An American Christian’s adventures of the heart as an adopted grandmother, "KOGO" of Kenya’s Pokot Tribe


"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.
