Thank you for your prayers not only for our team but for the people of Mathare Valley. It's been an incredible week filled with countless "God bumps" moments.
On Sunday we spent our last full day in Nairobi. In the morning we finished up the four day revival at the church in Bondeni. God is doing big things with His church in Bondeni through Pastor Stephen. We heard testimonies, witnessed as people accepted Christ, joined in on some pretty amazing worship, and got to hear our own, Derek Lynas, share God's word on evangelism.
We were excited to see several of the children and teachers from the Area 2 school and even more thrilled when they shared a couple of the things they'd learned over the past week......Matthew 5:14 and Super Big Love!
After church, we said our goodbyes to the Pastors, teachers, and students, taking lots of pictures. It's hard to put into words the feelings that you have when one of the students approaches you and calls you by name and says "Thank you, we will miss you!"
Sunday afternoon was a fun experience of shopping at a Maasai Market located next to the guest house we were staying in. It's quite an experience as you get to do some bargaining with the merchants for souvenirs.
Our evening was spent at the home of Mary and Wallace Kamau, where they treated us to a wonderfully prepared dinner of Mexican food:-) After dinner, we spent some quality time together sharing stories of the work God did through WRCC over the week. As we talked about the hard work that had been done, Pastor Martin, a good friend of the Kamau's, reminded us:
So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Galatians 6:9.
God is awesome because when we got back to the guest house and sat down for our team meeting, guess was the verse was in our devtion??? Galatians 6:9
