10 Days ’til Takeoff

Making a list, and checking it twice! (but it’s not for Santa).  

In 10 days we leave for Nairobi,Kenya to serve as host and hostess at Amani Gardens Inn,

an international guesthouse for Eastern Mennonite Missions. 


Amani, Swahili for “peace”, is a beautiful, relaxing oasis serving

East Africa travelers and mission workers for more than 50 years!


We are excited about this step in our faith journey as we follow God’s leading.


Please join us in prayer that we:

– Stay focused on Jesus not just the journey

– Pack appropriately for climate and country

– Stay healthy

You are invited to a Commissioning Service and send-off Fellowship Meal:

Leake’s Chapel Church of the Brethren

    Very happy for both of you. I am excited to follow your experience. I love Africa and have spent 2 tours in Swaziland . I stayed at a Nazarene Hospital Mission post both times; and one in Calcutta run by the Baptist. One meets such interesting Christians – most volunteering . God bless you both.🙏🏻
