Final Week: Team Dynamics and Preparation

Bwana Yesu asifiwe! Bwana asifiwe tena kanisa wa Mungu! (Praise the Lord Jesus! Praise the Lord again CHurch of God!)...

Soon I shall be re-entering into a land very dear to my heart--KENYA. However, this time will be the first with my wife at my side! HOw sweet it is to have someone constant in your life to refine you and teach you to love better.
While it was a bit of a process narrowing down why God was challenging Thandi and I to lead an outreach team to Kenya while still so young in marriage, we are more excited than ever to jump in with the team. A big part of this, of course, is the strong team dynamic we have built up thus far with the students. Truly, we cannot give out what we ourselves have not first received. And how much more powerful is our giving when done in unity! As it says in Psalm 133, it is there that the Almighty God of all creation commands a blessing--and, oh, how we want to be a blessing to all peoples and nations (tribes) he puts in our path!

This week has been filled with many practical activities to prepare the teams for various forms of culture shock and be on our guard for deceptions from the enemy. We shall go into battle triumphant because of who we are in Christ! (Ephesians 2...Actually, all of Ephesians drills this into the believer).

God bless all of you in unforeseen ways this Christmas!
