friends in kenya

One of the things I always look forward to when going to Kenya is getting to spend time with both familiar and new faces at Food for the Hungry. These people do incredible work on behalf of FH. They love on the people in the communities they serve and seek to advocate on their behalf. They work tirelessly always with a smile. And even though having a team come visit adds extra work to their job, they always welcome us in with open arms. We consider them great friends. 

Every morning we would start the day at the Food for the Hungry office with devotions and often before we left for Njuruta we would also enjoy a cup of Kenyan tea. 

We got to spend some extra time with Zipporah and Makena who hosted our team. We are so thankful for these women and all they did for us.

We of course also made other friends along the way.
Here are the sweet women who took care of us where we stayed by cooking and cleaning for us.

At the end of our journey, when we returned to Nairobi, we got to see our sweet friends Loise and John. It was so great to see and catch up with good friends. We wish they lived closer.
