Americans have wealth, but not always happiness. That’s one of the lessons that a group of local young people including Sierra Lillard, left, and Bella Bussian say they learned from their recent trip to Kenya. Lillard holds Regina, one of the younger children at the orphanage where the Durango-based contingent served. Parents of children at the orphanage have died of AIDS.

Two pieces of store-bought bread and a hard-boiled egg are a rare treat for students at a school run by Spring Valley Baptist Church, located in a slum near Nairobi, Kenya. Most of the students get only two meals a day that the church/school provide. From left, Carl Sallee, Ally Betts and Amy Raulston of the Durango-based contingent serve the meal.
