Reagan duo leaves for Kenya with gratitude, and shoes….

Shaye returns to Africa on a second mission

In our modern society, it is easy to become isolated and self-focused.  Preparing for this trip to Kenya has been a profound reminder that when we exist within a community, our lives are richer.  The response to our upcoming trip has been overwhelming.  Our friends, family, church family (and even some strangers) have given money toward this trip and, ultimately, for the children of Rehema Home.  In addition to many, many individuals, the Catholic community of the Wellsville area and the greater East Rochester community were instrumental in us collecting 255 pair of shoes in all sizes, countless packs of socks and underwear and some goodies to take to the missionaries on the field.  Our gratitude cannot be contained in words.

Shaye and Harrison Reagan

For anyone who would like to see updates to the trip, please follow the Facebook page titled Rehema-Kenya Trip.  Our trip is from June 7th to June 17th.  We will post updates as internet access allows.  In the meantime, we covet your prayers as we journey across the ocean to the beautiful land of Kenya and meet these beautiful children of God.
