I have arrived safely in Kenya and have even had a little time to rest this afternoon. I will be departing shortly to pick-up the rest of the team from the airport.
This is an exciting week coming up as we prepare for Vacation Bible School (side note: it is called Holiday Bible Club or HBC here). The HBC will allow us to share the story of Jesus with childen from 2 communities while working alongside volunteers from 2 different local churches.
Pray for our team over the next couple of weeks. Pray for safety as we travel. Pray for our Kenyan partners and team members as we serve and encourage them. Pray for the children that will attend the HBC next week. Since our time here last year, both churches have grown in numbers and in spiritual maturity. I am excited to see what the Lord will continue to do.
Most importantly, pray for the connection that is forming between the two local churches here and the church from Texas. Pray that the Lord will continue to strengthen theeir hearts for one another. Pray that the Lord will make the partnership possibilities clear and achievable. It is a joy to be a part of connecting God's people with God's work in the world. We appreciate your support and prayers.
