Have you ever dreamt something so real and vivid that when you woke up you felt like it was real? Or have you ever wished for something so powerfully that you thought you would break if you didn't get it? Or have you ever been in a situation that was so amazing that is was surreal? Or have you ever felt like you were living a dream that you never really knew you wanted? This is EXACTLY how I felt the entire time I was in Kenya.
As a kid, I never dreamed of going to Kenya to share how God works in the lives of ordinary women like you and I, to little girls at St. Mary's school. I never dreamed of walking through mud up to my calves, for hours, to greet the orphans that I was praying would get sponsored before we left, so that one burden could be lifted off of their care taker's shoulders. I never dreamed of opening up my heart and sharing my story to children I barely even knew, so that they too could know they could find restoration in God. I never dreamed of drinking tea until my stomach hurt, eating endless amount of ugalli, fish, "meat", chicken, and kail, or washing my clothes out by hand. I never dreamed of falling in love with beautiful, innocent little faces, that just wanted to know they were loved. But from the moment my feet touched Kenyan soil, I knew I was living my dream.
Word or pictures could never fully display or share the experience we had in Kenya. It was truly one of those "you had to be there" moments. One blog cannot due for the amazing two weeks that I had. 14 blogs would not due. But ask me. Ask me to share a story with you. Ask me how my heart was changed. Ask me how I got confirmation that I'm walking in my path. Ask me how Kenya was
