Trouble in Kenya

Kenya is currently in a state of unrest. Hundreds have been killed in fighting over the disputed election. My dear friend, Elizabeth, and her daughter, Turi, went to Kenya to visit family before the holidays. As a result of the fighting, she has been unable to leave the country. They have lost everything they have and are currently being supervised by troops and police, however they are desperate to get back to the United States. At this time, we are currently raising money for anyone interested in participating to assistant Elizabeth and Turi.

I met Elizabeth while serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Elizabeth and her daughter were baptized and have remained active and faithful members of the church. She has worked as a stock trader, registered nurse, and most recently as the Project Vice President of "The African Water Project".

We are hoping to have a money order sent in the next couple of days. Please let me know if you are interested in contributing.
