Voice of Hope - October 2018 | Hungry For Life

October 2018: ,

In October, Voice of Hope headed back to Kakamega, Kenya to continue their partnership with Everlyne and Martha.  A team of 8 women, led by HFL leaders Lauri and Sue, were involved in women's health and safety teaching, widow care, agricultural and money management training, among other activities.

Team Testimonials:

"I really saw the need to depend and rely on God in all circumstances."
"The widow visits were definitely my highlight. Seeing the look on their faces when we arrived and the joy the team brought to them was amazing."
"It humbled me to lean on the Lord as our widows do."
"Because of this trip, I will look for moments and times that I can help and not to become apathetic."
"This trip has made me realize (again) what the faith of people who have nothing but God looks like."
"God is God—We need to leave the brokenness and 'hard stories' in His sovereign control."

Safe in Nairobi!

Today we were thankful for the crowing roosters who wake us up at the crack of dawn! We needed to be on the road at 7 to be at the airport on time for our flight from Kisumu to Nairobi and the roosters made sure we were awake on time.

Last day in Kakamega...

This morning started off bright and early with the sun shining.  After another wonderful breakfast we put on our gum boots, got in the van and headed out to one of our widows’ places to weed and hoe her garden.  She was so cute when we arrived with hoes, gloves and gum boots on- ready to do work.

A Day in the Life of Voice of Hope

After several days of quick showers, no-makeup, uncombed hair and a bit of mud under our fingernails - today was the day to put on the glitz and get pretty! Due to a scheduling change we had a bit of extra time this morning to begin recording our individual video interviews.
