On Sunday, February 10, 11 people will be commissioned to Kenya for a multi-week mission trip. Check back here often for updates about their work in Kenya as we receive pictures, video, and stories!
Today was a recovery day- busy, but no work. We went to the Elephant Orphanage and the Giraffe Center, both of which rescue or breed endangered animals and prepare them to return to the wild. We also visited the Kazuri Bead Factory, a mission to give single moms employment making hand crafted beads, jewelry, and pottery.
The team’s devotion today dealt with priorities from John 12:8 “You will always have the poor among you, but you will not always have me.” Let us make it a priority to keep the team in our prayers during this trip: for safety, health, and open eyes for how God desires to use them as a blessing to the Kenyans. May they be equally blessed by seeing God’s glory all throughout this trip!
We spent today painting two prime coats on the church sanctuary and vestry with church members. Lots of conversations, laughter, and chai!
1 Peter 4:10 “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”
The mission team wants to say hi! All is going well so far. Today they were able to finish painting the church. What amazing things they’re doing! Please continue to keep them in your prayers!
Acts 20:35 It is more blessed to give than to receive.
