We will never be the same

Trying to explain my love for Kenya now is like trying to explain why there are stars in the sky. It’s near impossible to explain my sheer love for the country that I was not born in…though there are many days I wish I was. I love the people, the culture, and it is just so beautiful.

Four years ago our lives changed forever…

Four years ago today (on 3/29/12) our lives changed forever as we know it.

“Human suffering ANYWHERE concerns men and women EVERYWHERE.” Elie Wiesel

This little baby is the one that started it all. In 2012 we were serving in this Kenyan community on the shores of Lake Victoria. We had partnered with the locals to build a new hut for this child’s grandmother as the rain had washed much of the mud walls away and it was no longer safe to live in. Read more

Why?

Janet - Vulnerable Children

Janet is Just One!

Honest and reflective jet lagged post: Leaving Kenya and coming back to the states is always so hard and is full of internal conflict.

Why are they there?
Why are our situations not reversed?
Why am I surrounded with excessive abundance?
How can I work to bring more sustainable development and impact in the communities we serve in?
What can I keep learning from my Kenyan friends?
How does my perspective still need to change? What are the next steps? Read more

Just One Experience - Support the Team

It starts with Just One…

A mission trip (in March of 2012) to work at an orphanage in Kenya stirred the hearts of the Churchill (Clay, Amy and their children) and Wilde (Alastair & Geanna) families so much, they came back home and founded a charitable organization to continue and expand the work they had begun.  Just One Africa was born.
