Experience Kenya!

Experience Kenya!

Boy did I sleep good! There was one mosquito that came in my room. I quickly got up and Travis R. came to make sure I was ready. Joey double-checked each room. We all went down for breakfast and afterwords went to get ready for church. Travis and a few guys hung out in my room for awhile and then we all walked out to the balcony. There was a greyhound on the left side of the road, and all of the sudden we see goats being pulled out from under the greyhound. Only one was thrown to the side of the road because it was dead. Then another was pulled and thrown. In no time, both were gone. The driver of our bus showed up and the guys went down to meet him. We were there by ourselves for awhile until Suzanne came. The bus could only fit 11 of us, so it took us two trips to get there. I was in the second round. We to to Antioch and we just went in and sat down as a guy was preaching. He preached for quite awhile. Soon he was done as the bell rand and women and children flooded in [Sunday school was over]. I went and sat with 3-4 boys and as we sang songs and prayed, two came and I let one of them sit on my lap. The kids were great. One of the pastors called Suzanne up and she introduced all of us. After a few more songs, two pastors came up. One spoke in English while the other translated in Kikuyu. That lasted FOREVER (an hour at least). Finally, possibly after three hours there [no lie.], it was time to go to lunch with “Mama” and “Papa” two missionaries who have lived here for 52 years. They are both 89, I believe. So they and many other leaders joined us. (more…)
