STORY BEHIND THE PHOTO: Picture Praise, 3/14/11

The picture was taken during a ceremony here at Olderkesi [Kenya]. We have a training school for pastors (for men and women who have not been past 8th grade, and just want to mentor others). So this little girl was just one in the crowd at the graduation ceremony, and having a fun time showing off her new hairdo!

photographer: Vera Steury, Kenya. "My husband and I have been in Kenya now for 24 years. We work with the Maasai tribe in a remote area of Kenya. We do community-based health care (immunizations, HIV/AIDS counseling, clean water projects). I teach Sunday School, homeschool my own kids, and run a small guest house. My husband was born in Kenya as a missionary kid. All three of our children were also. I finally started a blog ( It's stories of experiences we've had all these years. I just wanted a forum to tell those stories. We put out a prayer letter, and that tells how our ministry is going, and our mission has a page for each of its missionaries, so I didn't want it to be that repeated. I am also starting a Bible study for a gaggle of 'house maids"-- girls about 12-13 years old who kind of get lost in the shuffle of life out here. So that's pretty interesting shuttling back and forth between three languages!"
