Who are we?

Welcome | Bienvenue | Kaze |Karibu

We are two teenage girls, but likely not what you’re thinking of. We’re TCKs (Third Culture Kids), or MKs (Missionary Kids), whose parents serve at hospitals in rural Burundi and Kenya. We’ve also both lived in France and the USA/Canada. Currently, we’re attending a Christian boarding school in Kijabe, Kenya called Rift Valley Academy. And that’s just the beginning. So welcome to our real/crazy/awkward/adventurous lives. We’re so happy you’re here.

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.

Matthew 28:19-20
