Guess Who's Back...

Brandon got home last night from a 16 day trip to Kenya, and a few people were pretty happy to see him.

As soon as I lay hands on some pictures from his trip (Who goes to Kenya and doesn't take a single picture? My husband, that's who.) I'm going to spend a couple of posts sharing with you exactly what his trip entailed. Several people who read this blog contributed financially for Brandon to make the trip, and I just wanted to take a minute to say Thank You. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you. Our church ponied up about $24,000 and some change to send this group to serve, and the participants, including Brandon, raised the remaining amount themselves.

He has too many stories, about too many people, for me to tell today, I'm hoping I can convince Hot Brandon to guest blog a bit next week. One thing he did a lot of in Kenya? Shopping.

He may have done it under the guise of "supporting local small business owners", but non-the-less, Brandon came home with a brand new suitcase filled with beaded jewelry and purses for his girls, and bows and arrows, spears, shields, and swords for his boys. All four of the kids got drums.

All four of the kids got drums.

Brandon's officially never leaving the country again.

No machetes????

Let me guess..... "Hot" Brandon is NOT spending the rest of the summer working at NASA helping them solve a trajectory problem they are having on the new spy satellite????
