In December of 2018, Brea and Sandie Oravec were blessed to join the Bells for two weeks at Mahali pa Maisha. A lot of time was spent loving on the babies at the Infant Rescue Center.
A highlight of the trip was being able to help with a health clinic in the Inkito village. We were able to share the Christmas story with the children from the point of view of the shepherds, being that the Maasi are shepherds.
Although the infant rescue center is the focal point of Mahali pa Maisha, there are also other ministries that radiate outward. One of those is working with area villages to help establish a fresh clean water supply for the children and the rest of the village.
In 2013, my husband Kim and I traveled as part of a mission team from our church to Kenya to serve alongside the Bells. After two weeks of falling in love with the ministry and babies of MpM, the rest of the team left and Kim and I stayed for a few days longer. The joy I witnessed the day after our team left will forever remain one of my sweetest memories of the trip.
