The Deaf start arriving halfway through the sign language class because BJ teaches them immediately after his KSL class. The hearing KSL students stay for the Deaf Bible class too.
I love watching my husband teach and interact with the Deaf. He is teaching them through the book of Romans, and right now they are in chapter two. My heart thrilled to watch Simon, a college-age Deaf young man, remember everything BJ had taught them last week. BJ asked review questions, and Simon had the answers. Please pray for Simon. He is not far from the Kingdom of God. Another young deaf man, Sammy, was saved in January. He still comes faithfully to the Bible classes and soaks up the Word of God like a sponge. Now we are seeing that same hunger in Simon that we saw in Sammy last year. Soon BJ will be in Romans chapter 3. Please be praying, my friends! The Holy Spirit is obviously at work in Simon's heart.
Here are some more pictures I took before church. Karen Baptist Church currently meets in a school building, and the grounds are absolutely beautiful.

After church in Karen, we drove back to Nakuru for the evening service. I love making that drive with my husband. We have two and a half hours of quality time to talk and share our hearts--our goals, dreams, and desires with each other. (Seth usually falls asleep!)
During a lull in our conversation, I looked around me at the beauty of Africa. Africa looks different than New Guinea. The Highlands in PNG are breathtakingly beautiful. I've not seen mountains quite like that here. Yet there is a different kind of beauty here that is no less beautiful to me. Driving through the yellow acacia forest in Naivasha. Seeing herds of zebra and antelope on the sides of the road. Looking out over the Great Rift Valley and seeing for miles and miles and miles. I am truly blessed to have such a Creator as my Father!
BJ preached the evening service at Grace. He preached a good missions message. Have I mentioned before that my hubby is my favorite preacher? He preached with ease in Swahili.
Then he taught sign language again after church. I sat in that class too and enjoyed watching the progress that the students are making.
We came home, ate some leftovers, and fell into bed. I was unconscious of anything until almost 7:00 this morning!
