"Kogo" is the Pokot word for "grandmother."
The Pokot people have a great respect for their older family members.
Since famine, disease, and lack of water are great problems in West Pokot, to live long enough to become a grandmother is considered a blessing from God.
To be considered an adopted Kogo with them is a personal joy.
I'm a wife, mother, and grandmother who loves the Lord Jesus. I have a special place in my heart for the Pokot people of Kenya.
In our hearts, my husband, Sam, and I have an adopted Pokot Son and Daughter, Rev. John and Ruth Lodinyo from West Pokot. I have made several trips there since 1999, just doing what The Lord puts in my path for Him.
I belong to Seacoast Church in Charleston, S.C. My passion is to see The Great Commission completed, so Jesus will come for His Bride.
I hope you'll join me on my adventures in Kenya with the beautiful Pokot people.
Together, we can bless them with prayer, help, and friendship.
