The whole team has arrived and we've enjoyed our first day together. I delivered the message at two services this morning and some of our team helped lead the teen Sunday School time. We visited the orphans and they sang for us. After lunch we visited the Nairobi National Museum then came back for dinner, team meeting and medicine sorting.

Made final preparations today at Jehovah Jireh Orphanage, meeting with the manager, Florence, and surveying the project site. Tomorrow it's church followed by a visit to the orphanage, a city tour and an evening of sorting medications and planning for Monday's first day of work. Praying for all of you as Irene strafes the East Coast. In the attached pictures you'll see Debbie Bornholdt, my co-leader, reading to orphans at Jehovah Jireh and Daniel and me with Florence outside her office. Please keep us in your prayers.

Spent the day in Kitui where I visited with Reverend J.V. Mule the Bishop of Kitui, assisted with the repair of a vehicle for the diocese, surveyed the project site and purchased some initial materials. We then drove the three hours back in time to greet early arrivals. Four team members came in tonight. We all got to the guest house by about 10:45 p.m. It's almost 11:30 now and I'm just getting back to my room. Tomorrow it's a visit to the orphanage and time to work on my message for Sunday. I'm speaking at St. Catherine's Church at both the English and Swahili services.
I'm praying for all of you and the people of North Carolina as Irene bears down on them. May God protect everyone as the storm passes.

Met with a newly formed committee that is charged with taking care of Jehovah Jireh orphanage. Then met the new principal of Carlile College who knows Harry Wendt. Carlile uses Crossways materials in their training curriculum. Then met with the General Secretary of Church Army Africa and talked about the work they've done to plant 120 new churches as 'healing ministries' all around Africa. Great stuff. Had dinner with some of our partners here before my driver brought me back to my room. Tomorrow it's off to Kitui to review the project and get some final supplies before coming back to Nairobi to meet early arriving team members.Click here to view photos from this trip
