Over winter break, Colorado State University student Wesley Wyatt went on an alternative break trip to Kenya, which gave him the experience of a lifetime and a whole new perspective. After about 24 hours of travel time, he arrived in a town called Archer’s Post and received an overwhelming welcome from the two women’s tribes that reside there: Unity and Umoja. Though Wyatt was a little shocked by the change in culture, he expressed feeling very humbled. After two weeks of eye-opening emotion, transitioning back to daily life in the U.S. was a challenge that took a few weeks of adjustment. Wyatt made friends he will never forget and formed relationships that opened his heart to Kenya. If you’re interested in participating in this alternative break trip to Kenya, the 2013-2014 registration deadline is March 26.
