Laini Moja

If you remember the post I made when Lisa and I took the orphans shopping, you will probably recognize this place. It is the clothing market on Laini Moja street. It is part of Kitale’s open air market (between the dried fish market and the carpentry open air market).

Buried somewhere in this long tunnel of second hand American clothing is a little lady with a clothing store who wants to know more about Jesus. I met with her this past week. We talked for around an hour and covered the first section of the foundation course. It was on the original sin.  Out of excitement, and humility, she told me there were things I had shared with her about the Bible that she had never known. Although this saddened me, I am excited there are so many things I will be able to share with her about the Word of God! Not only this, but after we finished, she rounded up all the women who sell clothing in the neighboring shops and taught them everything I had shared with her. Now all of them want to study with us.

Please pray for our little group. I want to see us learning, encouraging one another, and sharing everything we study. It is amazing sometimes how God just leads you to the right person, a conversation starts…and then something like this happens.

    Good move, Elizabeth. Don’t dwell too much on the past and “what-ifs”. I am just glad you are there to spread the word and win folks over to Christ. Keep a positive view and I will pray for you and your work.

    Hi Elizabeth, I haven’t really commented much but just wanted to tell you how much I love your blog and look forward to reading about what your up to. Your doing a fantastic job and it’s so refreshing to see that you love what you do. Alot of folks just like to bitch and moan about this and that but not you. Your a true inspiration. I said a little prayer for you and your group today. All the best, Dave

    Elizabeth, I just ran into your website and I am so inspired by you and the work you are doing for God’s glory. I am a new nurse with a heart for Jesus. I am praying that I can go to Guatemala and use my nursing for God like you. I will be praying for you and all that you are doing. God bless you.

      Daisy, I am so happy to hear that God is at work in your life. I have no answer for why I am here or how on earth I found myself doing what I am doing now, other than Christ. I found myself working at an NGO, like every other person that “goes,” doing good, but not sharing my faith or leading people to Christ. I went through a lot of rough stuff, but God finally lead me to a place where I am proclaiming the Good News. I couldn’t express the love of God I have seen at work in these people.
