Off to Kenya

Yesterday (Monday) we had a recap meeting with local staff and I met with a key lay leader / pastor leader from the largest denomination here in Nigeria, Redeemed Church of God.  The top church leader of one or two of the five areas wants these sessions for his pastors.  So…we are discussing coming back this year in the spring or fall and doing sessions for 1,000 pastors in addition to sessions for workplace leaders.

Got up at 4:00 am and met with a group of 12 business leaders.  Now re-packing for the airport and the trip to kenya.  Got a good nap with the fan on, but now I’m sweating in the humidity as we’ve had the power out for several hours.

Will leave this evening and fly overnight to Nairobi, Kenya.  I have wanted to visit Kenya for 20 years and planned to do so in the early 90’s, but never did.  It was one of the most stable countries in Africa until tribal riots two years ago.  I am looking forward to seeing Simon, my host, after 10 years and meeting Nancy, Kenda’s daughter of 20 years thru Compassion, during the time here.

After what I have experienced in Bethlehem and then Nigeria, I cannot see how the trip could be much better, but I am expecting and praying that God will move mightily.

So thanks for your prayers as we fly to Kenya.

The fan just came back on after a 90 minute black out…feels great even if it is just moving hot air!
