Recently, I was given an amazing opportunity: the chance to join my daughter on a trip to rural Kenya.
When I was asked if I wanted to take this trip a couple of years ago, I didn’t know much about it, or what to expect. I only knew we would be observing the progress the Unstoppable Foundation has made toward building schools and sustainable communities with the resources I had been contributing.
“Sure,” I thought. “Why not?” It sounded like a fun adventure, something new and different.
I soon realized it was going to be much, much more than that. By the end of my first day, I knew that this was going to be an experience that would change me forever.
Within moments of landing at the airstrip in Narok, Kenya, we were greeted by James, a Maasai Warrior. With his beaming smile and warm welcome, I liked him right away. We arrived in camp and were met with singing and more smiling faces. In fact, smiling faces were a constant theme throughout the trip.
