During her time in Kenya, MJ worked with Africa Inland Mission's International Children's Consultant, Carolyn Cummings.
helped MJ navigate exhaust-filled, crowded streets and cramped city buses.
They made their way through muddy, pot-holed streets, dodging traffic, and arrived at a Ghetto Education School
There MJ assisted Carolyn
in teaching a preschool Bible class with crafts and she
learned a Swahili song.
During a Sunday church service with MJ and Carolyn Cummings
in attendance, the pastor had the material all dedicated to the glory of God.
MJ recalls: "At the end of the service, two chickens were being auctioned off for a special project.
The black chicken was given to Carolyn
as thanks for speaking in the service that morning.
Laughing, I said to Carolyn
, 'I am not holding that live chicken all the way to Nairobi!'"
