let me introduce you to some friends of mine.
i met some of the most incredible teenagers tonight. and it’s not because of their attendance or their grades or their achievements in sports. it’s because of their faith.
in the fall, these kids were introduced to Kibera, Kenya through a video created by their teacher during her trip last summer. they fell in love with their peers thousands of miles away and mentioned the idea of actually answering the call and going to help.
an idea turned into action because of these kids’ faith.
these kids truly are Joshuas and Calebs in a no-name world. in a world where people will most likely look at them like they’re crazy, they are standing tall. in a world where most kids their age save money for a new car or prom tickets or the latest fashions, these kids are brainstorming ways to get to Africa – because they want to help others.
they know love conquers all, and they are taking a risk. a risk so many adults would hesitate to take.
but, no one tells your story better than you – so i’ll let you see (and hear) for yourself.
