Meeting God in Kenya

The following testimonies are from girls that recently came home from one of our Expeditions trips to Nairobi, Kenya! We are very excited to share their experiences with you:


Traveling for ten days to Nairobi, Kenya, I was overtaken by the fact that the same God who loves and cares for me so deeply, feels just the same towards my brothers and sisters across the globe. Never once has He left the people feeling forgotten or abandoned. He comes through, He provides, and He never leaves us feeling hopeless. He is always consistent and reliable even when we are miles away from home and in an uncomfortable territory.

Watching the leaders in Kenya love their high school friends and remind them of these truths was one of the most life giving experiences.

If I could travel with my friends in Young Life time and time again, I would!

This trip was truly a blessing.

I am so thankful for the opportunity I had to go to Kenya and learn from, engage with, and serve the wonderful people there. Personally, my favorite part of the trip was getting to interact with the leaders and kids involved with Young Life. It was cool to see that despite the numerous differences between us, we all still worship and love the same God.

These people taught me so much and were also some of the funniest people I’ve ever met. Their happiness was so contagious and I loved every minute I got to spend hanging out with them. Below is a video from an all-day YL camp. As you can tell, everyone is beyond happy to be there and worshiping God.
