We're Back!
May 29th four of us left for a wonderful journey into the country of Kenya! This was my fourth trip, my wife's first, our pastor's wife's second and our video director's second. What an awesome time we enjoyed, stopped in London on Tuesday, rode the Tube into town, took a three hour bus tour and back to the airport via the Tube. Wednesday we arrived in Nairobi and were off to our home in Nakuru. On Thursday we drove north to Eldoret where we began a revival that evening at Praise Celebration Deliverance Church. It was a powerful meeting, each night services were good and lives were touch, Sunday morning the building was packed and the people in expectancy responded to the message and the ministry of the Holy Spirit...God is good! Sunday afternoon we returned to Nakuru, one of our team was sick, a doctor was called and Bethany treated for a stomach virus...she still came to church and allowed the Lord to touch her! Monday and Tuesday we spent some time in Nakuru, shopped in the street markets, bargined and shopped until we dropped. On Tuesday we went to a game preserve, saw flamingo's, water buffalo, giraffe, rhino's, impala's, antelope, and many other wild life animals, zebra and baboon's...it was wonderful. Tuesday afternoon we went to Nairobi and stayed there until we left on Thursday, drove into the bush area of Kengami on Wednesday and saw the ministry of Pastor Titus, his church, school and tailoring school...what a powerful work of God takes place there! Monday I was going across the street, looked to my right when I should have looked to my left...I ran into a taxi...a bicycle...scraped my leg...now I am able to relate to the Apostle Paul who spoke of bearing the marks in his body of his ministry for Christ. Kenya seeps deep into my spirit and I look forward to my next visit! It's great to be home!

Clay,

We went to the game preserve in Nakuru and shopped downtown at the street market...that's about it. We actually have a home there, as you go out of town there is a place called the Nakuru Blanket Factory, there is a village of homes in that area and we rent one year round. You really should go with us sometime! Tell the family hello!
