Laura, a member of our Residence Community just recently visited Kenya on a mission trip with Trenches Community Church. Her journey took her to a place called Naomi’s village which is home to 80 orphans. At Naomi’s Village, orphaned children are provided with love, healthcare, nutrition, education, spiritual care and individual counseling through sponsorship and volunteers. Some of these children are left parent-less by terrorist attacks, AIDS, disasters and domestic violence.
Laura spent 2 and a half weeks volunteering her time at Naomi’s Village where she learned how to not take the things she has for granted. She pointed out the the children, despite their trials and tribulations as such a young age, found joy and happiness in the littlest of things in life.
After Laura’s visit, she has been inspired to pursue and internship with the village and has even sponsored a little girl named Lucy.
