Thanks from Kenya


Cruising through the bush on a fresh set of wheels

I got this email today from Michael, our contact in Kenya. They have been so blessed with the new transportation that many of you from The God Journey helped to provide for them through your contributions. Thank you so much for blessing a brother who is involved in the front lines of both caring for widows and orphans, and in spreading the kingdom throughout the more remote places of Central Africa.

Much appreciations from IGEM members all over for standing with us in this dependable vehicle. We can now move all over even in a rainy season like this. I have tried to reach may parts of Kenya where I have never reached before because of the transportation means. As you may see in the pictures, we went to some areas where there are no roads but people have been using only walking path ways and people live in the bushes but we managed to reach even to the tops of the valleys.

This area called Samia interior places and also the same neighboring called Marachi. we are having the souls over there and we are having interior pastors who have never heard the message of being loved and loving others. It is only tradition, religion there. we had a wonderful time with the native people. We shared the love of Christ of this journey of Transition. My Brother Wayne and Kent, you have left here the legacy of love which is now taking the root. we have more invitations to reach and continue praying for us that this gospel may expand from all over Kenya and in Africa. We have appreciated very much for the kind of love which we have never seen.


Learning to live loved, and to love others

The need here, especially among the widows and orphans is ongoing.

    I love what Michael writes about you and Kent leaving a “legacy of love”…I love that it isn’t about the two of you, but about Father’s love. I don’t know of a better way to describe what you and Kent did by going there and loving them “with a kind of love they’ve never seen”. It wasn’t about you guys at all but about what the father wanted those people to hear and see about him…and how awesome it is that they received it that way.

    And I love the picture of the new car 4 wheeling it through the dirt paths, that is a far cry from the little red car the two of you rode around in. 🙂

    Julie, I agree completely.

    There actually was a little bit of me that was feeling silly going into the midst of a people that are dealing with hardships we here in the west can’t really even imagine. Thinking I/we had something to offer them that might help them was just sounding a bit absurd to me. A further humbling took place while there and today it continues, as I hear of how the story of their lives continue to move on. You just never know how the life of the One that leaves in us all is going to touch others. I’m learning to live more at peace with that mystery.

    And it is awesome hearing about the opportunities the new vehicle is making possible for them.
