You may or may not know, but I'm officially going back to Kenya in September! The trip this year will be a bit different from last year's trip. Although we will still be staying at Naomi's Village, this year we will be going to support the ministry of Issac and Esther Karanja and the Rift Valley Fellowship church plant. The focus of our trip is to share the gospel with the people of the surrounding area. We will be visiting with people in the IDP camp and in Maai Maihu, a nearby town. We are also hoping to help launch the church plant while we're there.

About 6 weeks ago my team and I met to prepare and send out our support letters.

Here's a few detail shots of my letter design.
As you can tell, I sent out a TON of letters. I can't remember the exact number, but I think it was somewhere around 80 letters.

I guess it's been about 5 or 6 weeks since I sent my letters, and the Lord has already been so faithful to provide funds for my trip. As of Thursday, I had raised $1,750, which is over half of my trip expense! Can you believe how quickly He is answering prayers?! He is SO good!

On Wednesday a few of us went to the Rangers game. Although the Rangers lost BIG TIME, we still had a great time getting to know each other. I'm looking forward to spending more time with everyone!

Don't be fooled, this isn't everyone. There will be a total of 16 members on our team. I hope this is the first of many team hang-out sessions!

Sunday, June 3 is our next meeting. There's not a whole lot going on right now because we're still a few months out, but will you still continue to pray for us? 
Pray for unity for our team.
Pray against attack from the enemy.
Pray for the people in Kenya that will engage.

Just pray.

He is faithful!
Love, Jules
