Hello from Kenya! We have had a great day with the people, in the village of Bomani. We are so blessed to be able to be a part of reaching their community, in the name of Jesus.
Jambo! We started off the day at Crossroads Fellowship Church. It was such a great experience to be worshiping with fellow Christians here in Kenya. Pastor Guy gave a great message from the series "Lies We Believe" (it was even better the second time!). The worship in Kenya was amazing! The second service we got to go to youth group with Kenyan youth. It was great to meet youths my age and hear about their lives. Pastor Bill had a great message and we learned some things about him that none of us at Fox River knew before! After church we headed back to the hotel and ate a quick lunch and some of us jumped in the pool! To close the day we headed to Bomani. The kids in Bomani are very different from the children in Vipingo. It took a little while to make some friends. But with time we made some great relationships. I love all the children in Bomani.

Today we went Crossroads Fellowship Church in the morning! We drove in seeing a small shack thinking that was the church (still with smiles though) but we continued driving and saw this gorgeous building. I was blown away by how big and beautiful the church was. Running in with excitement, we heard the sound of many voices rehearsing for worship for the service. The auditorium was big and beautiful just like Fox River and it was fun because it reminded us all of home. We met a lot of new friends before and after the service and during the youth group time. I also met some friendly faces from the U.S.. Both the service and youth group time were such an incredible experience and we all loved it! After the service we went back to Neptune and ate our lunch but shortly after went to Bomani. While at Bomani we had the opportunity to play volleyball and hang out with the kids for a while! We saw faces we had seen from church so it was a lot of fun. Over all today was an awesome day and everyday I become more and more grateful for everything thing that I am blessed with. And my heart is more and more humbled as I encounter the kids. All they need is the love of God to put a smile on their face!
Tomorrow we have a fun day together as a team, and then we are going to both schools to prepare for our VBS days. Thank you for praying with, and for us.
