Sunday was a day of worship and preparation for the week ahead.
After our early morning arrival, we had a few hours to unpack and rest before heading out to Crossroads Fellowship for Sunday morning worship.
Pastor Robert led the worship team in several songs of praise, after which Pastor Jim Horne, delivered a message of a spiritual inventory for the new year and the importance of being the church in community. Jim is one of our missionary partners in Kenya. If you attend Fox River, you may remember that he visited us last November.
After church, we returned to the hotel to finalize details for this week, particularly our time spent with the recent graduates of our schools in Bomani and Vipingo.
Later in the afternoon, we loaded up the bus and traveled to the local shopping center, mainly to stop at Nakumatt. Like a Kenyan version of Walmart, the teams usually stop at Nakumatt for any essentials that we need for the trip, snacks, and additional supplies for the schools.
After Nakumatt, we prepared the supplies we need for tomorrow's day at our schools in Vipingo and Bomani and had some free time for as long as we could stay awake. Some are lasting than others.
Tomorrow will be out first day at the schools with the kids. Please pray that our time in the schools gets off to a good start! Stay tuned for more updates!
