Panua Trip, Blog 1: First Impressions

First Impressions
by Evanne Mines

 Our team arrived in Naivasha on Thursday night and traveled to Naivasha Friday morning.

 We had a full day of visiting our Panua prayer partners, visiting one of their projects and taking part in an afternoon meeting on agribusiness ventures.

Some of my first impressions are that Kenyans are friendly people, quick to smile and extend a hand shake.  The Naivasha Panua staff remain a dedicated, Godly group who love their work and the Panua youth seem happy to meet us and learn more about their prayer partners.  

Being here reminds me that God’s love is at work throughout our entire world and life is better when we extend our hands and widen our hearts through Christ-like community.
