AFRICA - DISNEYLAND STYLE



I'm posting this picture in honor of Melissa and the team
that just arrived in Kenya, East Africa today, for a 2 week
Mission Trip.
The team will be involved with H.E.A.R.T. which empowers
women in the slum city on the outskirts of Nairobi.
Many women are able to support their AIDs ravaged families
through new jobs provided by small loans and education.

ITS A SMALL WORLD AFTER ALL

I agree with Ginny, such a great trip to be helping others.

Studies have shown that supporting women's efforts to establish income streams makes a radical difference in their families' well being. Plus they have a higher rate of loan repayment. May all go well with the mission trip. Sue, your post is a thoughtful reminder of how small our world has become and who our neighbors are!!

That's a marvellously colourful picture to illustrate such a wonderful mission.... education is the key to unlock the cycle of poverty and despair.
