Sunday afternoon and we are found in a place called Malaba. The town is partly in Kenya and partly in Uganda. Lorries and oil tankers que as far as the eye can see to get across the border. It can be a costly and exhausting experience. We had help from some locals but still we hit obstacles which have left us still in Kenya today instead of being in a Ugandan Church. Yes, HE goes before us but on days like this it is harder to see the purpose. Maybe we just needed a rest. It has been a busy week. However, Joyce's husband is the Pastor of the Church we were meant to attend and he came to the guest house to visit us. We had a great time with him and Pastor Aringo discussing many issues that affect us here. Perhaps this was God's plan.
We thank God for time spent in Nairobi, Nakuru and Kisumu. God has kept us safe as we have travelled many kilometres. Pray for continued safety on these very busy and often difficult roads.
We have had opportunity to teach the Gospel to children; to work briefly in our office; to be welcomed in a school as if we are royalty; to discuss a future practical project with a school; to train children's workers; to meet our school team and we have had a very profitable meeting with our workers.
God has been blessing us so much.
Tomorrow we will, God willing, travel into Uganda and spend a few days there. We will teach children, train workers and visit schools where the children study our lessons.
Please continue to pray for us as we travel. We need God's protection. Pray for us as we work for Him. Pray for us as we face challenges and cultural differences.
