HUGE day filled with laughter, tears, joy and exhaustion.
Our team spent the first part of the morning talking about the cultural difference between the Kenyan and American way of living life, then reflected on Paul’s writings that tell us to win some (to Christ) we must become like them. If we are ever going to relate to the culture and people in Kenya, we must learn from them, be like them and relate to them, then God can open up opportunities for the Gospel. We practiced this all day long. Thank you Lord for your faithfulness to your people today.
Morning games, crafts and soccer with the little ones! 3 hours of it! We could not get enough of the laughter and smiles we got to experience during this time. Face painting was the big hit, along with duck, duck, goose! Loved the time of investing in their lives today.
Delicious lunch then we hiked 6 miles up 2000ft elevation to Kijabe – yes – it was a hike to remember! Not only was it a difficult stretch for the team, but the sights were amazing! We ended up at Mark and Liz Sisler home and they made us all kettle corn! So good, then Bob Mendonsa got a birthday wish my getting drenched by water for a Naoimi’s Village tradition then sung to by the kids. It was hilarious!
Bonfire was a fun dance party, filled with smores and worship, ending with the guys and girls dividing up for hang out time. It was a long and amazing day to be with these kids.
Worship in the morning then an afternoon of rest and preparing for the rest of the week. We miss you family and thanks for the prayers!
