Could you be an MPO…?

Mission Personnel Opportunities (MPO) are generally available here in Kajiado but are they a blessing or a burden?

When we went out in 2002 we had planned to stay for at least 6 years but then when Naomi fell ill we had to come back home earlier to allow her to regain her health. Little did we think it would take this long and it has been a challenging time for all of us, to say the least. We praise God that Naomi is now beginning to show good signs of recovery and she is at last on the long road to recovery.
