“Up, Up and Away!!”

Tomorrow, Tim and I will be getting on a plane and flying to Kenya!! We are embarking on a two week survey trip to prepare for our family to move to Kenya, come this summer, Lord willing!    

Some things we hope to accomplish are: looking for a potential home to rent, “window shopping” for furnishings, necessities to set up a home, looking at vehicle options, visiting the school in which our kids will be attending (West Nairobi School) and meeting teachers, staff and getting them enrolled for the upcoming school year. We will also spend time with our team leaders, Dan and Nancy Germo defining and developing our ministry plan, finalizing our budget and beginning to orient our lives for when we hit the ground and begin ministering and living in Kenya. We will post throughout our trip over the next two weeks, and maybe even a few pictures too!   

Several prayer requests during this time would be:

1. For our children as they remain back here in the states, under the care of several friends and their grandmother.  Please keep our kids in your prayers.  Specifically for their physical protection and health, peace while mom and dad are gone, no fear or worries, harmony amongst each other, and God would begin to fill them with dreams, ideas and to reveal His plan for their lives.   

2. For us as we "see" Kenya through different eyes, this time around.   It is definitely won’t be the type of trips we have taken previously over these past 13 years. We believe and are confident that God is preparing the way for us, every step of the way.  

3. We covet your prayers as we continue to make important decisions, especially in regards to our new life there. We want God’s wisdom, His direction, His leading, His guidance and to be filled and equipped to do what He has called us to do!   

Thank you for your faithful prayers and support!  We are blessed by you!   



  1. I am humbled, honored, joyful, and excited to be praying for you and your family in the weeks ahead. Blessings, Glory and Honor to our Lord above.
    Thank you Kelly family for being His hands and feet.

  2. Prayers and peace as you get lots of direction and answers!
