A friend and I recently took a drive around urban KC. If you haven't done that in awhile, you might be surprised by the number of boarded up buildings.

Lira Update

Daily Faithfulness. Radical Transformation

Jun 9, 2015  |  Trace T.  |  GO Africa, GO Project, GO Project, Villages  |  No Comments

We went to Lira today to visit our partners and the children in their care at The Father's House.

Fate, Family, Future

May 29, 2015  |  Trace T.  |  GO Africa, GO Project, Trips, Villages  |  One Comment

What is the fate of a poor, HIV-positive, orphaned child living in AIDS-ravaged, rural Africa? Unfortunately, for many this is not a hypothetical. Their lives here end all too soon, but that is not "Dani's" story. Dani does fit the profile above. His mom and dad were both victims of the global… Read More

Ocho Chicos
