Trying to explain my love for Kenya now is like trying to explain why there are stars in the sky.

If you ever get the chance, you should go. Read more
“Sometimes something touches your heart so deeply that “doing nothing” isn’t an option anymore. You become determined to make a change rather than coming up with excuses of why you can’t. Not because the fear stops lurking, but because the desire to do something is now greater.” Bethany Haley Williams, Ph.D. Read more
Four years ago today (on 3/29/12) our lives changed forever as we know it. We flew across the ocean to Kenya for the first time and had the opportunity to love and serve others in some meaningful ways.

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.

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 am I here?
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
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.
We are grateful to have so many opportunities to speak, share, sell bracelets, serve and partner in our community with YOU!
We are overwhelmed with so many awesome opportunities that KEEP coming on a daily basis! We are lining up our calendar to invite others to come be a part of the change they wish to see in the world, to be a JUST ONE world changer!!
