All Things Africa

God calls you to the place where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet. ~ Frederick Buechner

I’ve been called to Africa since I was twenty years old, but the flame was lit when I was a young child. It is my passion. It is my love. A fire burns within my soul for this land that I cannot explain.

This past year my husband and I had the privilege of traveling to Kenya with World Vision to learn and listen and live life beside the people of Katito. This journey was the greatest experience of my life. We met our sponsor children, Awuar Margaret and Washington, and saw their hope. We spent time in with children and those afflicted with AIDS. We met with farmers, budding entrepreneurs, and orphans who are now raising their siblings alone. We visited schools, health clinics, greenhouses, water wells, and so much more. We celebrated and danced over clean water! We saw the face of God in Kenya, and our lives are forever changed.

Africa holds our heart. They are our family now. So we live each day praying for them, advocating for them, and doing what we can one step at a time to support them in reaching their life given potential. All proceeds from our handmade soaps go to supporting communities in Kenya, Uganda, and other needy ones around the globe. Contact me if you’d like more information on how you can help too!
