A Sunday to Remember

This morning we worshipped with the Kakamega Town Church.  Their worship is something to remember.  The entire team danced in the conga line that moved through the chairs during worship.  We simply had a great time.  The people of this church are truly wonderful; full of love and passion for the Lord.

This afternoon we had our orientation meeting with the doctors, nurses and volunteers in preparation for tomorrow’s camp.  What a great group of people!   Just as we finished the meeting we were greeting by a torrential rain that beat against the building with a fury.  Maybe I weird but I really love those storms.  Just as the storm was raging the ultrasound machine arrived at the church for unloading.  We were horrified to see that it was very wet when it arrived.  So now we have to go through a careful process of drying it before we can turn it on.  Man this machine has really been through it getting here.  Please pray that when we turn it on it will still work.  It is such a vital tool and so needed here in this city.

Tonight we had a big dinner for 30 people.  The leaders of WorldCOMP and the leaders of the church gathered together to share WorldCOMP stories.  It was very touching for me as person after person shared how their experience with WorldCOMP’s medical camps have changed their lives.  Several of the nurses came all the way from Nairobi to Kakamega to be with us, because they said that the work we are doing represents something they have wanted to do all their lives.  We are so blessed to have such people on our team.  God has been good to us.

It’s late, so I will say goodnight.  We begin tomorrow with another medical camp.  Pray for our strength and for wisdom as we serve these precious people.
