We Belong to Each Other

“If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other” – Mother Teresa

As I prepare to leave again for my second home in Kenya, I am struck by the oneness, the interconnectedness of us all--that everything that we do has consequences and leads to something else. This community here in Northwest Arkansas has been so supportive of Restore Humanity over the last 9 years and our support network grows seemingly by the day. Almost every thing that we have been able to do to provide assistance to those in need in Kenya has been the result of awesome people in this community donating whatever they can to help others.

It is not the result of the generosity of a few who are well off—it is the result of the generosity of the many who give what they can when they can. It is such an honor to be a part of it.  Our extremely hard-working Kenyan Team has put all of this generosity to good use and as a result lives have been changed for the better. With all of the negativity that we hear about and face everyday, it is so good to know that people do care and we all can make a difference.

We all belong to each other and I am honored to be a connecting piece between all of these wonderful humans. Thank you all on the Kenyan side and the U.S. side for all of your hard work and pure love for humanity. You have made all of this possible!

 On this trip I will be taking lots of photos of the newly completed Maternity Ward that we built at the local clinic ! I will also be checking in on our outreach program at the local school, checking on our RH Scholar, Jerrym, in Nairobi and of course spending hours upon hours with our sweet kiddos at the JCO Children’s Home. I will have lots of exciting blogs with updates when I return at the end of July. In the meantime you can follow me on Instagram and follow me on Facebook to join me on the journey!

Have a great summer and we will talk soon…

With gratitude,
