One thing I’ve learned this year is celebrate and be thankful for the specific moments of joy we experience in life. Each one is a gift. Gratitude has the power to change our perspective of ourselves and the world. When we slow down and remember where we’ve been, there’s an opportunity to acknowledge God’s involvement in our lives and his faithfulness.

Caleb and Anna got married in the UK and began their lives together in Kenya. Don’t they look great!
Brainerd Baptist Church visited and worked with Cornel in Kisumu.
CARE for AIDS moved into the new office in Limuru. Our lovely accountant Dwanna married her husband Nick in Kenya!
Kyle Flora joined the CFA team as a media consultant. Welcome, Kyle!
The Nuru Center class graduated after 9 months at Full Gospel Baptist Church.
Client Michael Mwaura shared his story and became a trainer at CFA centers.
Our Kenyan team outnumbered the US team. In the US, Justin had the opportunity to learn from Chick-Fil-A CEO, Dan Cathy.
“Sisters of Death” aired in local NTV media in Kenya about women selling ARVs for food to feed their children. Cornel responded with CFA’s mission.
Nia Baker and Jenn Stewart joined the CARE for AIDS team!
This was a busy month. CFA graduated their 2,000 client! Cornel and Duncan visited the US for the annual REWRITTEN Gala and visited with many of you!
Regional Coordinator Robert and his wife Lucy got married. So many weddings this year!
Our college campuses began fundraising as chapters of CFAU, ready to become the leaders of tomorrow.
In the US today, we celebrate the legacy of civil rights speaker, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. who said, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” It has been amazing to watch at CARE for AIDS as we’ve come together across continents and oceans to participate in justice and new hope for those who had been forgotten or ignored.
This year has been busy for all of us with both victories and challenges, but we know that there is still work to be done. We’re so thankful for what God has accomplished and will continue to do in Kenya, the US, and in our lives. Thank you for being a part of that work. We can’t wait to see what this next year brings!
What will you remember from 2012?
