We drove to Lodwar after the dismissal of the Bible School. The first day in Lodwar, we picked up the first team of Feed the Hungry, who were coming to document some of the things they are sponsoring in Turkana. On the second day, we drove to a small village called Edos where we talked with the people, interviewed children whose lives have been changed, and distributed food packs to the people. After returning to Lodwar, members of the Feed the Hungry team went with the Bishop and two vehicles to pick up the president of Feed the Hungry, Pete Summral, and additional team members.
The next morning, we all loaded into two vehicles and drove about an hour into nowhere to a small village called Sopel. Here we met with the children of the school, did a feeding of those children, spoke with the village elders and village residents, and did a food distribution of maize and a dry soup mix. It was a long, hot day - and a real experience. While we were in Sopel, a young school girl came and began talking with me in the Turkana language. One of our interpreters was close, so he came and told me what she was asking. She asked me what disease I had that caused me loose my color. She was so sincere and caring in her request! I just smiled.
The last day in Turkana, we returned to Edos to feed school children, do more filming, and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It was a successful trip - we found two and possibly four young men who want to come to our Bible School in the fall. It was such a great experience - and i honestly can't wait to go back!
