Corporate manager Steve Peifer and his wife were riding the dot-com success wave of the '90s when they lost their 8-day-old baby to a chromosomal disorder. How did they move from this tragedy to a position in Kenya providing daily lunches and solar-powered computer labs for over 20,000 African schoolchildren? You'll be riveted by their story! 336 pages, hardcover from Zondervan.
Steve Peifer and his wife agreed to be dorm parents at a school in Kenya for a year to escape their grief over the death of their infant son. But a one-year experiment prompted a personal and family pilgrimage that transformed a seemingly ordinary middle-aged American man, husband, and father into perhaps the most unlikely internationally influential hero youve never heard of. Until now.
Steve Peifer serves as Director of College Guidance for Rift Valley Academy in Kijabe, Kenya. He established a rural food program in 2002 that provides lunches for 20,000 Kenyan schoolchildren a day. He has also built the first solar-powered computer-training center in Kenya, and is now developing twenty computer classroom labs for rural schools. For his work on behalf of Kenyan children, he was awarded the CNN Heroes Award for Championing Children in 2007, the 2007 Yale Counseling Award and the 2010 NACAC Excellence in Education Award. Steve and Nancy have four children.
