Serving in Kenya with PACE Ministries
Everything is going well with me here. Moved into the apartment earlier this week after a most enjoyable three weeks at Dorris’. Have my own internet line which is very convenient. Everyone here has been most helpful which has made it easy for me to acclimatise..I very much feel at home.
There’s always a lot happening at PACE. Last night the 65 PACE boarders met with other area youth at Wachira’s church for a praise and worship time which started at 7 pm Kenyan time and ended after 12:30 am. A great evening not only for the young ones but also for the not so young. Today the boarders still had the energy to serve by pitching in to finish hoeing and otherwise preparing a somewhat disabled widow’s garden in time for planting before the rains come. Got a few sprinkles this afternoon.
The students at PACE recently started their own Sunday morning service in the cafeteria. With the assitance of Dorris they pretty much organize the event. I attended last Sunday and truly felt like I was in the Lord’s house. It starts at 9 am so I will be able to attend regularly and still be able to get attend other local services.
I am enjoying the teaching particularly as it gives me the opportunity to fellowship with students in grades 6,7 and 8 in the Academy and form 1 High School and the other teachers..
I am truly blessed to have this opportunity to serve in whatever way I can with the support of the Harbour community and the church leadership.
Thanks again and I will certainly pass along greetings to all our mutual friends here.
