Long overdue, but we're excited to announce that Eleeo Project will be hosting Love Africa Mission teams this coming summer. Love Africa Mission is part of Nathan Smith ministries and has been sending nearly 100 college students to Kenya every summer. This summer they will be sending 2 teams to work with us! And the first team will be lead by Nathan Smith himself! Can't wait to catchup with this good friend on African soil!!! If you would like to learn more about Nathan Smith Ministries or Love Africa Mission, you can do so by visiting www.NathanSmith.org or www.LoveAfricaMission.org.

This past week one of our workers had several break-ins at his home. When he and his wife were away, someone came in and took a few valuables.
As he shared with me the frustration, I asked him if I could pray for him. It was a simple prayer, one that I really didn't think that much of at the time. I just asked God to bring back the items that were stolen.
Well, the next day God answered. As our worker was returning to his home, he found a set of keys and a lock underneath the mat at his front door. Isn't that neat? We prayed, God answered.
I know it's a small example, but thought it would encourage you in your own prayer life!

U can find taxis in Lusaka, but if u know how to get around on these guys, you can save a lot of money and meet some interesting people in the process.

He has a varicose vein in his lower abdomen that needs to be fixed. Hopefully we'll be on the road and heading back to Mazabuka this afternoon so he can get some rest.

We always talked with him whenever we saw him, but we're really struggling with how to help. We could give him food and help him in other ways, which we did at times, but God really began to touch Kerri's heart for this boy a few weeks ago. She really felt like we should get more involved in his life. So, we figured we would start by inviting him to church.
The first Sunday, we told him that if he wanted to come that he could meet us in town and we would pick him up from there. And guess what? He was there. And not just the first week, but for the past 5.
It hasn't come without a few twists and turns (boys from the streets often have behavioral issues and need time to adjust to a little bit of structure) but Mike is beginning to really hit it off with some of the other kids while learning a little about the Great Love of the Father.
