Saturday, October 26, 2013 – EAMO Day

One of the highlights of our trip is a visit to see the children at EAMO.  We participated in the service, had lunch and arrived in Kericho, the tea capital of Kenya.

Here are some pictures from today.  Everyone had a great time.

Ralph gave a history of the orphanage he founded.

We arrived in Kericho, the tea capital of Kenya.  This evening we had a great meeting as people shared their experiences.

Karen Leung and Joanne Rowland are with us for the night and shared their work with children who are undergoing surgery through our support.  They are so passionate about their work.

We celebrated Warren Schnoor’s birthday.  Last year he was here  for his 50th with his entire family except his oldest daughter.  Stevi is here this time to celebrate with him. Warren manages Kericho area projects. His personal and corporate philanthropy has been a great blessing in moving forward many projects.
