I, Donna, just arrived back from taking a car full to the airport in Nairobi. Let me explain! Two weeks ago my sister Joy arrived in Kenya. If you follow us on Facebook you have seen pictures. Joy led a workshop with Moms in Prayer as well as encouraged leaders in Western Kenya, she has helped with Bible Clubs and Sunday School, and whatever else usually fills my days.
A few days after Joy arrived in Kenya, Roger (Joy’s husband) and their son (Brad), daughter-in-law (Kate) and their 2 young sons arrived. Brad, Kate and the boys live in South Sudan. Joy and Roger had not seen them in almost 2 years. Our house has been blessed with laughter, hugs and good times.
Everyone leaves today including Paul! Paul will fly to the US to spend time with Nehemiah as well as take advantage of libraries in the Dallas area for research. I will have a much needed quiet week to catch up on work before the girls have their school break.
Thank you for praying for Paul’s work permit. On the day Paul’s permit expired he went to Nairobi with a few clothes in his backpack not knowing if an extension would be granted or if he needed to leave the country. Praise God, that afternoon an extension was granted. He is waiting for a report to be filed before the next step can be taken. Time is ticking away. Please pray for this process!
Great times with family
Safe travel on the Kenyan roads
Great times of ministry with visitors
Continued prayer for Paul’s work permit
Blessed time for Paul and Nehemiah
Travel mercies as everyone travels today
That I will accomplish much in this next week
