Kulpers to speak about trip to Kenya

Being asked to photograph a Kenyan orphanage was like a dream come true for Edee Kulper. Mixing her love of photography with her dream of doing something in Africa came to fruition. She had also always hoped to travel with her children at some point so they could learn that life is not just America.

They brought with them two suitcases from The Exchange filled with 100 pounds of necklaces and beads generously donated by the people of Orcas Island, and they returned full of the love and joy that the hundreds of orphans lavished on them during their eight-day stay on the rural campus.

The Kulpers are having a presentation on Sunday, May 13 at 6:30 p.m. in the family center across from the main church at Orcas Island Community Church. All are welcome.

If you would like to know more about the orphanage, called Heroes of the Nation, go to htn.org. Edee’s husband, Mike, and her sister, Tricia, have arranged a matching program if you are interested in helping with some desperately needed repairs. To help or inquire more about this, go to website or call the Kulpers at 376-2766.
