Short Summary

My Name is Stan Otieno Ogwel. I was Born in Kenya and Moved to the United States at 8 years old. I remember quite a lot about my early childhood in Kenya but as i’ve grown i’ve missed it as well. I lived the American Dream (From an African Standpoint) I got to Play Baseball, Football, Went to the Prom, Went to College, Joined a Fraternity and Promoted lot’s and lot’s of Parties..

What I’m wanting to do with my campaign is to make a short documentary on the life i’ve lived out here and the life that I missed out there. I will be interviewing Americans and Africans around my age group to compare and contrast about the different timelines of our lives since I left Kenya. While doing that, I have a social project that I want to incorporate duriing my trip as well. I want to be a Blessing to a few people who I haven’t even met yet. I need your help in order to make that happen.

Feed The Homeless / August’s 1st Bday Weekend

Easter Service 2013

I want to start out by giving thanks to Jesus Christ for being our Lord & Savior.

My family & I went to the Fountain of Life House of Worship in Phoenix this weekend for their Easter Service.

Their arts department put on a play that was magnificent and very moving. This was our 1st Easter Service together with our son August The Great.

Is I grow, I’m thankful and happy to have Christ in my family’s life. We continuously grow and I get new revelations on how to be a better Husband, Father, Son, Brother & Friend.
