Changed Lives

Bridgette Boylan, US Kenya board member, has traveled to Kenya with me this trip. Many of you have told me how much you enjoy reading her updates so I wanted to send you her first one.

Blessed to have Bridgette with me,

Connie

As I make the long journey back to East Africa, I remember what an incredible, beautiful place this is. We often see what we want to see, don’t we? It’s all about perspective‎. If I allow myself only to see the pain – I see orphaned children, hungry, wandering around aimlessly, high from sniffing glue to ease their hunger pains. I see parched land from lack of rain. I see women walking 6 hours to source water. I see disabled bodies crawling on the ground trying to make their way through the crowds. I see young children sifting through mounds of trash with the goats to find food….BUT…if I look for the good – I see women and children carrying water on their backs in water backpacks and those packs hanging in their huts to store that safe water.  I see smiles on children’s’ faces playing in slum streets because their tummies don’t hurt anymore from safe water. I see Hope gardens in the Rift Valley ‎region where Pastor John is working the land with the widows who are thriving because of the food produced.  I see men, women, and children with restored dignity as they use hank cranks to operate their mobility carts to go to work and school.  I see families sleeping under bed nets – feeling safe and protected from malaria carrying mosquitoes.  I see young and old alike learning how to read and write for the first time and the pride on our teacher Sam’s face when they succeed.

I see so many smiles of gratitude for all the Kenyan Partners for Care staff has done here to change the lives of thousands of people.  And, I know it is because of those in the US that support the work of PFC that the staff can help so many.  I see the transformations.  I see the love.  I see the hope.  So blessed to be here. Bridgette
