 Last year I lived in the town of Kakamega Kenya for a little over 6 months. In April of 2016 I returned to visit some missionary friends I made while there the previous year. It was an incredible time, full to the brim of joy and fond memories. I didn't photograph the town much last year since I walked most places and my camera was heavy (and I didn't want to flash it around too much). So this year I was a little more intentional about capturing the streets that became so familiar to me.

A special Thank-You to the dear people from England and the US who have become like family. They ensured my time in Kenya was extra special with a little birthday dinner on a rooftop restaurant overlooking Lake Victoria. They truly mean so much to me and I'm very thankful for their friendship.

Birds of Kenya

 I just returned from a brief visit to Kenya and Tanzania. I did some ministry there and got to enjoy the beauty of those foreign lands. Western Kenya is known for it's huge variety of unique birds. Here are a few I was able to capture with my camera.

There's something about coffee - not just the tastes, but the traditions with the invitation of friendship and opportunities to engage in life with others. It's engaging and warming, much like the friends I like sharing it with. Ethiopia produces some of the most magnificent coffee in the world, in fact the very name comes from the Kaffa Province in Ethiopia where it was first discovered years ago. I had the amazing opportunity to visit Ethiopia in July 2015. 
Here is my attempt to share the experience with you.

The cups were small but packed with the most smooth and delicious coffee I've ever experienced.

A Day in the Canyon

 The sun illuminated the horizon and beamed across the sky, creating shafts of light flickering in the mile deep canyon below the Southern Rim.

 Exploring new places and hiking new trails has to be one of my favorite things.
