I’m just a few weeks away from my trip to Kenya!

Today, shots and pills! I didn’t think that I needed any as I have been to a few different countries. In Africa, however, polio is still a danger. And, my typhoid shot wasn’t good as long as I thought it was. This time, though, it can be taken in oral form for a week and will protect me for the next 5 years.

So, now I am vaccinated against Hepatitis A, Typhoid, Yellow Fever, and Polio. I also have an updated Tetanus shot and a prescription for Malaria pills.

When I got home, my passport and visa had arrived in the mail. I am so excited. It only took about 2 weeks to get back! I was already getting apprehensive that I wouldn’t get it.

I am preparing to take some items for both Wycliffe and Kawira, including Bibles that are embossed with their first name on the front cover. Additionally, I will be taking some other books, including one called Soul Print by Mark Batterson (author of Wild Goose Chase & In the Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day) and a small $0.99 book called 199 Promises of God. There are a few other things that I’d like to take and I’m compiling a list of items. I’m hoping to take Kawira some fabric for dressmaking as she is in a dressmaking trade school.

This is all becoming so real and I cannot wait to meet them!

Please pray for:

1) Ease of traveling

2) Health

3) An opportunity to meet with these two wonderful kids

4) God’s amazing power to show up and help all of us going to Nairobi be ministers of truth and of God’s deep love.
