Just finished helping with a medical mission trip to the Massai of Western Kenya. We also distributed clothes while we were there. I picked this kid for the Bama sweatshirt I had, he was thrilled.

What's that on top of the vehicles? Cargo rack???
1984 300ZX Anniversary Model, 1970 Olds 442 W-30 & Pepper Bird
The vehicles were Toyota Land Cruisers used for safari. The tops lifted up so you could stand and take pictures of animals from within the safety of the vehicle. We worked seven days and went on safari for two.
Doing your part as a champion in Africa. Well done.
That's awesome. I am surprised that we didn't see any of the children wearing LSU and Notre Dame national championship T-Shirts.
That's great !!!!
Cool, good work.
Btw...Did you see anyone wearing a Notre Same 2012 national championship t-shirt or hat?

Interesting story from the trip. I wore a Bama shirt on our last day to see if I could get any comments. We are sitting in a coffee shop in Nairobi before our flight home and a guy comes up and gives me a Roll Tide. He was from Enterprise, AL and had moved to Nairobi years ago with his family to work for a non-profit help organization. Cool guy doing much needed work whom I never would have talked to if I wans't wearing a Bama shirt. RTR!
Awesome stuff. Roll Tide!
That's awesome - I'm headed to India in early June for discipleship - told the wife we will be taking a few Bama shirts for the kiddos.
Very cool. Thanks for sharing.
Makes me proud man!
Is that Maasai Mara? I spent three months in Kenya a few yrs ago working at a hospital in Bomet called Tenwek. It was a life changing experience.
Yes, that’s where we were! We worked from a clinic run by African Mission Services located about 5 miles west of the Western Escarpment of the Rift valley on the Migori-Muhuru Rd. A beautiful place with beautiful people who are poor beyond our comprehension but are also very content and happy. I grew up on a farm in Alabama and love the Massai herding culture. I came away feeling very blessed to have met and worked with such wonderful people. Sound like you had a similar experience.
Very similar experience. Thanks for the post. it brings back some great memories. I met my wife while I was there. We both just happened to be on a mission trip to the same location.
on a side note:
have ya bumped into Obama's fam while there ?
Funny, but while we were there his cousin was defeated in the presidential election.
