A very big question...
How to start talking about Kenya?
That is a very BIG question.
The people we encountered:
anxious to learn
certain of the existence of God
full of questions
hungry for more resources
honest about their struggles
worshippers of God
dependent on the Holy Spirit
hot and humid
15,000 or so people
corn fields under coconut trees
mud huts for homes
hundreds of tiny shops
welcoming to strangers
call to prayer heard five times a day
African Leadership and Reconcilation Ministry - ALARM
doing important work
excellent staff and volunteers
willing to push where biblical perspectives aren't yet embraced
missing each of them - sad we live so far apart from one another
The Father, Son and Holy Spirit
The one who made our time in Kenya possible.
The one who brought the mix of people together.
The one who prepared the way.
The one who will bring fruit to bear.
The one to whom all glory and honor and praise belong.
