Daylight kids love it when people come to visit. The times when “Mzungus” (Swahili for white person) show up are sure to be exciting weeks! Full of sharing stories around cups of tea, singing songs, and playing games. Students learning about what school is like in America, and the Americans learning about what life is like for kids in Kenya.
For the next two weeks a team of 18 people of all ages from First Presbyterian Church are going to smile, hug, serve and laugh with the children and staff of Daylight Kenya. They will be installing in a new water reservoir system, teaching english, and handing out hugs (like Rachel wrapping up her old friend Joshua Kimpur). Keep them in your thoughts and prayers for the next two weeks as they serve in Kenya.
Whether the visitors are coming to build a new classroom, teach English, or just add another friendly face on the soccer field, Daylight kids are excited! Excited to meet new people, practice their English (“HOW ARE YOU?” “I AM FINE!” is a popular first phrase), and say a big THANK YOU, JAMBO ASANTI SANA!
