Joy on the Journey

When the Spirit leads, only those who hear His voice can truly follow. We have prayed for eyes to see and ears to hear, and through His veritable grace and mercy He has answered our call.  We pray you will partner along side of us as we engage in a cross-cultural adventure that honors the beauty and sanctity of the Gospel while answering the call of the Great Commission. God has woven a dynamic, sustaining friendship between three sisters in Christ, united by His love and the love for His children at KDS. Follow along our journey of Kenya Children's Fund with Jane Njuguna, Kenyan Managing Partner, Ginger Palm, CEO and President, and Jennifer Serafin, Educational Consultant and mentee of Ginger Palm.  His holy Word tells us, “Two are better than one because they have a good reward for their toil, and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.”  Ecc. 4: 9, 12

We believe the Spirit is leading us to communicate what we are learning from the people and events that God is using to influence and transform our lives through this blog.  Our ministry, Kenya Children’s Fund, supports the Kinyago-Dandora Schools (KDS) in the heart of the slums of Kinyago-Dandora.  It is so dear to us that we consider it not only a home, but sacred ground as we witness the work of the Holy Spirit.  The Lord has blessed the last 25 years richly, and He continues to grow us.  As we engage with the community, we want to share our passion with you so that you will be inspired as well.  

While we will post on a monthly basis, there may be times where we post more often as the Spirit leads.  And occasionally, we will invite others to share from their faith journey and experiences as we are encouraged by what is important to them.   The Lord has put some very special men and women on our paths to challenge and teach us.  There is so much joy in the “iron sharpening” process that builds and edifies the Body of Christ.

Some of the most precious words will be written through the eyes of our own KDS children.  They have such profound lessons for all of us!  He is leading us on an exquisite journey, and we invite you to join us! 

For His Precious Ones,
Ginger, Jane and Jennifer
