A few of weeks ago, my wife, oldest daughter and I went on a mission trip with our church team to Kenya for 10 days. The first part was a medical mission in the outskirts of Nairobi. The other half was providing livelihood like sheep, hens, etc. and feeding of almost a thousand people in a camp for those who were displaced by violence in the Great Rift Valley. It was a life-changing experience to see the needs and how these beautiful people cope up. Before going back home, we spent a week-long vacation with a few friends and visited Athens, Ephesus and Istanbul. Here are some of the photos. Enjoy.
