We have all been invited to love some more. The Episcopal Church has commissioned me to return to Kenya to work as your missionary and their nurse with Dr. Gerry Hardison at Maseno Hospital in the fall of 2008. It is an unexpected privilege and an amazing gift.
Isaiah 6:8 reads: "Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, 'Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?' And I said, 'Here am I. Send me.'" God's call is clear, and it became clearer still when Kenya erupted into violence last winter, gravely affecting the lives of people there whose stories you have read here. The poor really have gotten poorer, the sick really have gotten sicker, and together we really can make a difference.
With your help and God's grace, I will be living and working in a region where HIV/AIDS, malaria and poverty have wiped out an entire generation. The children of Maseno must not be forgotten. Your donations are needed and most thankfully accepted.
