It was such a joy to be able to go to Kenya with Synora.
Here is what she has written about her experience in Kenya:
I went to Kenya to teach, but what I learned was
the spirit of humility,
the spirit of patience.
I learned to be flexible in my flexibility.
I learned the spirit of serving with a cheerful heart
the spirit of receiving with gratefulness.
I learned that time can stand still when you close your eyes and open your ears to the laughter,
joy, and communion to what seems to be less, but is far greater than any physical possession.
I went to Kenya to teach, but what I learned is a longing of the fullness of God,
a freedom of worship,
and everything is a song.
I learned the joy of a child's heart is the very delight of His.
I learned there is no offering too small and there is nothing greater when given with a heart of purity.
I learned that God is everywhere,
the sun on my face,
the wind in my hair.
I went to Kenya to teach, but what I learned is to say YES and live beyond my fears trusting and believing that He is with me, breaking every barrier I have built, equipping me.
I learned that a clenched fist only gives white knuckles, but when I open and outstretch my hand,
God can do big things.
