Joy Murphy, Karibuni Children's co-founder is off to Kenya again this Wednesday. It will be the second time in twelve months. "But the visit last September," explained Joy, "was more of a thanksgiving and reassurance trip. Here I am after my stroke. I'm fine. Thank you for all your prayers. On this trip," said Joy, "I will be visiting all 13 of the Karibuni projects in Kenya, including two on the coast." She will be joined later by Karibuni Chairman John Cotton and another trustee. The visits are essential to assess on the ground, how the Karibuni money is being used and what the current and future needs will be.
At this Sunday morning's service, Rev. Helen Kirk prayed for Joy and her visit, and asked her to take the congregation's love and prayers with her.
