Mission Work

My mother-in-law is in Kenya, Africa working with a local church to teach locals how to purify their water to make it safe to drink.  It was her first trip overseas, and the trip will last 10 days.
This is a picture of her at one of the local villages, with school children that her group delivered pen-pal letters to.  The pen-pal program is set-up through the school of the church who organized the trip, and letters are exchanged with each Mission trip.  She said the conditions were just awful, but the children were her bright spot; they're so loving and excited to meet new people.  The children speak English, but some of the things in the pen-pal letters had to be explained, like 'I like to eat hot dogs' does not mean real dogs.
I'm so proud of my mother-in-law, and I hope you will keep her in your prayers.
If you're interested in going on a Mission trip, local churches in your area are the best place to start inquiring.  You don't necessarily have to be a member of that church to participate, but the church will have more information for you.
