I spent some time this Sunday with a couple of my Kenyan friends and attended their church. I must say it was one of the most encouraging days I have had since I have been back in Kenya. This is the first time I have ever attended a Kenyan church (besides Mattaw’s) that taught a gospel untainted by the prosperity doctrine that has ravished Kenya. Not only this, but the pastor and his wife spent the whole afternoon praying with me and encouraging me in my work. They spent four years in the States, so we had a good long chat about ministry in America as well.

Other than this, they have recently planted a church in Rwanda. The youth group here is estatic and three are determined to go to Rwanda and spend as many months as necessary to teach the people more about the Bible. This is the first time I have ever met a group of Kenyan college and highschool students who aspired to go live in a country other than America. And out of all places, Rwanda! I am told that it is hard finding land there. All the fields have been used as grave yards.

Pictured below is the preacher, his brother, and two of the three kids they will be taking to Rwanda. When they get there, they will be leaving them behind. Please keep all of them in your prayers.

    Wow, what a privilege, to sit in a church with these people. And I just can’t imagine a country where the fields have all been turned to graveyards. It’s beyond my comprehension. May the Lord bless this little church and protect all sent out to minister to others.

      They will appreciate your prayers. People always talk about the faith it takes to move here from the US, but now I just laugh! They’ve got the real thing!
