Learning there was an immediate need for a fence around the new property, our men started digging holes and placing fence posts while a group of local boys began clearing the land.
We had several opportunities to visit the villages throughout Mtpeni while blessing many kids with shoes. We prayed with dozens who received Christ and had many conversations with devout Muslims, planting the seed for future harvest.
It was very sobering to see the conditions under which the villagers lived…no electricity, no running water, just dirt floors, poor sanitation and disease. But their sweet, welcoming spirit and unique hospitality was such a blessing to experience.
On Sunday, Paul preached his first sermon. At the conclusion, 9 people prayed to receive Christ! As in years past, the rain was pelting down, but we still baptized 16 people who had accepted Christ as their Savior.
Our team was so blessed for the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of many in and around MBEWAU. We left Kenya honored to have served God and our hearts are forever changed in ways we had not anticipated. Praise God for all He has done and will continue to do!
