Hello from Narok Kenya! I'm having an incredible time along with my lady Leah(regardless of the fact that we've not showered or eaten a real meal for some time now.) the two of us are living with 55 orphans who have nothing. Nothing at all. They are in such dire need.
So, I have bought them a plot of land for their very own. It is on a hilltop, safe & beautiful. I have designed the plot of land to include a sustainable garden, land for their chickens & goats to graze, lots of space for the kiddos to run and play and a beautiful house for the kids and their guardian Johnson, (the amazing man who took them all in) to call home. Leah, Johnson and myself will spend the rest of our time here working with neighbors and friends to build this home. I am so happy to see these children so happy.
I next want to build them a much needed school on the land as well as provide them with shoes, clothing, books, food and other everyday simplicities that these kiddos go without.
I will remain in Africa for several more weeks. When i eventually return home to the states, I'll update my friends (all of you) and let you know, IF you would like to,how you can help me help them. Okay, Sending you all lots of love from Africa,
