I definitely needed Africa more than Africa needed me.
Remember me? Hi! My name is Cookie, and I am an intermittent blogger. Sorry about that. I really am, but I have to submit to constant monitoring or I will allow my expectations of myself to grow large and woolly and mammoth with big, sharp teeth.
So, two really major things have happened in my life this fall, and I would love to catch you up in small doses, if that’s okay. Back in October I led a women’s study on Five Lies of the Devil, and it was soooo soooo fun to do my teachin’ thang again. AND now I am fresh off the plane from Kenya (and glad to have both feet planted firmly on the ground again, thank you very much!), and I can barely talk or think about anything else. I have exhausted all of the peeps in my fam and circle with my endless, “In Kenya…” comments; I have forced a slideshow and presentation on Carson’s second grade class, and I’ve worn down my Facebook friends with pics and video, so I turn to you as a new venue 🙂
Obviously, we’ll tackle Kenya first and come back to Five Lies.
For those of you who aren’t NewSpringers, my church has partnered with The 410 Bridge (you should watch the video on their site) to invest in the people and community of Segera in Kenya – a partnership that will send teams and resources to the same area over at least a three year time frame. We have sent three teams already and have five trips planned for 2010.
PS – Thank you, Kristin, for the awesome pic!
