FRED MCAUGHTON – Lisa is in Kenya with Rafiki Africa . Rafiki Africa has a school on their campus in Alendu, Kenya. Most of our students at LightHouse Academy are orphans and come from families where there is no access to education. The families make less than $1.00 per day. At LightHouse the students receive Christian education, 2 meals a day, after school and holiday programs and all school supplies. You have the opportunity to support some of the students on a monthly basis. We’ve included photos of Merab and Samantha. Check out more of Lisa’s photos at the WJTL facebook page and listen to her past reports at our WJTLCasts page. And of course, stay tuned as Lisa continues to bring us live reports.
A fairly typical road-side scene
Grace, our group leader from the Compassion office in Uganda, and me at the Nile. She was absolutely amazing!
Me touching the Nile!!
This girl was so cute! She was almost shaking out of her outfit during the dance and song they did for us. I got to interview her and gave her a headband for her to keep. So precious!

Me with Geoffrey and his family in front of his home.
This boy was adorable! He came up to me and said “Good Morning.” I was so excited that he spoke English, but I quickly realized that was all he knew how to say, and someone had told him to come tell me that.
These trees looked like they belong in a Dr. Seuss book
