Haiti team travel update

On Wed, Jun 20, 2018, 8:23 PM Tammy Terry <terryt> wrote:

I requested a team picture before they boarded the plane.

I got nothing.

All day I have attempted to reach the team for a travel update.

Crickets.

Haman called me letting me know there was “drama” with the airlines and the team was in Boston.

I was happy to hear he was aware.

I made yet another attempt to contact the team.

Crickets again

But then this just 30 minutes ago:

“Oops. My bad. No power on phone. We went to my niece Ayanna’s. We have slept, went to eat watched TV.

I’ve already shot a nice nasty e mail to Jet Blue for their failure to notify us of gate changes which caused us to miss our plane.
We now have to be at the airport at 4am. Luggage being sent back to Boston.
We have to redo through TSA etc… We are fine. Best group of women to ever have a crisis with!💞”

And so let’s continue to pray and praise God for our Haiti team:

Kenya Team Report – March 19, 2018

Hi Rosedale

It’s been a very exciting week! Saturday was an orientation of the facility and Dorris filled me in on much of how PACE works here at the school and how the children fill there days. Sunday was filled with church services – the first with the school children in the morning and they lead with songs and Scripture! Wichura gave the message. We later went over to the community church where we held children’s church all the area children’s churches came together to worship (over 200 kids!) followed by fellowship and a meal.

A couple of other days Miriam and I worked in the clinic (Miriam being a nurse) to care for minor health issues that were had by the children at PACE. We also each taught a health/hygiene class one day to the girls – I had the primary girls Miriam had the high school girls.

Wednesday all of us met with the community seniors for a Service at the church. It started with an exercise class warm-up. Then, they went into the church for much singing and praise, a message by one of the pastors there, followed by having Miriam, me and Mary taking the seniors blood pressure, weight and blood sugar. Lastly, they were provided with a a meal and fellowship.

Thursday was a Service for the staff at PACE led by Pastor Greg in the morning (he gave a really good message) and we met with the 20 students that The Lakes partners with to spend some time getting better aquatinted.
That evening the team headed over to the school cafeteria to serve dinner to all the students.

I will follow up later with John’s and Pastor Greg’s highlights after dinner.

Blessings,
Julie Snyder

Global Impact – Pray our Kenya Team home!

To all of you who have been praying for the Kenya Team these last two weeks:

They are on their way home and this last stretch is always the hardest. They are tired of planes, buses, cars and are thinking of sleeping in their own warm beds tonight. Let’s make sure we are right there walking with them these last few steps of the way. Pray the pilots understand the precious souls they have been charged to transport home. Please pray they get some rest on the long flights home. Pray their family is at the airport waiting for them as they make their way through customs. Pray they have heard God say “well done” in serving our Kenyan family.

Paulette’s flight is scheduled to land this Afternoon at 4:10pm and Iris is scheduled to land tonight at 11:47pm.

Global Impact Kenya Team update – Seniors again… The enormous vision of Kenya

We visited the AIC Salient church where Wachira Ngamua is Pastor. We were told to expect 60 Seniors, where we would take weight, Nurse Renee and Dr. Kenya would do blood pressures and address health concerns. Well, of course word went forth, and by the end of the day we serviced over 65 women and over 20 men! It was such a blessing to be blessed. The people, even with the language barrier were so warm and inviting. Personally I felt at home. There are times when God reveals the truth of understanding in quite unique ways. We were suppose to have our journey with the Seniors for two hours. Four hours later we were saying goodbye.

I cry when we leave the elderly, mainly because I know they walk far to visit with the team… They need medication, attention, and love. Many live alone, and this opportunity means the world to them.

Global Impact Kenya Team update – Children and Seniors…All in one day!

So… What have you done lately?😉 Well, one day I took a early morning ride, down a highway. The driver turned down a dirt road where chickens and goats we’re roaming. Stopping the vehicle in front of a beautiful school… I climbed out, along with a great group of people who all smiled when we stepped out of the Van. The beautiful landscape, brought back memories…

Noticing a group of children quietly sitting on the grass we smiled, waved hello and immediately was met by teacher Mr. Moses. After introductions were spoken, we toured these groomed grounds and buildings, all the while the children say still on the grounds.

This is the center (school) for the cognitively impaired students. I have never experienced a group of children so we’ll behaved, cheerful and well mannered.

We served them bread and juice. But before the serving they sang for us (prayerfully the video will come through)
We thought this was our blessing for the day… Stay tuned💓💓

Global Impact Kenya Team update – Continuation… The Seniors

After a wonderful visit with the children’s school, and by the way I forgot to tell you… Seeing the roof that Pastor Greg (as he is so fondly called) and his dad helped to put on one of the school buildings and the water tower brought back memories… (See photo)

Now, as we drove away from the children we are turning yet again onto dirt rickety roads…

Now, we are driven onto a small grassy road. We stop, descend the Matatu… I smile. This is my place. I find my refuge here. We are at the Senior Citizen Community building. I am in love. The affair had been many years. These are my people.

We come in, to clapping, and then singing with beautiful drumming. Mostly women this trip… They were wonderful. The Pastor spoke words on never giving up, how these are women of prayer. How God has returned some of the children back to their parents after 15 years. These women are women of prayer.

Later our Sister Marva spoke and blessed the hearts of the women.

After service Nurse Renee took blood pressures, weight and gave advice on helping them to maintain their health.

We served loaves of bread (for take home) and sodas. Later they were served Ugi (a high protein drink).

We were so completely blessed!!❤️❤️❤️❤️
