I am so excited to announce that I’ve been invited to tour in the UK and Kenya this May! In the UK, we’re partnering with Young Life UK, and in Kenya, we are partnering with Africa Inland Mission. The Lord is just opening doors in amazing ways! My family will go with me as well, which is such an incredible blessing.
We’re posting a page this weekend with all the details, but a quick overview is that we will spend a week in the UK touring to support Young Life UK, and then we will go to Kenya for three weeks. In Kenya, we’ll be hosted by the Rift Valley Academy in Kijabe, which is a school for children whose parents are serving with Africa Inland Mission. We will also get to do concert ministry in Nairobi and Mombasa, and work with AIDS orphans in a day school in Kijabe (many of you know that this is a cause the Lord has really laid on my heart). We will also get to minister with the Maasai tribe.
If that weren’t enough, as many of you know, I am a World Vision artist, and I have been sponsoring children through them since I was 17. We sponsor several children in East Africa, and one of them, Abassa, lives near where we are touring in Kenya, and we will get to meet him! This is a child we have been sponsoring and praying for for 8 years or more. I never thought I would have an opportunity to meet one of our WV children, and I’m just overwhelmed with how good God is!
We’ll put up a page with links to all these sites in the next couple of days. Make sure to sign up for our email newsletter – we’ll be blogging on the progress of the trip, and also from the UK and Kenya, so you can keep up with what the Lord is doing!
