SMT Kenya – Updates #2 & 3
These past two weeks the Kenya team has ventured out of Nairobi to explore the mountainous Mwala and Machakos Divisions! We could not choose what we loved more, the heart warming “Karibu!” (“Welcome!”), or the breathtaking views.
There are only photos of the visit to the Mwala Division, because during week three we chose to do our photo fast! It was humbling to focus intently on God’s vast creation. We’ve fallen in love with every child we’ve met, and have experienced their joy through dance, and praise and worship. We’ve been encouraged by the God-driven community of the schools and corps. From public open airs/crusades and marching through the streets while chanting praise songs in Swahili, to being greeted by friendly smiles on a daily basis. We’ve been able to minister to the children of the corps and schools through songs, dance, Bible stories, sports, and games. On Sunday, Matt and Geron preached on the importance of prayer and the armor of God at the Machakos corps. They did an awesome job of bringing God’s Word to life even with a language barrier.
This week we’re going to be traveling to a new division and our team will be split into two groups while evangelizing with the community. We’re all excited to see what God has in store for the second half of our summer!
Please keep us in your prayers,
Peace and Love,
