"Wow! Wow! Wow! Talk about experiencing God! I saw God today through so many eyes; from medical, to dental, to education and most important, salvation. What a blessing it was to be the answer to someone's prayer, as it was an unforgettable worship experience. The team and I moved Faith Forward in Africa, sharing the love, life and lordship of Jesus Christ." - Nadine F., Camp Floater
"My experience today with the Loruko community, in Isiolo, was an experience I will never forget. I literally felt God throughout the community regardless of the fragile huts the people lived in. In essence, our souls connected, like no one I've ever connected with before!" - Kim E., Medical
"We were five medical providers and we had a lot of help from translators and team assistants. On average, we saw over 100 patients with different kinds of ailments including: intestinal worms, wounds, fungal infections, cataracts to corneal lacerations. We treated them and it's our prayer that God heals them. We are looking forward to serving more patients tomorrow and we hope that we will offer more than medical support." - Elizabeth & Christina, Medical
"Today the triage/education team had the honor and privilege of being the first to extend the love of Christ Jesus to the people of Loruko. We were blessed to distribute 140 medical and dental service bands to local villagers. Our education team shared the Gospel, in addition to teaching HIV/AIDS prevention. We planted the seed and God got the increase as approximately 20 people either rededicated their lives to Christ or accepted salvation for the first time." - Kim W., Triage/Education
"Watching the Lord move in the dental area was a blessing, not only for the guests, but for me as well. How the Lord anointed Dr. Mike's hands was amazing. He performed each extraction effortlessly. I am excited about what tomorrow and the next few days will bring as we serve in honor of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ." - Meresha C., Dental
"Before today, I had no experience distributing medicine. I must admit, I was a little anxious about working in the pharmacy when I got my assignment. But God is good and He equips those who yield to His will. What an awesome experience to see God at work. Before I knew it I was pulling medicine for the pharmacist with ease. I just thank God for giving me the opportunity to help the Samburu people." - Thomas S., Pharmacy
"Today was an exciting and exhilarating day. I started today with some uncertainty about how I would react on my first international mission assignment. Driving through the Reserve and seeing the elephants, giraffes, gazelles; and seeing the beauty of nature. It was an awesome experience seeing the organization of the camp once we were on the ground. I'm really looking to tomorrow to see what God is going to do." - Min. Alonzo W., Education
