Merry Christmas from the Hansens

He has made everything beautiful in its time.  He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.  
Ecclesiastes 3:11

We’ve spent this past year dividing our time between two continents.  Between March and August, we were able to spend time with family and friends back in the United States, making new memories and sharing about some of what we’ve been able to see God doing in Kenya.  It’s been nice to be back home in Kenya and back to the work God has given us here.  We’ve celebrated the graduation of two pediatric surgery fellows.  Erik’s been grateful for the help of visiting surgeons who have invested in the training program and the care of so many children here.  Amanda has been providing reading support for the elementary school at Rift Valley Academy and investing in a number of children there.  

We are reminded during this Advent Season of the truth that God has set eternity in the human heart.  He became like us to provide all of us with a way to eternity with him.  We are so thankful for His eternal sacrifice and the chance to be His hands and feet as He brings His hope and His healing to children and families throughout East Africa.  

May you be immensely blessed as you rest in the hope of His Eternity.

Erik and Amanda Hansen
Kijabe, Kenya
