My emotions vascilated from delight to sadness. Why should a ten-year old boy be bearing such a heavy burden on his small shoulders? While I contemplated a response, he looked at me and smiled once more then added, "I love Jesus!"

We held hands and prayed together and then I gave him a big hug. He walked away with a look of great satisfaction on his face as he disappeared into the crowd. Several minutes later as our van drove from the soccer field, he was standing by the gate. He waved us down, walked to my window and said, "I will come again tomorrow!"

The manacing Hyercinth weed that has taken over the beaches and shoreline rendering access to the lake that is the source to the famous River Nile impossible is only one of many problems that the nearly 2000 residents of this tiny Kenyan village have to deal with. There is the devastation from HIV/AIDS that rendered many households orphaned or widowed. Then there is the perenial drought, lack of clean drinking water, on and on.
