Pack your experience in Kenya into 1 week!

 The Colorado team arrived Jan 2nd at Grace of God Children's Centre and hit the ground running! Literally they went for a jog with David the same day they arrived! Shoo.
 Here they are on Sunday after church making frienship bracelets and button bracelets with the children.
 Time for Hillary our oldest to head back to High School-boarding school. He went for a track workout with the team and had them work hard!

Madi, Luke, David, Morgan, Chris, Ryan, David Lagat (This is a group shot of the UCCS/Wingate team except for David who may end up going to UCCS soon for schooling)

ITEN-Home of the Champions!
The guys on the team helped out with plastering the Bees on a Mission house!


They also worked on chiseling out the brick walls to fit in piping for the master bathroom

Got to take a break! Shoo hard work!


So as you all are going through winter there... we have summer time weather here! Lily had to break out her bathing suit and a bottle of water and she just had a blast with cold water!

Pure bliss!
Levi wanted to join in the fun but decided not to when Lily dumped cold water on his head!

The team also helped out at the local school and were honored by the community for their work

The team visited David Lagat's home and were given kalabash (a decorated gourd)
Went on a small safari to Nakuru Game Park

Such awesome sights of the city from up on the KICC building!

Thank you for your visit UCCS/Wingate. Thank you for your help! We pray the Lord blesses the work of your hands and all that you do back at your colleges!
