I'm so excited about this day...can't even adequately describe it!

Live update from Kenya:

Today we will start our day by going to the East Africa School of Theology where we will be for the next four days ministering.

Before all of the ladies arrive for the national conference, their executive and national leadership women come together for meetings. I will be speaking to them this morning, teaching and sharing on leadership.

I absolutely fell in love with these ladies last year. Seriously, I'm going to scream with excitement when I see some of them that are especially dear to my heart. Couldn't wait to get back to them. Among them are national executives, district superintendent's wives, pastor's wives and women's leaders. Today, I'm going to bare my soul to them in my open, honest and candid way...and I know God is going to move! Before I do all that we're going to give each of them some beautiful gifts from the people of Northside Assembly of God! Yippee! They are going to be so excited. We also have some awesome gifts to give to each of the missionary women here. I am just beside myself with joy. We are giving away 778 hundreds of pieces of beautiful jewelry, scarves, books, my "Breathing Room" CD's (to those who speak English), cool sunglasses, make up, lip balms, clothes, and the list goes on. I have been so excited at times I couldn't sleep just thinking about it.

Although I could not go to the Mathare church as I was in Buru Buru on Sunday, arrangements have been made to go to Mathare Valley slums tomorrow afternoon when I'm done speaking at the leadership meeting. We're going to tour the slums, minister to people, give candy galore to the kids, and reach out to them with all the love we've got in our hearts. Sue and I can't wait! We'll have photos for sure...can't wait to share the amazing day with you. Gotta go sleep...it's scarce lately. :-) But it's all good. I'm savoring every moment of tihs beloved place and these people I love so dear.
