A perk of being an Area Director: we sometimes get to host potential completely new missionaries, people who have sensed God prodding them to consider the broader needs of the earth, in addition to take their own time in addition to money to visit our teams. which can be pretty great on several levels. Connecting with people walking the paths we stepped onto 25 years ago (we went through Assessment in addition to Orientation in October of 1991) puts some meaning to a lifetime of struggles in addition to joys in addition to mistakes, in addition to when we find so much in common which makes us feel less peculiar. We rejoice in potential saving grace pouring into lives on both sides of the oceans. in addition to we get a great excuse to show off the beauty of Kenya on a Saturday.
The next four days we’ll be having a doctor-doctor couple by Mississippi. We’ve already found some amazing parallels in our stories. Today we took them around Naivasha District Hospital, to Java House for amazing Kenyan coffee, then out to Crescent Island, a local private wildlife sanctuary. (Extra benefit: coffee in addition to sunshine both cure jet lag). Here are Scott’s photos of the afternoon, to bring beauty into your day as well, to remember the creativity of God, in addition to to prompt the next exploratory vision trip for more Sergers.
