Africa 2014 Update

After a relatively easy transition into our trip on Wednesday, the pace of action has picked up quite rapidly the last few days. On Thursday morning we flew from Kenya down to Zambia to meet with John Enright. John is a great guy who loves The Lord and shares a similar vision and passion to bring economic and spiritual transformation to the people in his community through business. He told us about a number of his projects including honey, cattle, pigs, moringa, aloe and bananas. It was a quick trip as we flew back to Kenya on Friday night but it was very inspiring to see the work John is doing and to catch a good vision for how we can work with him to grow his projects in the future.

We followed that trip up with a flight down to the Masai Mara on Saturday morning. Visiting our good friends, Tarquin and Lippa, and checking in on our cattle and honey projects is always a highlight of our trips to Africa. We were able to see the great progress that is being made with the cattle herd and discuss some good options for how to improve our work with the community on the honey project. We also had a chance to stop by the Emarti high school to visit some classrooms and encourage the kids to study hard and challenged them to grow in their relationship with Christ as well. After a late flight back from the Mara Sunday evening we are now off to Uganda very early Monday morning where we will get a chance to visit our amaranth farmers and have some meetings to look at a new project growing cocoa as well.

Asante sana (Swahili for thank you very much) for the continued prayers. We are excited to see the work God is allowing us to be a part of here and pray for His continued guidance as we move to Uganda for the remainder of our trip.
