It's Friday morning in Nairobi and I'm putting on all the warm clothes I have. Coming from 90+ degree temperatures in Lodwar, it feels like winter here. The past week in Lodwar I spent delivering food and audio bibles to several villages. Thanks to the generosity of many, we were able to deliver around 5 tons of food to this drought-stricken place. From Monday to Wednesday, we reached nine villages with these desperately needed supplies of food.
I don't know why, but these massive termite mounds are a continuing source of fascination to me. They literally dot the landscape in Turkana.
Before I left on Thursday, we took another run out to Nareng'lup to view the progress on the church building.
Note the OSHA approved ladder.
We were a bit disappointed that the work was not yet completed but perhaps it was due to the fact that the workers had less than desirable living conditions. Below is a picture of their campsite. A scrawny thorn tree and makeshift windbreak provide what can only be described as bleak comfort. They are actually sleeping on the doors they brought for the church.
Frank and I are traveling to Narok today to meet with Maasai pastor, Stephen Muntet, to plan our spring conference in Olulaimutia and discuss the progress of those students from the village. We travel on Saturday to meet with pastors in Kilgoris. Thank you all for your support and prayers.
