Those at Rehoboth Church were very excited to have me join them on Sunday for worship. The church is doing very well. They have purchased land in order to move from their current location to their own situation. Pastor Peter showed me the land and it looks big and wonderful. A fence and a gate have been put up already and plans/actions to put in a toilet are the next step. After completing this, a tent can be put in place and the church can relocate during construction. Currently, they are renting office and sanctuary space, but it is thought that after January, services can start meeting at the new location. This is a very exciting time for everyone as much time, resources, and prayer have been invested and now God is going to move in a mighty way for them.
Pastor Peter Kangi: The Kangi family is doing so well! Their son, Kings, is now 3 and will 4 on August 7th. That’s right, we share the same birthday and are therefore Birthday Buddies! Their daughter, Grace, is in the 5th grade and is proving to be a good teacher. As she learns languages at school, she teaches Kings, so that when we are all playing together, I find myself not understanding Kings and the directions he is giving me in French! Roselyn and Peter are also doing well. While I am here, there are my guardian family and I am so grateful for their prayers and supports.
Joshua and Liz Ng’anga: I was able to spend time with Joshua and Liz. Wow! Has God blessed them or what?! I was so encouraged to finally meet Mishele, their 10 month old son, ride in their own personal vehicle, and sleep in their home that they built. In less than 2 years, God has added to their family, provided them with a vehicle and taken rent away by allowing them to build. As a family, they are doing well and are still a pleasure to be around.
I was able to greet other members of the church and passed along greetings and love from Harvest Fellowship Church back in PA. Apparently, I did talk WAY too fast for the church to actually get what I said, but hakuna matata… perhaps I will not have to address the congregation again!
