo. But here are a few from the trip:

Three of us had not been to Africa before, so we attended an orientation before going into Sudan.  While we were at orientation, Nancy and Eric went to the Charisma Tumaini school in Nairobi’s Sinai slum.  The school was originally started as a feeding center, but is now a full time school.  We took soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, pencils, erasers, and crayons for the children.  And our church has funded a project to build a latrine for the school.  As you can see, there is human waste everywhere in the slum because there are no toilet facilities.  The people live in tin shacks and human waste is gathered into plastic bags and just thrown out.

Next post will be more about Dajo Sudan.
