Jumapili (Sunday) is a big day here. Last night, we fell asleep and woke up to the sounds of all-night church services. It is common here to spend all Sunday at church.
So far it’s been another unforgettable day. The girls have been resilient and curious all trip, and have never shied away from experiencing Kenyan culture. This afternoon, they played soccer with the KOCC kids.
Speaking for myself, I know I will have fodder for thought and reflection for decades to come, and I suspect the girls will find similarly.
Each evening, the KOCC holds a “parade,” a time when all the kids and staff members meet to exchange motivation, news, and well-wishes. Tina shared a poem at this one – a beautiful verse reflecting on being present in the moment – that sums up the trip for me so far.
