Global Impact – Pray our Kenya Team home!

To all of you who have been praying for the Kenya Team these last two weeks:

They are on their way home and this last stretch is always the hardest. They are tired of planes, buses, cars and are thinking of sleeping in their own warm beds tonight. Let’s make sure we are right there walking with them these last few steps of the way. Pray the pilots understand the precious souls they have been charged to transport home. Please pray they get some rest on the long flights home. Pray their family is at the airport waiting for them as they make their way through customs. Pray they have heard God say “well done” in serving our Kenyan family.

Paulette’s flight is scheduled to land this Afternoon at 4:10pm and Iris is scheduled to land tonight at 11:47pm.

Global Impact Kenya Team update – Seniors again… The enormous vision of Kenya

We visited the AIC Salient church where Wachira Ngamua is Pastor. We were told to expect 60 Seniors, where we would take weight, Nurse Renee and Dr. Kenya would do blood pressures and address health concerns. Well, of course word went forth, and by the end of the day we serviced over 65 women and over 20 men! It was such a blessing to be blessed. The people, even with the language barrier were so warm and inviting. Personally I felt at home. There are times when God reveals the truth of understanding in quite unique ways. We were suppose to have our journey with the Seniors for two hours. Four hours later we were saying goodbye.

I cry when we leave the elderly, mainly because I know they walk far to visit with the team… They need medication, attention, and love. Many live alone, and this opportunity means the world to them.

Global Impact Kenya Team update – Children and Seniors…All in one day!

So… What have you done lately?😉 Well, one day I took a early morning ride, down a highway. The driver turned down a dirt road where chickens and goats we’re roaming. Stopping the vehicle in front of a beautiful school… I climbed out, along with a great group of people who all smiled when we stepped out of the Van. The beautiful landscape, brought back memories…

Noticing a group of children quietly sitting on the grass we smiled, waved hello and immediately was met by teacher Mr. Moses. After introductions were spoken, we toured these groomed grounds and buildings, all the while the children say still on the grounds.

This is the center (school) for the cognitively impaired students. I have never experienced a group of children so we’ll behaved, cheerful and well mannered.

We served them bread and juice. But before the serving they sang for us (prayerfully the video will come through)
We thought this was our blessing for the day… Stay tuned💓💓

Global Impact Kenya Team update – Continuation… The Seniors

After a wonderful visit with the children’s school, and by the way I forgot to tell you… Seeing the roof that Pastor Greg (as he is so fondly called) and his dad helped to put on one of the school buildings and the water tower brought back memories… (See photo)

Now, as we drove away from the children we are turning yet again onto dirt rickety roads…

Now, we are driven onto a small grassy road. We stop, descend the Matatu… I smile. This is my place. I find my refuge here. We are at the Senior Citizen Community building. I am in love. The affair had been many years. These are my people.

We come in, to clapping, and then singing with beautiful drumming. Mostly women this trip… They were wonderful. The Pastor spoke words on never giving up, how these are women of prayer. How God has returned some of the children back to their parents after 15 years. These women are women of prayer.

Later our Sister Marva spoke and blessed the hearts of the women.

After service Nurse Renee took blood pressures, weight and gave advice on helping them to maintain their health.

We served loaves of bread (for take home) and sodas. Later they were served Ugi (a high protein drink).

We were so completely blessed!!❤️❤️❤️❤️

Global Impact update :Sunday…

After a wonderful breakfast we gathered at PACE for church. At 8:30 the children lead their own private Praise and Worship. It was wonderful watching them sing and pray. After about an hour, we broke for Tea and mandaze. At this time I went and found my 2nd daughter Sharon. We are almost the same height! She serves in the capacity of Usher at church. She is such a beautiful growing child!

After Tea time, there was Sunday School. All team members were given a class and our job was to affirm the teachers. The high school teens teach the younger children. Iris and I were together. The young lady taught well, I closed the session by giving the invitation for Christ. Then we gathered once again for “presentations”. This is when all classes present either a song or scripture. We were also blessed by a couple of guys giving a great praise dance! The most blessing was our Iris – she gave the Bible story of the birth of Christ using the wonderful flannelgraph.

As a result of her telling the story of Jesus, 10 children have professed belief in Christ. Now for discipleship!❣️❣️❣️💕💕💕

We are now enjoying dinner. We pray that God was pleased with our offering.

Global Impact: Kenya Team praise day 1 1/2

The drive from Nairobi was very pleasant… Memories flood back, the brownness of the earth, sheep and goats mingled with children… Some in uniform coming from Saturday school. Curious faces looking into the Matatu… who are those people? Open food markets, clothing hung out for sale, motorcycles whizzing by… home… Kenya.

As we drive down the road headed into the home, we are met with the bluest blue. The time wall at the school is painted! It is beautiful, and it gave me a sense of security for the children.

We are now settled into PACE. The ministry house still going through renovation. It looks wonderful. We have eaten, sorted suitcases, laughed, talked and now preparing for orientation and job assignments for Sunday School.

See ‘ya.
