:

Riley Unlikely is the inspiring story of Riley Banks, who first traveled to Kenya at age 13, and has been back every year since bringing backpacks of school supplies and hygiene kits for young girls, developing relationships and friendships, and is currently, as a young millennial, raising money to build a complete learning complex in Kibwezi, Kenya for those who have nothing.



At age sixteen Riley learned that, because of a rare medical condition, she would never be able to have her own children. Devastating news to most young women, especially those who love children and have always dreamed of having their own family. But Riley's response was: Kenya has given me a thousand children.



Riley's stories of her trips to Kenya, her struggles to figure out how to best serve and care for these people she has fallen in love with, and her own unexpected health issues are funny, compelling and gripping. Readers will find that God writes surprising stories in the lives of those who follow Him. Hard to put down, Riley Unlikely will inspire you to pursue your dreams and make a difference in your own world-and around the world.

Illuminating
4 stars By Fiona, May 16 2017
Walk through, touch, see and feel the mission field through the eyes of a teenager.  In this book you will experience the unexpected and walk away learning much more about yourself, how blessed we are. Easy reading.  Life is so much more when we live it for others.  And this book exemplifies just that, by simply living for a greater purpose.
