Korie Robertson Accompanies Daughter To Somalia

@legitsadierob and I were asked to help deliver food to 50,000 people in the midst of a severe drought in Somalia along with @bobgoff @michaeldeanmcdonald @lovedoes and @worldfoodprogramme_official so of course we said YES! We spent 3 days there and fell in love. The hope-filled work being done in a difficult place was incredibly inspiring, life-changing. We flew out of Mogadishu yesterday morning and landed in Istanbul to find out that there was a massive truck bomb (not even a mile from our hotel) just after our plane took off that shook the entire city. Heartbroken! Reports say it’s the worst the city has ever experienced. I’m almost home now and still can’t find the words. The death toll continues to rise. It was at 276 the last report I saw. Thinking of our new friends there. The mamas, babies, teenagers…strong, kind, beautiful people. I had a post written before we learned of this tragedy that I’ll save for another day. For now, asking for prayers for the victims, their families, our friends. The country is in mourning. God be with them. #prayformogadishu “Because the poor are plundered and the needy groan, I will now arise,” says the LORD. “I will protect them from those who malign them.”” ‭‭Psalm‬ ‭12:5‬

Korie Robertson was accompanied by her daughter Sadie Robertson on her most recent mission trip. The Duck Dynasty wife traveled to Mogadishu Somalia with World Food Programme. The pair helped deliver food to over 50,000 people, and then barely escaped a devastating terrorist attack.

Korie wrote on Instagram, “We flew out of Mogadishu yesterday morning and landed in Istanbul to find out that there was a massive truck bomb (not even a mile from our hotel) just after our plane took off that shook the entire city.

Sadie echoed her mother’s sentiments. She wrote, “They have been through more in life than many of us can understand, but stronger then many of us will ever be. Today they were hit again. Hard. Nearly 40 people already found dead. Please pray. my heart is broken.”

Positive Views

Sometimes when you say yes to things that scare you, you end up surfing in the Indian Ocean!! #bucketlist 🌊 When I told people we were going to Somalia I could see the flash of fear roll across their face, but I know this: Love is always greater than fear. Fear makes us stay home, Love causes us run to. Fear makes us weak, Love makes us strong. Fear strips confidence, Love breeds courage. Fear hinders progress, Love takes the next step. Fear makes you rude, Love is kind. God says, “Do not fear,” God is Love. Fear reacts, Love acts. Love is in action in Mogadishu, Somalia. The boys in these pics have had really hard lives, but they now have something new to add to their story thanks to @elmanpeace @wavesforchange and @lovedoes They are learning to surf!! And we got to join them their first time out! How cool is that!!

However traumatizing their departure was, the Robertson girls are still looking at the trip with a positive view. Korie posted pictures of a surfing adventure she and local boys had while on the trip. She said, “the boys in these pics have had really hard lives, but they now have something new to add to their story thanks to @elmanpeace@wavesforchange and @lovedoes They are learning to surf!! And we got to join them their first time out! How cool is that!!”

Korie also admitted that she was fearful when embarking on the trip. She said, “When I told people we were going to Somalia I could see the flash of fear roll across their face, but I know this: Love is always greater than fear. Fear makes us stay home…”

We couldn’t agree more. Furthermore, we are inspired by Korie Robertson’s fearless attitude.
