Waypoint 1: Michigan

Josiah Other Youth at InterCity
Since our return to the United States about five weeks ago, we have been serving in several areas:
First, we have continued to serve at our home church in Nairobi. Through online calls, Jenny and I have continued to meet with two couples for their pre-marital counseling. I have also been able to sit in on an elders’ meeting to discuss and strategize about church-planting opportunities in Nairobi.
Second, we have been meeting informally with Detroit area pastors to reconnect and to update one another in our respective ministries and to think about possible ways that we can continue to seek partnerships for the sake of the progress of the gospel in Kenya.
Third, we have had several formal meetings with churches to report what the Lord has been doing in Kenya. We've visited our three supporting churches in the area: First Baptist Church, Lake Orion; Community Bible Church, Trenton; and InterCity Baptist Church, Allen Park. I'm thankful for opportunities to preach and teach adults during the Sunday school hour in addition to sharing a summary of our missionary work in Kenya from the last several years.
We will be travelling to Virginia this weekend for a quick trip to a supporting church in the Richmond area. Please pray for safe travel and fruitful meetings, both with the church and with individual members who have invited us to more personal meetings.
Our Ride at First Baptist Church, Sterling Heights
After a final week here in Michigan on a family retreat with InterCity, we’ll be moving to the Syracuse area where we’ll stay to report to our church partner there.
Pray for us as being away from our home in Kenya, our normal routine, and our beloved church family has stretched us physically and spiritually. Pray that the Lord would help us make the most of this opportunity as we seek to serve him in any way he chooses.
Thank you again for your faithful prayers for us!
