It was really great going back to Kenya in March with our whole family. Rehema is named for the Swahili word for mercy and compassion, and also after the children’s home and school I worked with in Kesogon. I’m hoping that I’ll be able to use these relationships and experiences to teach my daughters that the world is bigger than just what they can see- that there is a body of believers all around the world, about the lives and needs of other people. I hope that it will teach them to love people who are very different from themselves. When we went, Rehema wasn’t shocked by anyone’s skin color or how different their lives were from ours. She just played with kids and did the things she loved in the context of Kenya, and she was loved by all the people that we love there. It was a great experience.
