Christmas Groceries12.16.14

  Not many people in America would honestly want groceries for Christmas.  Most ask for impractical, unnecessary, or even outlandish items for Christmas.  And many people get exactly what they ask for.  There is absolutely nothing wrong with that because most families can do it.  After all, it’s Christmas.  It is supposed to be special.  It is worth it when you see that humongous smile on your loved one’s face! In Kenya if a family receives one pound of beef for Christmas they will have that same smile!  It’s true.  I’ve been there.  I’ve delivered groceries into homes on Christmas day.  I wish you could see their faces.  We give rice, flour, butter, sugar, corn meal, beans, sugar, salt, milk, tea, fruit, cooking oil, dish soap, bath soap,  and of course a few small sweets along with the BEEF!  This will last a large family for a couple of weeks.  It will not only feed their […]

Shoes in Kenya!11.14.14

Recently Days of Elisha Ministries was able to bless 57 children in an orphanage with not one, but TWO pairs of brand new shoes!! Imagine their surprise. Most of them have never in their lives had a new pair of shoes. Many of them had no shoes. After we took the mission team to Kenya in June of this past summer one of the team members was so moved by God that she got to work immediately once we returned to the states. She raised the money to purchase the shoes for the children. I am so proud of her. She heard the voice of the Lord on the trip and then actually came home and DID something about it. Shoes in Kenya are so much more than shoes in America. Shoes protect feet from the raw sewage that flows. Shoes protect feet from the dry and scorching hot ground […]

Health Update09.23.14

So I realized I haven’t written an update on my health lately. Thanks for those asking and always praying. Please don’t stop!! I’ve tried to be as open and honest about this journey as possible with the hope of encouraging someone going through a tough season. I do not write to call attention to myself or my issues. I believe this can all be used to demonstrate the Glory of God and to remind us all that everyone goes through things. We need help from time to time and that’s ok. We need people. We need Jesus. I couldn’t do this without friends, family, & faith in my Savior. I am still going to MDA every 2 weeks for chemotherapy. I do a 3 hour process there then come home with the chemo pump for 48 hours. The medication I’m getting now is more difficult than the first one but […]

I am Six05.30.14

It’s early in the morning.  I’m sure it’s morning because Mama has awaken me to care for my sister although it is still dark outside.  I have a piece of bread and take tea.  Sister is tied in the sling on my back where she will stay all day.  As soon as I finish eating I wash dishes with the very little water available.  The water will be used again so I must be very careful not to waste any of it.  Mama will leave for work and we won’t see her again until after dark tonight.  She is a hard worker.  I am not sure what she does but she comes home very tired and some days sad.  Some days she has been mistreated, but it does not matter to her so long as we get a meal of sukuma wiki and ugali.  If there is not too much […]

We Will NOT Be Denied05.14.14

When I was officially diagnosed in December 2013 with Stage IV Colorectal Cancer and was told that it is inoperable and incurable I was momentarily taken aback.  I did not believe that this could be true because we still have so much to do for the Lord and so much vision that we have not yet completed.  During the course of the next several days and weeks as I sought the Lord I asked Him what my role in this journey is.  He spoke to my Spirit and simply said for me to be faithful and obedient.  I promised Him that with His help and His Grace that is sufficient I would try to remain faithful and obedient.  There are some days I feel neither of those things!  But because He is good and gracious He helps me in those times.  One thing we had planned before this attack on […]
