Deborah Barnett

This summer, I have served in several different parts of Kenya, both urban and rural, working on various development projects and spending time in child development centers. I have learned so much from the people I have encountered. One thing I love about the people I have met, is that they know how to just be. How to enjoy life as it happens. I have met people who press on, daring to live in the hope of Christ, no matter whether they live in a one-room hut in the mountains, or in the crowded streets of Kibera slum. Each of the many different people I have met have each left me with a special treasure: a piece of their lives and their stories that inspire me to live with hope in my everyday life, no matter the situation. God’s grace is sufficient.
