Life-changing Moments

You know when people go on humanitarian aid trips and see things that change them forever? I had [another] one of those moments a few weeks ago.

After an amazing trip to southeast Asia for a month in Nov/Dec, including a 5-day stopover in Israel over Christmas on the way home, I'll shortly be heading back out to Africa!  This trip will be three weeks, and in the same region (Siaya, Kenya) as I was back in October.  Really looking forward to seeing some familiar faces and getting to know some new friends.
