Hello again from Kenya. Today our team transitioned from working at Il Tum Tum and did an all day training for pastors, Church leader, Sunday school teachers, and those working with youth. We hosted the training at Community Christian Church (CCC) at Ole-tukat. This church was started in the early 1980s by the father of Bishop James Sinkua. He was one of the first converts to Christianity among the Massai.
We encouraged these church leaders with the Biblical account of David killing Goliath. Kasey shared how to find the main idea of a passage, Nicole shared how to ask and welcome questions, and Renee shared how to involve students into the learning process through hands on activities. We ate lunch, took tea, and enjoyed the fellowship with our brothers and sisters in Christ.
After saying goodbye, we travelled to Narok for dinner and shopping at a supermarket, then arrived to Ewaso N-giro to the CCC training center which will be our home until Tuesday.
It has been so encouraging to see each person on the team engage and invest their heart into each ministry opportunity. They have each been humble, flexible, and servant-hearted, a true expression of Jesus in all situations.
Continue to pray for our team as we travel to several churches to preach and worship tomorrow (and throw a crazy wild Kenya style party for our team leader Renee's birthday).
It's an honor to make deeper friendships with each person on this team and serve alongside them.
(Massai name Lemaiyan "blessed one")
