Kenya Travel Update

June 29 is the Feast of Saints Peter and Paul, two of the Church’s first missionaries. Following in their big footsteps, the Kenya medical mission team met at noon today at Nativity. Father Michael was there to say goodbye.

The mission members and the home team joined hands in a large circle outside of church, and Director of Missions, Brian Crook led the group in prayer. He asked for blessings for the team and reminded them that they represent all parishioners as they spread Christ’s message of hope and caring to the ends of the earth.

Four vehicles then departed for Dulles International Airport in Virginia, carrying the mission members, their luggage, and medical supplies. The group arrived safely with plenty of time for check-in. The flight departed at 5:30 p.m. for Frankfurt, Germany where the team will have a few hours of layover. Next stop— Nairobi, Kenya. There the team will be picked up and taken to a nearby hotel. When they rise, they will journey to the medical clinic in the village of Kiu to begin their duties.

May God be with them on their journey. Keep them in your prayers and feel free to share some words of encouragement in the comments!
