It has been a fun, very busy several weeks for the US based Know Think Act team! We have had the awesome privilege of hosting Peter Ochiel of Action Ministry as he was our featured speaker at the This Is Love Banquet. Peter flew back to Kenya on Wednesday, and we wanted to share some of his adventures and a summary of his trip. So without further ado, here is a photo tour of Peter’s trip!
It started by getting put to work immediately upon landing, helping us build out the displays for the This Is Love Banquet. Peter was a champion and a tremendous help as we all got the space ready for the event.
The hard work was amazing and the banquet was a great evening of learning more about Peter and his team’s work in Blessed Camp, Kenya. We were able to raise a lot of money for the feeding program for their community! If you’d like to give to that need, you have that opportunity here.
Two days following the banquet Peter got to fly to Indianapolis, IN to spend time with some of his friends at a church up there. They had a great visit and we are so glad that Peter could spend time with that church community who supports Action Ministry.
Peter then got to spend some time just enjoying the Music City and being in the Know Think Act office, working on projects and collaborating with the team.
Peter then drove down to the Gulf Coast with Travis Gravette, to visit some churches and share more about the work that is happening at Blessed Camp, along with what the Sassers will be participating in when the join Peter in Kenya. Travis made sure that Peter got the full southern experience, even letting him participate in a Civll War reenactment.
As soon as Peter and Travis returned from the Gulf, we got to work on the Launch Party for the new KnowThinkAct.com! But first, we got to take Peter on a tour of the Tennessee Titans stadium, even taking him into the locker room. Peter loved learning more about American football and the “civility” of football fans vs soccer fans.
The night ended with the Launch Party and Peter got to again share about the tremendous work he and his team are doing, as well as just celebrate the new website! It gave him a chance to cut loose with the team and celebrate with friends.
We love when Peter visits us here in the United States and had a great time with him, but we also know he was excited to return home to Mombasa, Kenya and see his wife as they get ready to welcome their second baby boy in the world. Safe travels Peter, and we look forward to being with you again soon!
