Back home from Kenya!
Our team has returned from Kenya with full hearts and wonderful memories of our time at Happy Life Children's Home and Juja Farm School! It was another great trip this year with a wonderful team. Our hosts at Happy Life were so pleased to have us back and said how thankful they are for our teams from Texas.
We were able to bring 12 large suitcases full of donations this year and were also able to purchase many needed items in Kenya with the generous donations we received including food, medicine, diapers, wipes, school books and supplies, two cook top stoves and a refrigerator for one of the new homes at the Juja Farm school, and a commercial dryer for the Children's home...and more! Thank you to everyone who generously donated and allowed us to bless Happy Life with these much needed items!

We all had so much fun feeding and loving on all the precious little babies in the nursery...and playing outside with the older babies and toddlers between feeding times.
The mothers SO appreciated all the extra helping hands!
It was a special treat to meet baby Cindy! I was so honored to have one of these precious babies named after me!

It was an extra blessing to see my sponsored child and little sweetheart Jesse Kay from last year, and little Gideon from 2 years ago. Gideon came to Happy Life so small and failing to thrive, but is doing much better and is growing and finally learning to walk, thanks to all the loving care of the Happy Life staff!
We enjoyed our visit to Happy Life Juja Farm School and playing with the school-aged children for an afternoon. These beautiful children captured everyone's hearts as they sang songs and had fun taking lots of pictures with us!
It was great to see the progress on the construction of the new Jesse Kay Medical Center and get a tour. What a beautiful facility which will be a huge blessing to Happy Life and the community! It is close to completion and scheduled to open in November.

We are so thankful for the opportunity to partner with this wonderful organization in caring for and loving on these precious orphaned children!
