Going to Kenya

Kenya My sweet friend Kristen from We Are THAT Family is on her way to Kenya TODAY! A few months ago she was asked by Compassion International to travel to Kenya and blog about her trip. How cool is that???

I ask her all the time if she is praying “The Prayer of Jabez” in I Chronicles 4:10.

“Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, ‘Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.’ And God granted his request.”

God certainly is “enlarging her territory”! The way this trip came about and the way that God is taking care of all of the details amaze me. Why am I surprised?

She will be gone from March 2 through March 12. Please pray for her husband and 3 children while she is away. They are one of the most amazing families I have ever met. They are all thrilled for this adventure for their mom and have welcomed it with open arms. In fact, her husband Terrell has created a beautiful necklace to honor her and her trip. It is available at their shop on Etsy. Check it out! Part of the proceeds from the sale of these necklaces will help to raise money for their ADOPTION. That upcoming chapter in their lives will begin shortly. See, I told you that God was enlarging their territory!

You can follow Kristen’s story every day on her blog We are THAT family. I know you will be blessed by her transparency and willingness to show all of us a country that struggles and children who have nothing. Our family will be following daily and discussing how God can use us to touch others around the world. I hope you will be inspired to open up your mind to those opportunities as well.

  1. Wow, I just read Kristen's blog. How do you know her? She needs to meet Lynn, who's gone to Ethiopia 3 times and adopted their baby girl from Africa. Such an incredible story and family.
