Habari and Happy Autumn!!
Yes, we’re still a bit in shock ourselves that this is all really happening! The Lord has quite rapidly opened the doors for us (C&P) to fly out to Nairobi, Kenya tomorrow, October 5th through the 15th on a Vision Trip!! We will be joining Colin and Fey as they host the CellKenya Network Consultation, October 9th-11th.
This consultation is a tremendous opportunity for the many churches who have been involved in cell ministry over the past 6 years to connect with each other and to begin envisioning what the future of the ministry will be. It is also where the CellKenya Network launch will take place, which Colin and Fey have envisioned and prayed over for a long time. We are thrilled that we will get to be a part of that and witness the future of the ministry as it begins to expand! We have this opportunity to not only experience Kenya for ourselves but to begin developing relationships with the pastors and leaders Colin and Fey have mentored and whom we will be in relationship with for years to come.
This trip will also give us the privilege and opportunity to fully witness the vision of Cell in Kenya and beyond in ways we have not yet been able to from the States. We are praying that when we return we will have a much keener sense of the needs of the Kenyan people. With that deepened sense we pray we can affectively translate what those needs are here and convey His vision for the country of Kenya!
PRAYERS: Please keep us in your prayers as we travel to Nairobi and build relationships. Also, for our girls who will be staying with family during this time.
PRAISES: We celebrated Ellyana’s 4th birthday, Saturday, Sept. 22nd! It was a wonderful party and Ellyana had an absolute blast! We began working with a coach from Kingdom Come Training recently and hope to streamline our goals through that relationship. Lastly, we have been having some serious car trouble lately. But the Lord provided a way for us to replace all 4 tires and the battery in the gold car this past week and we felt much more confident this past weekend when we took it to Missouri!
We deeply cherish your friendship and faithfulness and thank you for your prayers as we move forward in the Call!!
