Geneva’s broom

Geneva has been on 14 mission trips with us.  My wife and I have gotten to know her well.  My wife, who is much nice than I am, wasn't able to attend but sent her a gift of a broom she can use to keep the job site clean.  We brought her a broom last year and she broke it so we hope this one won't.

Arrival in meru

We arrived safely albeit late to the hotel on Sabbath evening.   We got there at about 8:30 and finished up with dinner, worship and our meeting after 10 pm.   So a late night but everyone is energized for the week.   Liked the sign at the hotel.  Haven't had that before!!

Nineteen baptisms!!!

We had a wonderful treat last night. We had one of our youth, Rosie, decide for baptism on Saturday night so we gathered for her baptism before worship on Sunday. After she was baptized, pastor Jonathan asked if there were any others. One by one they stepped forward till we had nineteen (!) total that were baptized for the first time or recommitted themselves! Since most of them were youth that don't have their parents there, the only others that I will mention are David Peganyee sr and jr! The Holy Spirit was moving last night in a powerful way. Very emotional night!

Those baptisms are a realization of why we started these youth mission trips. Praise the Lord that these trips are a tool for the moving among His people!!

Completed school!

We completed the entire school today! The team did amazing and got all of the end and inside walls done. I had a dream last night that we would finish. This team likes trying to douse me with water at the end of the project in celebration. Some times they get me some times they don't. I told them that if they completed I would let them do it. And they did

Thursday construction report

We had a challenging day today but pushed through. We got all of the side walls done and will finish the concrete in the morning and get working on the end walls. Great work by the team day with challenges of rain and one mixer having to go to the other job site for the team coming in today.

We had one of our team members get a little concrete shower when a hole developed on a block. She took it well and got cleaned up ok.

Wednesday report.

We are done with twelve courses all the way around.  We will need to pour in the morning and get three more courses done on the sides to get done on time.   Team is doing great and we have had very little rain.  We did have a mixer malfunction today.   Had to take it apart. Recruited ray to help disassemble.  

Medical had another long day.  They had a two hour bus ride and saw over 60 patients.   Very fulfilling but tiring.  

Vbs had a good day as well.  They had over 80 children today and are making a difference.  We have an awesome team and they are taking on leadership roles they didn't expect.

Tuesday construction report

We are halfway through our construction week. We made good progress today. We are completely done with the eighth course and poured. We have about half of the ninth course done. We are a little behind but hope to catch up.

We had a visitor today. One of the pastors from the conference office came by and worked with us for most of the day. We sure enjoyed having pastor Hamilton with us today. Very hard worker!!

Weather had been great so far, albeit hot. Rains once a day for about ten minutes. We pray that it continues!!
