Called to Kenya

There was a lot the Donalds didn’t know about Kenya in the beginning. Like, for instance, that it was a place where wheelbarrows were precious and hung in trees to avoid being taken. That it was a place where drinking water was so dirty it resembled chocolate milk. Where the government charged for public school but didn’t provide basic infrastructure like roads or electricity.

It was a place the Donalds would come back to not once or twice — but four times.
During those mission trips they developed water sources and worked with local populations to find lasting solutions to pervasive problems.

For their efforts, the people of Kenya gave them life lessons in return.
