All 12 of us that made the trip to The Lord’s Servants home are back in our own homes. Six of our group made their first mission trip. All together we had people on the ground for over 5 weeks, we brought and left over 1000 pounds of supplies, we gave messages over 6 weekends to 3 different churches and encouraged schools and other groups.
Trip review details will follow. Here are a few quotes from Mike and Tom, both who made their first mission trips…
This was the trip of a lifetime for me. Many folks who I talked to before we left told me that the things which I thought to be important on the day I left would not be the things I thought to be important on the day I returned. They were absolutely right. The people in Kenya have given me some insight on many issues I struggle with here in the US. As a general rule, all the people I met had very little by way of worldly goods, but they were way much more happy than many of us who have much by way of worldly goods and possessions. Eunice kept telling me how blessed she and (Pastor) Ken are, and actually asked me what she could do for me because they had so much. I am still reduced to tears by the love and caring demonstrated by the people I met. They have touched my heart in a manner which I did not think was possible. ….. Mike
Thank you for the note. I can not tell you how much our trip to Kenya has meant to my family and I. We were very humbled by your service and ministries. We would not have traded our trip for anything.
My wife and daughter are already discussing a return trip in 2014. Many of our friends saw our pictures and heard our stories and they too were very humbled and encouraged by how God is using you in a great way…..We will continue to support, encourage, and pray at our church and through the work of Lord’s Servants Home ministry. May God Richly Bless You! Tom
