Nakuru’s Family Grows

You are all those kids want

By: Edita, Co-Director NakuruIMG_0832

My name is Edita, I am a Co-Director at the IHF Nakuru centre in Kenya. I originally come from Lithuania, but for the last three years I have been living in different European countries due to studies and work. It has been only two weeks since I became part of IHF team at the Nakuru centre. These two weeks were full of new experiences, small cultural shocks and a lot of positive emotions.

WP_20160114_18_16_28_Pro (1)It is my first time living and  traveling outside  Europe. Therefore many things are totally new for me. I am happy to have daily cultural exchanges with the children living in our centre. They also help me learn some basic words in their local Kiswahili language, and in return I help them with their homework.

Working here in the centre is like being part of a big family were everyone tries to help each other and

Friend of God

True friends know each other on an incredibly deep level, Beloved….

Soul Food by Innate Expressions

Listen through my heartWe don’t know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit himself speaks to God for us. He begs God for us, speaking to him with feelings too deep for words…” (Romans 8:26 ERV)

The beauty of relationships are that you don’t always have to speak in order to communicate.

When you have a sincere relationship with someone, there is a connection…….you just know!

  • Before a child comes down with the flu, most mothers ‘just know’……that their child is about to get sick!
  • Distance, cannot deceive a true husband or wife if their significant other is having a ‘down’ day, …….they just know!
  • Lies don’t stand a chance between true best friends, because one can read the other like a book!

Question:

Would you walk up to a stranger and ‘spill your guts’?

Probably not!

  • They would probably think that you were ‘special’ if you did!

Inspiring story of a clever boy who put his trust on his father.

Wow

INFLUENCE TABLOID

A little boy and his father visited the country store, upon leaving the store the owner of the store offered the little boy some free candy. “Get a hand full of candy” the merchant said to the boy.
The boy just stood there looking up at his father. The owner repeated himself, “Son get a hand full of candy, it’s free.” Again the boy did not move continuing to look up in the face of his father.
Finally the father reached into the candy jar and got a hand full of candy and gave it to his son.
As they walked back home, the father stopped and asked his son why he did not grab a hand full of the free candy.The boy with a big smile on his face looked into the face of his father and said, “Because I know that your hand is bigger than mine.”
Whatever…

This is a salute to all the soldiers out there especially the ones who have braved the toughest of the weather(s) measuring up to -53 degrees to protect us.

What I Learned on My International Mission Trip-stop criticism

At times be realistic, for as much as we live a life similar to yours 100 years ago (that’s is if you existed), why talk ill of that place that gave you food and shelter for 2 and half weeks! We may be living in a house made of sticks and mad, but the difference between us and you is colour.
The chicken, ugali and sukuma is part of our culture. Did you expect you’ll find pizzas and all that trash in interior Africa, take what is set before you and appreciate!!
We thank the almighty for saving us from the bondage of sin and if you come to Africa with that negative motive again, I don’t welcome you!!
This is Africa and respect our culture and way of life.
I hope those kids that made you a “celebrity” read this article, they will have a reason never to call others that.
Don’t be an hypocrite!!!!!
BE THE CHANGE THIS AFRICANS YOU MET NEED!
If you saw a gap, do something to fill that gap rather than posting how you were about to cry thinking while shopping!!
Kenya is and Africa is big and full of resources!!
>Wildlife
>Culture, like the maasai whom attract tourists from everywhere.
>Good climate
>Mountains and water bodies.
> and many more.
Our traditions and way of life is our culture, and if you saw a gap fill it rather than posting on your blog.

BE THE CHANGE, AS YOU SAID WE DON’T NEED YOU, YOU NEED USE FOR WE HAVE ALL THAT YOU NEED

Am proud to be African

Haley Samantha

In the summer of 2014, I had the amazing opportunity to travel across the world to Kenya, Africa for two and a half weeks. I never imagined what I would see, experience, and learn during those long two weeks and began learning and being tested from the moment we got on the bus to travel to Dallas and continued even months after I returned.


1. Things may not go as planned

Each person was allowed to have one personal suit case and the other two that we carried were full of supplies we needed throughout the weeks and items like clothing we planned on giving to people in the country. When we arrived at the airport in Nairobi, we soon discovered that not all of our bags made it. Our team did not receive around twenty of our bags because there was a glitch in the computer. I was one of…

I had to reblog this, after all its end month

Like a time stamp in your heart

I write books so they live long after I am gone.

nilichoandika

My mentor sessions have resumed and I am taking a break from a meeting at work to share this.
Last year was remarkable for me, I published books that people actually read and felt compelled or moved by them so much so that some called me to discuss what the book did to them. I mean, for any writer or Creator to simply have that kind of feedback is a great accomplishment.

And what next?

My mentor asked me what I had in mind this year after publishing the books and he started with three questions that I believe every young writer who is breaking into print needs to ask themselves.

1. Why do you write?
2. What do you expect to achieve out of publishing?
3. How will you go about achieving or realizing 1 and 2?

The Currents Series saw three books released via Amazon Kindle last year…

Remember that imprint you left on this heart?

Background 

Here’s to the women in the background.

Pulchra Veritatem

Here’s to the women in the background.

The ones who hear the phrases

“I’m in love with you, but…”

“I think I’ll leave her for you.”

“You are the one that got away.”

“I missed out on you.”

But never gave in, never gave up on real love, and never used his confessions as an excuse to be the other woman.

Here’s to the women who push those men to be better than they were by being brave enough to call them cowards for running from love, responsibility, and honor.

Here’s to the women that the others may despise because they see what could have been, not what she chose.

Here’s to the women that wear the crown because they’ve humbled themselves to be in the background.
