Serve vulnerable children in Kenya and Uganda
Make a Real Difference
When we improve the life of a child

March 5-19, 2023
Join me, Mama Debbie, as I return to my close friends in Kenya. We’ll share a meal with vulnerable people in Nairobi with Pastor Daniel Otwere. In Eldoret, we’ll join our nurse, Phelister, as we take food and medicine to malnourished kids in the slum. We’ve been invited to Sylvia’s home to see how she manages without a refrigerator or a washing machine. As you get close to Prayer Mountain, you will notice a hush grow over our group as we sense the presence of God. There is a sewing and garden center in Bungoma that needs willing hands to build, garden, and sew. At night, we’ll stay in comfort at my favorite hotel. We’ll feed street kids and visit single mothers. You’ll get a chance to not just be a tourist, but to immerse yourself in the culture of modern Kenya.
