February

Josiah Celebrating His Eighth Birthday
The month of February has flown by, and now it's time to update you on our situation again. I'm happy about the way my routine is settling down, and we are steadily accomplishing the little agenda items still needed for making Nairobi our home. The end of this month marks six months in Kenya!

One highlight of the month has been the time I've spent with our Kenyan Bible college students inside and outside of the classroom. It's always exciting to talk through a passage of Scripture or theological idea with someone who has studied diligently but approaches the Scriptures from a very different cultural context. Our conversations have been full of surprising insights and refreshing resolutions for steps of obedience.

Praise the Lord for granting—

  • Recovery from a perplexing fever our family was circulating for about 10 days this month.
  • Safety on the roads (and no more 3.5-hour drives to work:-).
  • Exhilarating ministry with our new Kenyan friends.
Gabbing with Prospective Students
  • Please pray with me and my Acts class that the Lord would continue to help us to understand his Word and become doers of it.
  • Pray that Christ would be honored by our verbal and living testimony in our community.
  • Pray that God would grant Jenny and me humility and perseverance as we continue to study language and culture.

Thank you for keeping us in your prayers!
