Those In Between Moments

Our time in Kenya is going by so quickly. We our team has spent a lot of time preaching, teaching, learning, and listening to the Word of God. That’s why we are here, to share the good news of our Lord Jesus. 

While we are here the daily needs of life continue. Some of the very special moments are the in between.  The unplanned events…

Walks to the river to get water. Each one carefully carrying their jug of water back home. 

Helping in the smoky kitchen as the ladies work hard to make everyone food. I will admit I think I’ve become a pretty good good chapati maker. 

Teaching the kids and youth how to play wiffle ball.

We were ready to go one day and the vehicle needed gas. So we got out and played with the kids. Sitting in a circle, bare toes pointed up to the sky singing, clapping, laughing. 

Getting our hair braided by the hotel housekeepers. As we visited with them about family, their childhoods, their work and Jesus.

These are just a few short examples of moments here in Kenya. 

If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies,

Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.

Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.

Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.

Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

Philippians 2:1-5

The next few days we have plans in the city and the slums. Your prayers are much appreciated.
