Cole Caldwell went to Kenya with Mocha Club in May/June 2010. Here he tells us about his trip.
Hello there. I’m Cole. I’m a fifteen year old guy from Oklahoma. I recently went to Kenya. I thought it was going to be terrible but it was not. It was amazing. And believe me, when I first went I was dreading it, but it was the best experience I’ve ever had.
My favorite part in particular was Kitui. It was “eye-opening” to see how these kids live each day. While I was there I met a kid. He was so young he couldn’t tell me his name. That kid alone changed my life. We visited his house and it was terrible having to leave him to that life. I’ve thought about that one kid everyday since I have been home.
Not only was the trip awesome, but the people we traveled with were great. I got along with every single one of them, and I miss them all. I will be friends with them for the rest of my life.
If you are debating on whether or not to go on a mission trip or to support the Mocha Club, ask yourself this question: Do you want to save a life?
