We may have ingested some bugs among the swarms around our heads Saturday night at the outdoor meeting in the village of Ngelechom. Sunday morning the rains fell hard and steady, further washing out the roads through the jungle yet people continue to gather here in Apegei for worship and the Word. For them it is very cold but they come together to love their God and give Him praise for the blessing of rain and the life they have.
It has been an interesting week battling some sickness and Dave with malaria. Marg has been able to fulfill some of the ministry in the jungle villages which is a complete delight. Surrounded at one time by a group of 10 year old girls, Marg was peppered with questions, sung to in Swahili, more questions, fascinated by a map of the world and brief geography lesson. One girl shyly said “Can we feel your hair?” All hands in with oh’s & ah’s and giggles of delight.
Dave is still recovering but is back in action for our final 3 days in this district before we travel to Kisii area for a 3 day Leader’s conference.
Our friend sent this as she prayed for us this week and we say Amen!
