Last year two wonderful people were married in August 2012, in Kenya. Celmali, a friend who I met in Kenya, though originally from New York City, was married to another friend of mine who founded and runs the Inspiration Center in the Mathare Slum. After knowing them each individually and then getting to know these two as a couple, with Shem, I was privileged to be at their wedding in Kenya last year. Since getting married they had promised to come to the USA, however the complications of Moses getting his visa to come (even though they were married!) was a slow process and seemed to delay again and again each month. However, last month they final were cleared to come and I got to hang out with them both as Celmali took Moses on a tour of Time Square!
They are now visiting churches and organizations that support the Inspiration Center in Seattle and Denver. In November I am looking forward to seeing them again before they return to Kenya. You can follow the inspiration center blog here.
