A Virtual Trip to Kenya for School Leaders


The warm Swahili greeting we hear while visiting World Vision programs in Kenya rings in my ears when on a Vision Trip. I am always overcome with joy when receiving the warm reception from community members. I treasure the chance to play with sponsored children.

We here on the World Vision Ignite team have missed hearing that in real life, since the pandemic has throttled travel for us all. With that in mind, we took great joy reliving the experience with some close friends in Christian education through a special webinar: a Virtual Vision Trip to Kenya.

If you missed the webinar live, you’re in luck. You can watch it here on YouTube.

My thanks to my friend and coworker John Sadler, my co-host. Also a big thanks to Samuel Gamusa, our friend and coworker in Kenya, for telling us stories about children we’re helping and for sharing his perspective about COVID-19, and much more.

But most of all, we are grateful for the school leaders who took part in the experience, and for your ongoing commitment to engage your students in the world, to live out the gospel by loving others.

In the webinar, we featured three videos from Kenya, featuring commentary from students at Faith Lutheran High School, the largest private school in Nevada and the first partner of World Vision Ignite. To give you even more perspective, we’ve produced this new video about what’s happening at the school, an inside look at the larger partnership of Faith Lutheran.

We’d love to hear from you – please reach out anytime at [email protected].
