When we travel to Nairobi, Kenya and march fearlessly into the depths of the slums, we are rewarded. We are rewarded with a tangible sense of who God is. Our glimpse of God in the smile and hugs of orphans, widows, and those suffering is more than enough to leave us motivated to help. After going, seeing, touching, and crying alongside these mighty individuals, our hearts are changed.

  When our students cross the threshold of Go Near Ministry they are never the same. Nor are we as a school. Go Near incarnates our biblical worldview training in epic ways. As the love of Jesus is showered upon Kenya, our students are drenched in the grace of God and bring home the blessing to our school community. Softer hearts, extended hands and brighter eyes! This is the stuff that translates the truth of biblical worldview into real Kingdom living.

I will never forget the beauty and heartbreak I saw in Kenya. I felt so near to God’s heart when I shared in His love for “the least of these.” I experienced God’s faithfulness as I watched Him meet basic human needs. The joy I saw in every child’s face is something that will never be taken from them despite their circumstances. What I experienced in Africa was absolutely life-changing.
