Traveling with Daraja was an absolute blessing for me. There is something incredible that takes place when you travel for close to 3 months with the same 35 people. What happens is you become a family. There’s nothing more enjoyable than seeing the bright smiling faces of 23 Kenyan children every morning, trading hugs, sharing laughs and worshiping together throughout each day. Through their genuine care for myself and others, these children of The Daraja Choir allowed me to catch a glimpse of God’s love for His people. It was through their encouraging words, powerful embraces, wall-to-wall smiles and selfless actions that I began to understand not only how it felt to be genuinely loved but also that this was something that I too was capable of. The relationships that are built, with not only the kids but also with your fellow chaperones , are ones that I have no doubt will last a lifetime and to me, there’s nothing more beautiful than when the body of Christ, His church, comes together from all around the world for the purpose of making Him known!
Much love because of Him,
