Apostolic Journey 2016 Part 3
Well, for those of you who want to see and hear about the final segment of our Kingdom Journey …here it is. Our last day in Wamba, Samburu was spent visiting a remote gathering of people out in the bush. It was a beautiful drive out to the little building, but to our dismay, there was no one there when we arrived.
But shortly, a young lady came in and began beating the drum. Suddenly children started appearing out of nowhere. After about ten minutes some adults showed up and we began to share bible stories. All the children loved it. These people have no watches or clocks, not even a concept of what day it is. Yet, when the hear the drum… they know to come and gather.
After an hour or so of sharing, we took some pictures of our new friends and headed back to visit a church in Wamba that James had started years ago. We got to speak the message of the Kingdom of God to all who were there and promised to return later in the year for more.
After the gathering, we were became very tired as night was drawing near. When I looked at the sky and said to the guys… we need to leave early tomorrow because it’s going to rain. And so it did.
That night.. it poured, thundered, lightning… the whole works. We grew concerned that we would be caught in one of the river beds that were prone to flash flooding, so we decided to leave early in the morning in the pouring rain.
The trip home was awesome albeit a little scary. Before we made it to the paved road an elephant ran across the muddy dirt road right in front of us. He was only the first of many wild animals we would encounter coming home.
There were some minor overheating car problems on the way home, but we made it to Nakuru safe and sound. It had been an incredible 7 days. Seven days and seven new commitments to begin church families. Now… comes the real work… follow up! Please continue to pray for us as we advance the Kingdom of God in Kenya.
