Once again upon arrival everyone was quietly seated outside the church, the children were relaxed, and we were greeted once again with smiling faces. As we have stated previously, Pastor Timothy is the pastor of this church. He is a wonderful man with a wife and three young children including one set of twins. Timothy’s church is in need of expansion as the church is using his modest home as its office. With three young children in the home this certainly is not the optimum situation. Timothy and his congregation have been praying for a building extension which will become the new church office. Please keep Pastor Timothy and his vibrant church in your prayers.
Our work schedule today was for Jana and Karen to continue in their pharmacy roles, David and Michael work the nets, Sean to deliver the sermon and work the prayer needs, and Doug to do assist with all of the above as needed. That’s pretty much how our day went however David took some time and captured photos of a LOT of kids. Those images will be coming when he gets to a place where he can download them.
One of the best and worst moments of the day occurred in the morning when three women carried a young girl of about 10 years old to the front step of the church. The girl has been having seizures for most of her life that come on without notice and last a day or two before subsiding. Sean and Pastor Frank prayed for the young girl and her family at length and were joined by Doug and David. Sean and Pastor Frank led the three adult ladies in the prayer to accept Christ. Praise God. It was decided that the girl needed to get to higher level care in Nairobi and plans were being put into motion for that to happen. Please pray with us that these three ladies will work with Pastor Timothy so that she can receive the care she needs to lead a fruitful life. Once her treatment options are evaluated the Cotha missions group will develop a plan to support her with her health issues.
Today 1,050 nets were handed out and 820 people received medical attention.
Our God is an awesome God!
