Adrianne has her Bachelors in Social Work with a minor in Political Science from Wichita State University. She interned with the International Rescue Committee where she resettled refugees from around the world. There she learned her first words in Swahili from her clients (besides already knowing “jambo” from Mean Girls). She is also a Delta Gamma alumna and is passionate about empowering those who are blind and visually impaired.
Trae graduated from Tabor College with a Bachelors in Christian Ministry. He discovered his passion for teaching (and that he was actually good at it) as a volunteer with a youth group where he led a Bible study. After surviving the rowdy middle school boys, he interned with his church fellowship for two and a half years. Trae has worked as a missionary since 2010 in Africa. He started with training in Zambia, but has lived full time in Kenya since 2013.
Meet Bolt & Dash
These furballs are the guard dogs on our compound. Their personalities strongly resemble those of Tweedledee and Tweedledum. Bolt and Dash are always attached at the hip, even when running, and we refer to them jointly as “Fluffy”. Not only do they protect us from giant birds and monkeys, but they are excellent company. Their favorite activities include sitting on our front door rug, watching us cook dinner, and sitting for homemade puppy cookies.
