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."

This is the day that the LORD has made!

This morning we joined a local church for worship and a message about Joshua, the warrior.  It was a more spirited service than most of us are used to!  We were grateful for the translated sermon and a mix of English and Swahili songs.

Flight # KQ654

We arrived in Kenya after many hours of sitting in planes.  Many thanks for your prayers and blessings for a safe flight.  We landed in Kenya and proceeded to collect our baggage which proved to be a bit more time consuming than expected as a few of our bags were late in coming out.
