Heading back to Kenya (5/3/18)

In April 2011 we arrived in Kijabe for the first time – the last seven years has been a blur of joys, sorrows, faith-building and hope.  We’ve been a part of a team of Kenyans and expats caring for thousands of sick babies and kids, educating hundreds of doctors, mentoring project teams through millions of shillings of infrastructure projects and training many rural pastors.  None of this has been done in isolation –...

Leaving Kijabe – for a year (28/5/17)

Executive summary:  We’re returning to Australia for a planned year home this June!
