KENYAN MOUNTAIN CLIMBING!!

Posted by on Jul 20, 2013 |

Yes…I said MOUNTAIN CLIMBING!! Today we had an incredible day with the Masii Christian Chapel Youth Group. We took the opportunity to encourage and edify the students (and adults) that are part of the Youth Group. It was a great day!! They said they wanted to take us on a “hike”…not a hard hike but a challenging hike. Well that is exactly what it was…CHALLENGING!! But all in all it was great (although there were times we were all wondering if we were even on a path). Please pray for the Youth Ministry here in Masii. They have the same challenges we have in the U.S. but, some are extreme.

Yes! This is the mountain we climbed.

After hiking the “TALLEST MOUNTAIN IN THE AREA” we were treated to “githeri”…a traditional dish of peas and corn…SOOO GOOD…we all gathered at Cornelius’ home. His mother, father, and neighbor hosted us and made us feel like family. Cornelius’ father made this statement, “I see different churches together, honoring us by coming to our house and eating our food, and being with people you don’t even know…I want to go to your church because it is a good church.” This is the “church” that God expects us to be…KNOWING JESUS AND MAKING HIM KNOWN! Amen!!

Pray for us as we continue to walk where Jesus calls us to walk.
