Our first Sunday back was wonderful; the gathering being filled with people excitedly sharing all that God had been doing while we were in the U.S. . The first three guys with ties were men visiting from Nairobi.More on them in the next blog. It was so much fun to be welcomed home by the StoneHouse church family. Lots of hugs and hand slapping greetings were popping everywhere. News ranged from how some folks had really begun to spiritually change for the better to the fears some people still had. We are growing in number and our home groups have increased from seven to eleven with about five to ten people per group attending.
Talk about great reunions….
There was lots of hugging and smiles everywhere.
These ladies have been very since busy since we left!
My wife Cynthia and these industrious ladies are beginning to produce some real marketable products. We are now in the process of getting the right documents to start a business selling homemade crafts.
Already Nakumat and other business have said they would be interested in selling some of the ladies wares. Pray we can quickly obtain the proper documents to begin selling these ladies’ crafts.
We visited our primary school this week photographing the next group of children in need of assistance to attend/keep attending school. All of them are so sweet. We are hoping and praying for new sponsors to choose a child and enable them to get the one real hope of leaving the slums…. An education. Here is a practical way for our thoughts and our Father’s to be realized in the lives of these children.
Here are four cuties that need a helping hand. From right to left they are Mishell, Ivy, Awadi, and Tina.
More and more of the employees in West Side Mall where we teach each Saturday are asking if they can visit our church. One of the food court employees, twenty three year old Lavenda, is coming next week to have dinner with us. She told us she doesn’t have a mother and father and needs to talk to someone about her life. We are so looking forward to being with her and sharing over a good home cooked meal.
