Our week in Kenya is over. We’re sitting in the Schipol Airport in Amsterdam on our way back home to Oklahoma. Since I’m trying to stay awake to beat the jet lag when we get home (fat chance). I wanted to take a waking moment to thank everyone who supported this trip prayerfully and financially. God truly worked through you. Most of all I want to thank Ed and Kelli Compean for opening their home and their ministry to us, freely and graciously. It was a blessing getting to know them better.
We all learned much about Kenya – and ourselves. The girls were great travelers and they seemed completely unfazed, blending in as much as “m’zungu” can in Githurai (not at all). They learned a few new games I’m sure they’re ready to teach their friends. They helped to teach the story of Esther at a school and orphanage in Estliegh, a primarily Muslim neighborhood in Nairobi. Christy and I were blessed to meet and fellowship with the church in Githurai. We were there for the service where Murigi Kariuki officially became the pastor of Calvary Chapel Githurai, or as he said “foremost slave.” The church is training up leaders to raise up more leaders.
I know everyone is anxious to know if we are moving forward. I am too. Both Christy and I feel like it would be unwise to speak without much prayer and processing first. This is something she is much better at than I am. Please pray with us that as we digest this week, mentally and emotionally, that the Lord would continue to speak to our hearts that we may know His will for our steps.
