Hey! This is Eric. As our team is spending its last afternoon in Kenya doing some reflecting and debriefing, I thought I’d take a few moments to post some photos from throughout the trip. I hope you enjoy them!
We will be having a farewell dinner with the Wathome’s and some of the Beacon staff tonight, and we will be departing from Nairobi Airport close to midnight Kenya time. Pray that our travel goes as smoothly as the trip down here!
The team found a rug woven just for us!

Gail and Julie cheering-on the kids as they do a relay race!
Kiddos running from station to station during the sports-games day!
Mike is marking the end-point of the relay race acting like a “tree” for the kids to run around.
Mr. and Mrs. “Freeze” are running the freeze-tag game and trying their best to get the kids to understand that they need to “freeze” when they are tagged, instead of just running away laughing 🙂
Emily getting chased while teaching the kids “Duck, Duck, Goose”…but to make it a little more understandable it was changed to “Bird, Bird, Lion” 🙂
Nate (the Games master), Colleen, Cali, and Todd posing with all of their soccer (futbol) kiddos!
When this adorable little girl in purple prayed, she raised her face to Heaven, folded her hands up high, and prayed boldly in a very, very loud voice. 🙂
Tyler brought us the WORD during the morning devotional. What a moving message: “We are called to be a light IN the darkness, not to light up the entire darkness…God will do that.”
So… we ended up being quite rushed finishing our debrief time, and I wasn’t able to post this until now. We are currently sitting in the Heathrow airport for our 5-hour layover before starting the last leg of our journey back to the States. Last night we had a wonderful departure dinner with the Wathomes (Ken, Jane, Debbie, Brian, and friend Issac) along with Rosemary and Michael (staff at Beacon). We left dinner JUST on time to get to the airport in time to check-in and be among the last few passengers boarding our flight 🙂 I just LOVE “Kenyan Time”!
That’s it for now. I will post pics from the other half of the trip in the next couple days.
Thanks for praying for us!
