Today, we say, 'Bon Voyage' to our minister, Rev. Helen Kirk and ten other people from around the UK as they fly off to Kenya with the Aylesbury-based charity, Karibuni Children. Each member of the group has either paid their own fare or been sponsored by friends. They will spend a week visiting some of the projects that feed and educate children from Kenyan slums and streets and a working week decorating and refurbishing some of the classrooms. The group will also be taking the over-filled 15 extra cases of clothing and goodies donated by members of our own and other congregations. Alas, co-founder Joy Murphy could not make the trip this time but continues to recover from her stroke. Our thoughts and prayers are with Joy and her Kenyan-bound team.
