For those who might now know, there are several of us across the United States that have taken up a challenge to live similarly to how the Kenyan’s live, especially those that are orphans. We are motivated to do this, to raise the awareness of the needs, as well as to advocate for adoption and support of these overpacked, struggling orphanages.
127WorldWide is a mission organization started by my good friend SaraBeth. Her heart is for mobilization as well as the orphanages in both Kenya, Uganda and other countries.
For 10 days, I will eat like a Kenyan eats, which means water for breakfast, Ugali for lunch and water for dinner. Since I do not have the ingredients or the time to make ugali (a staple in Kenya and other countries) I will be substituting rice.
Today was day one. I am reminded tonight in my hunger, that there are children all over the world, not just in Kenya, who have nothing to eat. I could easily break this fast, go into my kitchen and eat an obscene amount of food. That option is not available to the Kenyans, or other countries. Tonight I am praying for my good friend Rose Bagusa, who runs an orphanage near Kakamega in Kenya. I’m praying for the children that I remember, and for those that are new residents.
