i met Dr. Mendonsa during my first couple weeks at CURE. I had heard rumors of an american doctor who had come over to kenya to work for CURE and had started a children's home... I knew from the moment i began hearing about it, that i wanted to be apart of whatever it was they were doing down the mountain.
After i had settled in a bit in Kijabe i made my way down to Maai Mahiu and instantly fell in love. thirty something youngsters all adopted and clothed as "the future leaders of kenya"!! i say thirty something because Naomi's Village is constantly growing. Every time i go down there, i meet new babies, all unique, all with individual stories, all rescued and shown the powerful redemption of Christ ! See the Mendonsa's have a vision about a generation rising up, these kids are being trained up to believe they are difference makers, leaders, and most importantly sons and daughters of the KING!! These are the faces of the children who can and will change Kenya for the kingdom! So powerful !
Meet the Mendonsa's ( Bob, Julie, Emily, and Will )
i have been beyond blessed to call NV my second home. when i am not working at CURE you can usually find me at NV : ) ! The mendonsa's are so kind and loving and have not only offered their time and their lives to the children of kenya but to me as well !
The two beauty's below are my sidekicks Amy and Rachel.. they both have given a year to NV. to serve the Mendonsa's, the kids, and they have become two of my dearest friends! : ) ! These two have been game changers for me in kenya.. they are a huge answer to prayer and i am so thankful for the big hearts they have to serve and love people !
NV is currently in need of sponsors. If you are interested in being apart of the NV family please e-mail rachel at email@example.com here are all the ways you can help!
sending major hugs and kisses from kenya xoxo

Mission: To lift the lives of those in need.
"Crux is latin for “The Cross” which symbolizes the greatest and most life changing event in history: the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Our goal is to create change in people’s lives like Jesus does. He changed everything and altered the course of history. We create change by fostering a customer culture of meaningful commerce and contributing to great causes." - Ryan Frederick founder of CRUX
Crux was birthed out of a passion for people and the idea that each individual is valuable; along with their creative expressions through style. However, style and creativity for their own sake are empty. There is more to life than looking and feeling cool (at least that’s what we believe). We aim to help people to express their own personality and style while helping others in the process!
To fulfill this belief, we have partnered with some amazing non-profits and contribute 10-25% of each Crux Watch that is sold.
Need a new watch? check out Crux here !

The last couple of weeks have been filled with wild adventure! The girls and I took a weekend trip to Uganda and rafted the nile.. it was by far the coolest thing I have ever done! so much fun!! Then last weekend, we decided to tackle the volcano here in kenya, called Mt. Longonot. It was really really hard but so beautiful once we were at the top. The rim of the volcano alone was 7.2km ! We were exhausted !
WE MADE IT*!!!!
BUT BARELY! : )
But now its time to say goodbye to my friends : ( They have been an answer to prayer and a joy to be around for the last two months. I will miss them very much, but am excited to see what the Lord has in store for them back in the states and at their universities.
so now its just me, in kenya, hanging out with the baboons : )
oh and this lil guy too !
God is so good, He is giving me countless opportunities to Love people and learn how to be completely dependent upon him. As things start to settle a little bit, and visitors begin to return home, I have a couple ministries I really want to look into and become a part of.. one is Naomi's Village, which is a orphanage down in the rift valley and another is Project six 1 , which helps a internally displaced people group here. More to come on both.. stay tuned!!
ohhh and a picture of this lil guy.. just b/c he's adorable!
