Yesterday, I had a baking day with the church ladies. We had a great time together as we made banana muffins and coffee cake, which I renamed "tea cake". It seemed more appropriate in Kenya where everyone drinks tea.
Today, we had such a sweet time in church. BJ felt led to have a testimony service, and it was so sweet as one after another, Christians stood up to praise the Lord for what He has done in their lives. Then BJ preached a good message. I soaked it up as it has again been a while since I actually "heard" the preaching between interpreting and the nursery.
After church, a young man named Wasiluwa got baptized. He had gotten saved after church last week, and this week wanted to be baptized.
Then we had our monthly ladies' meeting. Another of the church ladies, Cecilia, brought the devotion for the first time. She taught a good lesson on the life of Rachel in the Bible. There were 16 ladies there. About half of them came down from Olkeri Baptist Church, the church plant that was started last year.
Then we got home, and whew! Relaxed. After hearing a good Sunday evening message together as a family, Seth and BJ went outside for a game of soccer.
|BJ's version of soccer! Seth protested . . . in between laughs!|
He also ordered pizza so that I didn't have to cook. Even sweeter, and it was yummy. Yes, we have finally gotten used to Kenyan pizza, and we love it now. It is not Pizza Hut by any means, but after about a year, it kind of grows on you!
And now, as they say in Swahili, "Usiku mwema." (Goodnight.) I have a feeling that I am going to sleep like a rock tonight. I'm soooooo tired but happy to be right where we are supposed to be . . . for now.
