This last weekend I was so very blessed to be invited to go on an outreach to Embu. I was asked to come and teach the youth at a technical college about godly relationships, and to help with a VBS at a local church. One of the youth from CC Nairobi has been living and working in Embu for the last year as a teacher at the technical college. The Lord is always so faithful to open doors for His Word and His love to be shared in places we sometimes don't even know about.
I travelled with three other servants who agreed to work with the Fikia Ministry. As we traveled in the matatu (African MiniVan Bus) we went from downtown Nairobi, to outer slums, to green farm lands. As I looked out the window I was amazed at the extreme difference in life only traveling about 2.5 hours out of Nairobi. As we all patiently sat in the matatu waiting for our destination, I began to just pray and listen to music, waiting on the Lord to confirm and solidify the message He would have me teach when we arrived.
We arrived safely and Dennis met us at Embu, and then we climbed into another matatu to go further into the country to a smaller town. Once at our destination, took us to the college and got us settled in our rooms. We freshened up and went into the teaching session.
After the teaching, we all went out for a wonderful walk by the rivers and farms. It was so beautiful, peaceful, and just refreshing. I could definitely get used to staying in such a gorgeous part of God's creation.
I left in the evening after the VBS. Some of the group stayed behind to teach in the church the next day. The pastor has invited us back to do evangelism and outreach, praise the Lord! Please continue to pray for all those in Embu who heard the Gospel, that the Lord would speak to them and draw them closer to Him.
