The Key to Team Life

Being part of a team is so great, because you get to see the body of Christ needing each other. We encourage each other. We share holidays together, [and we] watch how God is working in each others’ lives.
On Fridays, I hang out at the maternity ward and make relationships with those staff members. … They’re so impressed that I’m learning Swahili, so they’re always willing to help and visit with me.
I think I’m the only female rider in all of Kwale! When I first got it, a few guys spun around so quickly to see who was on the piki that they actually fell over. I think the women are the most impressed. I get cheers as I go down the road! It’s a blessing… when it works. It builds relationships, though. Every time it’s broken down, people have to help me. It’s like a ministry itself!
