This photo was taken in Kabatini a slum outside of Nakuru, Kenya. This past June I was a photographer on a mission trip with the church I attend here in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
One does not have to travel half way around the world to find people in need. I am employed as a information and referral agent as related to housing. Each day I meet with people that are in need. Many on their last leg.
Extend a hand. Help one another. Do not judge them. Many of us are closer to being in the same state of need than you think. A loss of a job, a medical emergency, a fire, death of a love one…it does not take much today to find yourself in need of help.

This is the message on the photo, in the event you cannot read it on screen.
For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
“The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’
Matthew 25: 35-40*
