In June of 2006 I went to Kenya with Engineering Ministries International as an intern to assist in the design of a girls secondary school just outside the city Kisumu. We worked with a ministry who had an incredible mission to serve the orphans by giving them love, food, and shelter. It was really a great trip. I was able to meet some really awesome people and help make it possible for teenage girls to receive an education.

If you haven't heard, there is currently tremendous political unrest in Kenya causing riots and has left most Kenyans fearing for their lives. Read more about it here. It seems that most of the violence is located in Western Kenya- particularly near Kisumu. I also received an email from someone at the organization I went to Kenya with saying he heard word that the brother of the pastor we worked with has had to flee for his life. It really makes it more real to hear that the area I traveled to and people I worked with there are being so deeply effected by this situation. Please keep them in your prayers.
