Goodbye to Kenya

Last night, I was in the Nairobi airport lounge, talking to my friends and giving advice and counsel up until the time I departed. In the two weeks I was there, the following is a summary of what I did:

  1. I trained more than 600 leaders in four days of training from 9 to 4.
  2. Visited with all my ministry partners (6) to encourage them.
  3. Preached two services at Harvest Fellowship in Kangemi area of Nairobi.
  4. Consulted for a group of lawyers representing those who are marginalized in Kenyan society.
  5. Brought over books and supplies for those who requested them.
  6. Met many new friends, trying to lay the groundwork for my next visit - hopefully in December.
  7. Helped raise more than $8,000, which I distributed to our partners here - every penny that was donated was given without any personal expenses being deducted, for which I am trusting the Lord.

As I sit in the lounge in Paris awaiting my flight to Pittsburgh, I think of the words of Nehemiah, "Remember me for this, my God, and do not blot out what I have so faithfully done for the house of my God and its services" (13:14), and "Remember me with favor, my God" (13:31b). As I return, there is still a matter of my own travel expenses from the trip, which I gladly de-emphasized to raise the money our partners needed. If you feel inclined to help me with those expenses, you can give online or by sending a check to PurposeQuest, PO Box 8882, Pittsburgh, PA 15221-0882. Thank you and I am ready to go home!
