Buru Buru

I prescheduled this to post before I left:

This morning I am preaching at Buru Buru Kenya Assembly of God led by co-pastors Pius & Jane Tembu. They are not only very well known pastors here, but also serve in local and national leadership for the AG there. Pastor Pius is the Secretary General of the Kenya Assemblies of God and the Nairobi District Superintendent. Pastor Jane is a powerful preacher in her own right and on the executive leadership of the women's ministries also on the national level. They invited me to preach at their church this morning and I'm so excited. From what I hear they have a 4,000 seat sanctuary and 3 levels (tiers as one article I read called it) and multiple morning services.

I'm preaching on Pentecostal Power! (Did I mention I can't wait?)

After ministering at the church this morning, and having lunch this afternoon we are traveling to Limuru to dedicate a children's orphanage. I can't wait!!! Sue has bought these kids a zillion pieces of candy. Think about how your kids here in the USA get bags full of candy for every holiday and think it's nothing...and then imagine how these African children are going to go bonkers over it. Seriously, it's going to be amazing to see their faces light up.

By the time you read this it will all be over as we're eight hours ahead of you, so it's too late for you to pray that we have a great service or orphanage dedication, but pray for us as we're traveling back to the missionary compound in Nairobi. As soon as I'm able to I'll give an update and some photos I will. It may be possible to get on the internet tonight if we can get a connection at the compound. Sue is video taping a lot too, by the way!
