Today I Type with Raw Knuckles

So we are back in Nairobi today after a very long journey yesterday from Kisumu. A drive that would normally only take 5 or 6 hours took us....ah, I don't know...too many, as one of the trucks broke down several times....several times on the way. But we arrived in the night and are now relaxing today at a favorite coffee shop here in Nairobi. I spent a couple of hours this morning doing laundry for my family, as it is all done by hand here. So I am trying to stay on top of it, rather than the once a week laundry day that I would do at home. So one bucket full of dirty clothes took two hours to wash by hand and ended with bloody knuckles.

In the last several weeks, we have been in several different communities, visited with many, many families, shaken countless hands, greeted many people, and have seen the hand of God moving among the African people. In the next several days, I will try to break this down into separate stories. For now, please pray for the Church in Kenya. Please pray for your brothers and sisters who are struggling so much here in Kenya. We have met with sisters who are alone in their faith, who are struggling to hold on to what they know of Jesus because no one else around them professes Him name. Please pray for these sisters. When we met with them, you can not imagine who encouraged they were to simply know that they are not alone, that there are brothers and sisters on the other side of the world who are holding them up before the Throne of Grace. You cannot imagine how their spirits were lifted to simply know that were standing with the whole bride of Christ. Please remember them in your prayers.
