Wally in Kenya with Blood Water Mission: Day 3 Posted on April 23, 2014 @ 01:18 PM under Wally-Vision

The internet is crazy slow and unreliable here, but what can you expect people still live in houses made of sticks with no electricity or water? I can really only upload one picture from today.  So if the saying a picture is worth a thousand words is true, this one speaks volumes.  This is why we are here.  This is the water the people drink.  It is no wonder so many kids gets sick and die.  The hardest part to accept about that is it is preventable, and when we get home we will tell you how.

 

Please keep sharing these posts.  We want to come home and help as many of these people in Kenya as we can.  Talk to you soon.  Internet permitting.

Wally in Kenya:Day 2 Posted on April 22, 2014 @ 11:16 AM under Wally-Vision

People always ask me what is my favorite Bible verse and I always tell them John 11:35, “Jesus Wept.”  I am not trying to be funny because it is the shortest verse in the Bible.  I love that verse because of the story behind it which I will get to in a second.

We started today by flying in a tiny single engine plane to get to Marsabit.  One problem, my wife is terrified of flying.  I spent the last two days asking God to give her peace to get through this.  I got emotional just after take off as I saw Mardi talking to the Pilot and actually laughing.  He had managed to put her at ease, and I just sat there and thanked God for that.  The way this ties into John 11:35 is Jesus wept when he saw the hurt that Mary and Martha had to go through after their brother Lazarus had died.  Jesus knew that they had to go through that moment of sadness first before they would see God’s power and be witness to His greatness.

 

 

I knew Mardi was going to have a life altering experience but she just  had to get through the thing that terrified her first.  I am happy to say she did great and even flew the plane for a couple minutes.

 

 

We landed on a dirt runway lined with rocks in the middle of the desert.  You could not accidentally stumble upon this place.  Which means we have to be intentional about helping people.  I love working with Blood Water Mission because the meet the physical needs of people as well as share Jesus with them.

 

 

These faces are why we go to such difficult places.  They need water and Jesus.  It is a privilege to help them get both.

 

 

Along the way we would hear people shout at us as we drove past them on the dusty , we’ll be kind and call them roads. I asked Claire our host what they were shouting.  She said they were asking for water.  This kind of leveled me.  No one I know needs to beg on the side of the road for something so basic like water.  It was a powerful reminder of why we are here.

 

We stopped under the shade of a tree to have a snack and I noticed a woman on the side of the road whom we had passed moments before. As we prepared our snack I knew I had to take her some water. How could I not? Here was the "least of these" staring me in the face. Think about the last time you were so thirsty you thought I am going to die. Obviously you weren't and you could solve your own problem. The people here do not have that ability, but the good news is we have the ability to start changing lives for families here immediately. Please keep sharing the story and pray about helping out during our "Tanks Mom" event with blood water mission when we return home from Kenya. Also please excuse any typos or or half post as we keep losing Internet and I'm trying to type this all the giant thumbs on an iPhone

Back in Africa with Blood Water Mission Posted on April 21, 2014 @ 10:45 PM under Wally-Vision
Wally-Vision

You know you are in Africa when armed guards search your vehicle just to enter your hotel.  Africa is my second home. It is a different world here, but one that I love. 

 

We arrived late and spent the day acclimating and are now preparing to fly to Marsabit to see the work Blood Water Mission is doing there with the hopes of helping mothers in need get water for their families. The Internet , and sadly bathrooms, will be sketchy from here on out, but please follow along and share this with your friends as we really want to make this a special Mother's day for the moms in Kenya.

 

 

My wife is terrified of flying in big planes so the upcoming trip in a single engine 5 seat plane is freaking her out a bit.  She sent a prayer request to 20 people at 3 a.m. in preparation.  The up side is this will certainly bring her closer to God:)  If you think about it please toss up a prayer for her today.

 

 

The next time we post we will be in the desert in Marsabit seeing first hand what life is like with limited water.

Congratulations to the happy couple Posted on April 04, 2014 @ 05:40 AM under Wally-Vision
Wally-Vision

Somehow a rumor got started that the new WAY-FM afternoon show, Carlos & Joy, are dating. It might have come from our show but I can't confirm that.

 

We thought it would be fun to send them a thousand congratulations on their upcoming non-existent nuptials.

 

So click on the Save The Date card and congratulate them by writing on their Facebook wall, but be as vague as possible because we don't want them to know that we're messing with them. Something like…

 

"Congratulations you two. Can't wait to see what the future holds."

 

(On a mobile, scroll down and hit "Write Post".)

 

 

Hit them up on Facebook or Twitter.
