Our final two days in Kenya were spent on safari in the beautiful Maasai Mara. We saw 3 of the Big 5: lions, elephants, and buffalo. We stayed in a resort and slept in “tents” which were more like houses, and everyone got massages before our bumpy ride back to Nairobi this morning.
It is sad to think we are leaving Kenya, but we have so many incredible memories to look back on. A lot of our plans fell apart, especially with St. Kizito’s, but we learned to take failure in stride and make something beautiful out of a mess. As our team said, we “made lemonade out of lemons” and found a way to serve the people around us even if it was different than planned. We really had to trust God with this trip and learned that nothing will happen if it’s not in His plan. It’s been a long 2 weeks and we are all exhausted, but excited for what comes next for us with St. Kizito’s and Kenya. This is not the end, but only the beginning. We plan to continue fundraising at churches and working hard to provide the money needed for St. Kizito’s to purchase new land. In the meantime, we will not stop praying for these children and this beautiful country.
Thank you all for your support over these weeks and for following us here!
