At night, the last thing we do is tuck the mosquito net around the bed. Just as we’re dropping off to sleep – bzzzzzzzz – . We have closed ourselves in with one, blood thirsty, dive bombing mosquito. Annoyances can completely distract, even derail us from what is at hand; be it a good night’s sleep, getting tasks accomplished or following the direction to reach specific goals. It’s like the mosquito buzzing close to the ear and you end up spending then next hour trying to find and eradicate the nuisance.
East Africa has been our home for 4 months now. We have so much enjoyed the varied opportunities of sharing in a array of settings; church services both rural and urban, lunchtime fellowship, early morning office devotions, schools. We have travelled in Cars, Buses, Matatus (van) & Boda-Boda’s (motorcycles). Whatever will get us from here to there. Travelling on some of the roads could have been that distraction, like a buzzing mosquito, but we see it as part of the whole adventure. Apparently the mosquitos are too!
Our time here is coming to a close – for this trip. We fly back to Canada in just a coupleof days. This week, we’ve been teaching at Church of the Living God in Nairobi. Saturday was a “tech” day; training technicians about the set up and running of a sound system. Everything from speaker placement to wrapping cables; patching the sound board to holding microphones. Sunday, we spoke in the morning service and afternoon was a Worship Experience – joining with their worship team to praise and worship the Lover of our souls! So very Blessed!!!
